    Seems to me, if you want to have rights respected, you need to respect those rights yourself and not abuse them. What purpose is served by spreading further "cartoons" that are offensive to a large population of the world. The reaction of the few who chose to murder innocent people in retaliation of this exercise of expression can only be justified if such wanton disrespect is copied and expanded. One could argue that in the context of an article or expression of an idea, the use of humour in this form helps to make the point. That doesn't extend, however, to compounding the insult for no purpose other than to offend and punish.

    Do you French and Americans want to start insulting Aboriginals do you? If you have such freedom to be obnoxious then what is all the fuss over the Redskins logo?

    Is attacking African Americans with media an act of freedom and artistic expression? This is what the world has come to with USA leading and France as "the capital of the world" is it? You French and Americans have the right to be offensive, obnoxious and provocative and this is freedom is it? Well not in Australia. Us Aussies disagree with your uncivilized idea of freedom.
    Funny thing is...it almost sounds like you are PROUD of that.

    Now...should we flood the world with images of Muhammad. No. Not unless I am missing something and Muhammad is doing something today worthy of ridicule. Should we flood the world with images of scumbag terrorists placing them and their actions in despicable light? Yes...of course.

    Well, isn't that just too damned bad.

    Nope,

    They were meant to be funny. If buncha idiots cannot take a joke, then the point of disagreement serves like a cultural barrier that demonstrates that the more tolerant live within the area.

    Besides, I keep telling this, works of CH were meant to be funny, and the content was nearly everything - Jokes were not only about Muslims.

    Most Muslims have no interest in "fighting" it. They'll just be annoyed with you for doing it. Why annoy someone intentionally when it's possible that they could even help you deal with the radical gangsters?
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.

There is only killing them by the boatload before they can do it to you, so that the rest are so scared they will never even think about crossing you.

    I get what you're saying, but I don't equate childish behavior with murderous behavior.

    #2) You're equating cartoons with attempted genocide?

    It's childish behavior but using grown up toys to throw around the room.

    Annoyed people are preferred over dead people. Every time.
