Armed militants angered by a cartoon
GAZA CITY — Armed militants angered by a cartoon drawing of the Prophet Muhammad published in European newspapers surrounded EU offices in Gaza on Thursday and threatened to kidnap foreigners as outrage over the caricatures spread across the Islamic world. More than 300 students demonstrated in Pakistan, chanting "Death to France!" and "Death to Denmark!" — two of the countries where newspapers published the drawings. Other protests were held in Syria and Lebanon, while officials in Afghanistan, Iran and Indonesia condemned the publication. In Paris, the daily France Soir fired its managing editor after it ran the caricatures Wednesday.
A Jordanian newspaper took the bold step of running some of the drawings, saying it wanted to show its readers how offensive the cartoons were, although its editor also said he did not want "to promote such blasphemy." In an editorial, it also urged the world's Muslims to "be reasonable."
Foreign journalists, diplomats and aid workers began leaving Gaza as gunmen there threatened to kidnap citizens of France, Norway, Denmark and Germany unless those governments apologize for the cartoon.
Gunmen in the West Bank city of Nablus entered four hotels to search for foreigners to abduct and warned their owners not to host guests from several European countries. Gunmen said they were also searching apartments in Nablus for Europeans.
HAHAHA France spent more time and money kissing up to islamists .. look where ignorance now gets them

Just another example of the measley 1% of Muslims who are wacko sucking all the media attention away from all the good Muslims.

if only the 99% muslim have the gut to tell that 1% muslim to STFU... that would have taken care of the situation, wouldn't it?

It is hysterical. It is difficult as hell to find the cartoons they're all up in arms about. I found two and well, I'll give a link to those if any of those people care.
I want the rest though.

the one had muhammad in heaven with a bomb saying to someone.."should we tell them we are running out of virgins?"

It's more than just 1% of the religion of peace that is running buck wild right now.
Yahoo is reporting that there are protests in Egypt, London, England, Morrocco, Iraq...

My tongue was firmly placed against the side of my cheek when I posted about the 1% crap.

These people are fu*king crazy. Im starting to think they're a completley subset of the human race that just cant grasp the reality they live in.

What's going to be even more sad is when all those countries pucker up once again and kiss these radical's asses. I for one would rather be kidnapped than have no spine.

Religion sure is a powerful tool. It seems like a good idea when you can convice a murder or rapist that if he is born again god will forgive him. ****ty when some lunatics interpret it as ok to cut the heads off of innocent people.

Exactly...they're born and bred ignorant and militant in these crazy countries, so I cant blame the peoplmals over there too much (yeah, I know...I just made a word up )....But, what truly sickens me is exactly what you just highlighted...the fact that the people in charge of the most powerful nations on the planet bend over backward to appease a bunch of *******s who are literally trying to bring us back to the dark-ages...and WHY do our leaders do this?!?!Originally Posted by satchmo23

They do it for the same reason all leaders have allowed aggressors to do what they pleased throughout history... They're cowards, spineless cowards.Originally Posted by kwyckemynd00
They would rather live in fear and trepidation than risk dying with honor. Every once in a while someone will get a pair and print something like those articles but they're kinda like that loud mouth at the bar who runs their mouth but when you threaten to smack em in the teeth they tuck tail and run instead of backing up what they said. The only time these guys will put up a fight is when they have no choice and then all the sudden they're America's best friend again.

I would like to see the cartoon. I've looked for it, but pages will not come up. Protesting something you don't agree with is fine. Kidnapping Innocent civilians should only bring them swift death from a well placed shot.

Its pathetic - these militant asshol*s have had millenia to catch up with modern society. Its one of the freaking 'cradles of human civilization' for christ's sake! They've been here longer than all of us!Exactly...they're born and bred ignorant and militant in these crazy countries, so I cant blame the peoplmals over there too much (yeah, I know...I just made a word up )....But, what truly sickens me is exactly what you just highlighted...the fact that the people in charge of the most powerful nations on the planet bend over backward to appease a bunch of *******s who are literally trying to bring us back to the dark-ages...and WHY do our leaders do this?!?!
And still they'd rather live in **** and fear than just respect others and get on with their business. Im not saying they have to be American - just stop hating everyone who isnt a damn muslim extreemist.
They've had enough time to get their heads out of their collective asses.

so true. call me a "americas the best" kind of person if you wish, but it's not too amazing to me that of all the "cradles of human civilization" (explained well in guns germs and steel) america made it out as powerful as it did, blowing others away. all this said.... america is going to lose it and is sllighty already losing it (IMO), if they keep being "pussies".Originally Posted by BigVrunga

thats horrible....makes me wonder how people actually think that those people "aren't so bad".....i know as christians, they do not have the most peachy of all history either....but muslims....yeah....i think they take the cakeOriginally Posted by bpmartyr

LOL, the reason we're all a bunch of pussies is because relicide (I made it up) is supposedly unjustifiable. Is it fair to wipe out a whole slew of people because their interpretations of their religion cause them to be a bunch of dark age wanna live in fanatics?
Well, maybe. It worked for the branch davidians. It could probably work for crazy muslims too.
There's no "good" way to solve the problem. By the way, I did find all 12 cartoons and I'm just saying to myself "So this is what these dumbasses are upset about? If only I could go back in time ..."
Warning, the captions are in Danish and to make it even worse, the Danish is translated to French. The cartoons are hilarious but aren't even anything to be upset about. I think these idiots just want a holy war.

LOL...the violence is escalating. Wow... I hate to laugh at this, but, there is only one way to make an idealist moron wake up. You beat him over the head with reality until his eyes are crossed.
