Cartoon Outrage

This week there have been violent protest in Muslim nations against countries in which newspapers printed cartoons that were offensive to Islam. The cartoons were most certainly offensive and they are not something that I would ever print. I wouldn't ever imply that Mohammed was a terrorist just like I wouldn't ever say that about Jesus. Most Muslims aren't terrorists and if I were Muslim I would probably be offended by the cartoons, too. But the only thing that burning buildings and throwing rocks in protest does is make the cartoon right. The Muslim world would do better to sit back and think about how they can change the stereotypes that the Western world holds than try to kill people. All that they're doing now is reinforcing those stereotypes and making everyone even more afraid of Islam.
