In the News: Muslim cartoon fury claims liveshttp://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/4684652.stmAt least five people have been killed in Afghanistan as protests against European cartoons mocking the Prophet Muhammad swept across the country.
This is just ridiculous, i've been trying to avoid commenting on this issue considering how sensitive it is, but its got to the point where its like 'enough already'..
Most of the people going crazy over this have not even seen the 'cartoons', it was printed in a Danish Paper over 4 months ago and reprinted by some European papers last week. Rather than ignoring them they've bought more attention to them, at least it got me curious enough to go looking for them since all the papers here were too scared to print them. Of course i would not be silly
enough to upload them to my blog...
Anyway the point is, the cartoons are not even funny and the whole exercise was probably aimed to prove that a lot of muslims are extremely intolerant...
A protester here in London was dressed up as a suicide bomber http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4687996.stm
the irony of it all was that the guy was not even a devout muslim but a convicted drug dealer (who has now been returned to prison for violating the conditions of his parole)
But i digress..
The cartoons may have been offensive but the reaction to them has gone completely overboard..Quote:
