It seems that Islam is once again in the limelight for chucking a major whammy over a cartoon from Denmark, or so the Aussie papers are reporting. Ongoing reports indicate that protesting, nay, rioting is happening across the world, or at least the northern hemisphere.
So far, at least one protester has been killed outright & many injured as protesters attack embassies & staff for allowing a cartoon featuring “Mohammed” to be printed.
Without pointing out the obvious thing -> The Editor of the Newspaper is responsible for approving the cartoons printing, not the embassy staff, nor the government. It is a rediculous error in judgement to endanger your own life, and that of others by protesting violently about something as rediculous as a cartoon.
Obviously the Islamic religion can’t take a joke, or perhaps it’s just fanatics using the flimsiest excuse to run amok once again. The way the papers report this though … it’s another negative strike against the Islamic Religion.
I would like to point out that the majority of the Islamic religious personage in Australia are well balanced individuals which are currently not participating in the rediculous rioting, and may it remain that way.
I’d personally like to see the police force in these countries pull out some “Non-lethal” weapons and beat seven kinds of hell through the rioting crowds, as I would suggest that the rioters are not representative of the Islamic religion, but simply agitators trying to make excuses for anti-social behaviour.
Would anyone else like to comment on this disgraceful state of affairs that is inflicting our world atm?
