An Egyptian minor offenses court on January 10, 2015, sentenced a student accused of writing Facebook posts that insulted Islam to three years in prison. The sentence, one of several handed down on blasphemy charges in recent years, came amid a coordinated government crackdown on perceived atheists.

Muslims can freely insult other religions, but not the other way around.

Every nation has a right to have apostasy and blasphemy laws, including non-Muslim nations

I was surprised that Blasphemy and Apostasy laws are quite common even in Christian and secular nations.


We found that laws restricting apostasy and blasphemy are most common in the Middle East and North Africa, where 14 of the 20 countries (70%) criminalize blasphemy and 12 of the 20 countries (60%) criminalize apostasy. While apostasy laws exist in only two other regions of the world – Asia-Pacific and sub-Saharan Africa – blasphemy laws can be found in all regions, including Europe (in 16% of countries) and the Americas (31%).

We counted and categorized reports of the presence of these laws in 2012 as part of an extension of our research on restrictions on religion around the world. Nearly three-in-ten countries in the world (29%) had a high or very high level of government restrictions in 2012 – these countries include about 64% of the world’s population, according to our report.

No, I still don't get the point. Why don't you find me one of Jesus and one of Moses? Comparing a propaganda drawing of a Jew is not the same as drawing a caricature of a prophet.

Nope. But links would be fine of negative caricatures of Jesus and Moses.

muslims have their own version of jesus and moses. its off limits for them. so what is left for them to insult in your religion is the state of jewishness itself.

as for insulting christianity, this is common:

So no. You don't have any done by ANY other religion. So Mohammed is OK, but Jesus and Moses are not by ANY other religion. How about Atheist? Got one from them?
