    You don't have to be an Arab to be a Muslim. You really didn't know that?

    You do fail to recognize one thing. Most of the Middle East countries are not free societies--in other words, a republic like ours. Every time a radical ideology starts up it gets curtailed here in the USA.

    Take the Westboro Baptist Church for instance. I would call that quite radical, but even those folks know when to stop because of laws and regulations created by our (USA) free society.

    There are tons of people who are Muslim who aren't Middle-Eastern, in fact, there are tons of black people who are Muslims. There are tons of Middle-Eastern people who aren't Muslim. Come on, surely you've figured that out by now.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Wrong. Google white Arabs. See what new knowledge you will have.

    -You are directly advocating censure by asking me to "stop posting cartoons" just as the murderers wanted

    -You seem angry to describe the "enemy" as "us". If you don't like seeing political cartoons perhaps you shouldn't be on the internet? A place for freedom of expression.

    It is your right, but is it always in good taste?

    Who cares about good taste? If you don't like it, don't look at it.

    No, but neither are the Kardashians. We just learn to accept the idea that there are people who have different beliefs, ideas and pleasures. The "pursuit of happiness' is the most insightful phrase in any constitution anywhere and from that we learn to tolerate others in their pursuit. It's a pain in the ass sometimes, but worth it.

    Yes the Declaration of Independence is a beauty to behold.

    But you could always say, or someone could, that it's not in good taste. That's the exact same thing the Mullah's say. So no, that's not a legitimate reason not to do it because nobody could ever publish anything if they had to worry about everyone's "taste".
