^ post#9

& why did you ignore that part about insulting the bible? even when muslims insult your religion you still have to play by their rules?

"oh its okay for muslims to insult being a jew as long as they dont insult moses who they believe was a muslim prophet"

the point is muslim countries persecute minorities for criticizing their religion. but they are free to insult the belief of others.

THAT MUST CHANGE for the world to progress. there has to be freedom of expression in this interconnected world. freedom to offend everywhere.

And again, I ask, if Jesus (Isa) is also a revered prophet in Islam, why is there hardly ever any outrage from the Muslim community when Jesus is mocked, ridiculed, drawn, lampooned and everything else under the sun? Why does the outrage surround only Muhammad?

Where is there a front page photo of Jesus being mocked, ridiculed, drawn, lampooned and everything else under the sun?

You're not serious, are you? You have never seen anything like that? I have, and often the stuff is hilarious.
Christians/Catholics are the butt of many jokes.

Here is a funny article about what Jesus really did during those missing years:
http://www.theonion.com/articles/arc...e-jesus,34689/

Is this a good enough example, or are you looking for only cartoons? I can find MANY cartoon drawings of Jesus. Are you looking for specific publications?

Some of that is people doing their own thing. I posted a link to the Onion because that is a popular website, and similar to what the French cartoon magazine was like.

Pruzhany, my friend, you must kid. While off the top of my head I cannot think of a 'front page photo,' Jesus takes a beating on the internet and on television. He is a frequent guest on Family Guy a VERY popular television series. Then there are YouTube videos like this classic:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4agr4v8HHyM

But still, you did not answer the question though. Why is there never outrage or violence from fanatics under the umbrella of Islam when it comes to poking fun at Jesus? Why ONLY when it involves Muhammad?

Yes, I'm serious. Show me a link to a photo or cartoon that makes fun of Jesus or Moses just the way it's done of Muhammad on the front of a magazine. I'm not a Muslim and "I" don't find this stuff hilarious.
