How long has it been since this journal has been read? It has been even longer since I have written anything offensive. I must be getting doccile in my old age. Lets shake that up right now with a single sentence.
Radical Islamists are walking Stereotypes and suck at analogies.
Well.... maybe they dont SUCK at analogies.
If you haven't clicked to post a brazen comment yet, congratulations, you now get to know what leads ME to believe this.
Denmark posts a cartoon. A cartoon done tastefully to Denmark but in horrible taste in accordance to Islam. Denmark dropped the ball big time on being insensitive. Denmark... say you're sorry right now!! Seriously. You should be more respectful of people's cultures. Islamists should be mad at you. They should be very mad at you. Their faith prohibits any graphic depiction of their god. Denmark, whether knowingly or not offended an entire religion. Freedom of speech? Yes, responsibility of free speech? no.
But that is where all of it stops.
The cartoon was Muhamed wearing a turban shaped as a bomb. No doubt a play on Radical's use of hyperviolence under the veil of their religion.
Suicide Bombers are considered Martyrs. Killing thousands of people.. blowing them up.. because they challenge your faith is ok.. or hell.. using your religion to blow someone up period is acceptable. To Radical Islamists
And that is what the cartoon portrayed. A Religious symbol being masked over truely violent and destructive behavior.
The Radical's response?
LETS BLOW SHIT UP, LETS BURN THIS DOWN... LETS BE DESTRUCTIVE.
Wow... Maybe they should step back and stop looking at how the cartoon was made and start looking at why the cartoon was made. And I don't think that is the case with a great many of Islam faitful. Remember: I'm only speaking of the 'radicals' and 'protestors'
Iran took it personally. They issued a Holocaust cartoon contest. Great idea. I can see how that would be extremely offensive TO JEWS. Denmark is a Christian Country. Iran sucks at analogies. They could have done much better by simply saying that Denmark as a country really hasn't ever contributed ANYTHING to the world until just now. It wouldn't necessarly be true, but at least it would make sense.
And well done Iran, for fueling fire. Way to work toward world peace by promoting a new kind of hate of your own. That is what Denmark did right? Well if by Government you mean Newspaper and by President you mean Cartoonist, then sure.
So a seemingly tasteless cartoon turned into pratically WWIII because people lost sight that this was a cartoonist, upsetting a religion. Do we really need to get our governments involved, fight this out? Why should we? Radicals are pretty good at blowing up things and escalating this ridiculiously all by themselves
