So here's a question. According to Islam, Jesus is a great prophet along the lines of Muhammad. I think we all know that he (Jesus) has been on the satirical end many times on TV shows (Family Guy), comedy sketches and magazines which can sometimes be rather irreverent . How come fanatical Muslims don't get their underwears in knots about that but will lose their minds if Muhammad is ridiculed? Not trying to give them any additional bright ideas, but I'm curious about this bit of hypocrisy.

Because Islam is the religion of peace.

Nonsense! Islam is a corruption of Christianity created in sibling rivalry with the jewish origins of Christianity. They copied wholesale the beatitudes and added spurious justifications for conquest and subjugation of all other religions and peoples. It is a barbaric and intolerant religion that has not outgrown its primitive roots and remains stagnant in a 14th century culture.

The World is divided into armed camps ready to commit genocide just because they can't agree on whose fairy tales to believe.

Over the centuries, Jesus became more and more associated to Christendom which muslims associate to and only to the crusades.

That may have forced them to ostracize Jesus from their prophet love fests

The answer could be very simple, namely because Muslims hate Christians and Christianity.More about read here:

By "misappropriated", you mean that freedom of expression is cherished and exercised, correct? Not like Islamic "republics" in which any deviation from the theocratic line is harshly punished. "Misappropriated" actually means 'stolen'...the West certainly didn't misappropriate freedom of expression from Islamic countries where there is precious little of it.
