Found this in the Washington Post.

I heard Salman Rushdie on BBC Radio 4 yesterday making some really good points on this issue.

Sad, Mad, Crazy. Sheep, many of them. They are not protesters, they are troublemakers with a larger agenda.

There are over 3000 comments to that article and the webpage is freezing up because people are accessing the webpage constantly.

I thought it was over generalizing. There are supposedly 17 million people living in Cairo, so if you turned the protestors into a percentage of that number it would be a very small percentage.

There's no doubt that the film maker (Jewish this journalist says in the article elsewhere I read he was Coptic Christian) needed to be a bit more sensitive with this film. It was hate speech, he wanted to stir the proverbial s*&t! And he did. So did that freak Pastor Terry Jones when he burned the Koran.

Not every Muslim will act or has acted violently. A lot of these protestors are the same guys who are soccer hooligans. More brawn than brains.

The pen is mightier than the sword, so let's see a Muslim film maker make a satire of Jesus. That would make it even.

I find intolerance intolerable. :)

Good one! I just read this in The Balkan Chronicle. Though I find it hard to understand how men who grow beards consider themselves to be more prophet-like, the author does make some very valid points.

Religion is an excuse for strife not the cause of it.

Show love and if you're lucky you might receive some. That is John's new religion.

Just a blog post about Freedom of Expression, and I mention Monty Python and the movie The Life of Brian.

PS I like that new philosophy of yours John.

Good blog Loretto but I think it was written due to your frustration at recent events. These 'protests' are part of a war and the people being told their religion and prophet have been offended are # "only a pawn in their game".
