No, Wood . . . they are NOT understandable. There is NO excuse or basis for such behavior in response to cartoons or speech, PERIOD!

The most widely distributed cartoon and the only one seen by most of the Western world was the one with a man wearing a turban with a lit bomb poking out of it. The ones in that vein probably would not have caused much of an uproar. but the ones that were of graphic. explicit perverted sex acts and labelled things like "Muhammad and a Muslim" did cause considerable anger. I can not prove the purpose was to anger Muslims, possibly they were meant to anger the the Swedes. But, it sure looks like Muslims were the target.
Anger is no excuse...Do you see Christians rioting over some of the nasty cartoons of Christ?

Every one express his love as he wishes.

If it is your mother/race that is being insulted, you as children would have different responses and some might be illegal.

Problems will not finish as long as there is love with different wills.

Huminity must submit for one will so that love will be peace.

Otherwise, love will be punishment as it is the reason behind each problem.

If you and I love that girl, you would want her for you, and I would want her for me. The opposite wills will let love Hells.

People have a right to mock ideas they disapprove of, and that's a right we in the west are very serious about protecting even when when the idea is something we dont' agree with.

Islam too will need to accept this if they want to join the rest of the wider modern world. Not everyone is Muslim, and people who think Islam is silly or corrupt do not have be reverent toward it.

it is so much easier to leave the church when you reside in a country where they dont slit your throat for doing so.

No, the response wasn't even understandable. Who the hell in their right mind understands death threats over a cartoon? I'm losing any shred of respect I might have had for you, Woodrow. Trying to justify baseless violence while saying you think it's wrong? For shame. Frankly, I have more respect for those muslims that state openly what they believe in, rather than ones like you who try to make excuses and justify things that you claim go against Islam.

No, the violence is NOT understandable. Killing people, damaging property is not ever the way to deal with anger.

It makes me angry every time I see Muslims hurting others because they are angry.

Woodrow LI: I had gotten the impression that you were more capable of independent thought than most of the other Muslims on the forum. I am sorry to see that you are going along with the general Ayatollah-approved, reprehensible attitude toward the creator of the cartoon. Very disheartening.
