I see that the 'preposterous' sugestion in certain european newspapers that a certain religion is full of terrorists and extremists is being answered in the usual fashion by those it was sterotyping.

i.e. terror and extreme action.

If the BNP can get taken to court for racial hatred and incitement (and rightly so), I trust the parents of the baby with the Bin Laden logo on his forehead and those calling for butchering of westerners and glorifying 7/7 will also be making an appearance in front of a court some time soon...

The group of "protesters" carrying placards inciting murder and threatening terrorist attacks, (and who, I am sure, are not representative of Muslims) should have been arrested and charged.

Frankly I am "offended" that there is even a discussion about these cartoons. No public individual, or any group, party, religion, state or whatever can or should expect special treatment. All are open to satire, ridicule or even insult - within the laws of slander and libel. This should be made resoundingly clear - not pandered to in the usual mealy mouthed manner as Jack Straw did.

Its one rule for them and another for us mate, There's a silent war going on and we arent winning it. It does'nt matter what is said or done to offend us thats all right ,But when they cop something like a few humourous cartoons its a fuse lit for trouble makers to go on rampages and attack foreign embassies .Criminals and other troublemakers in the middle east are usually met by extreme force and put down,But not this time. Why are they allowed to demonstrate over here when no british newspapers have even printed these cartoons ? The more these people get away with the worse they become. REMEMBER ENOCH POWELLS RIVERS OF BLOOD SPEECH controversial BUT TRUE.

Did no-one catch the joke on the TV show, 'Mock the Week' by the Irish presenter, concerning the hunt for Bin Laden.

It could have been considered both racist and mocking people with disabilities.

It was, however, still bl00dy funny !

For those protesting in this country , as you describe Vis yes arrest and charge, the problem in third world countries is that all press is state controlled and their population therefore believe that it a statement by Denmark and not a statement by a one off Danish cartoonist
300 years ago in our country you could have been of the same mind, they really should make some effort to catch up

The problem is the liberal attitude in this country.
they wouldn't do in their own country so why should protesting by these fanatics be tolerated in the free speaking western world...

DG, I reckon the problem is that we are NOT a liberal country. If we were we would passionately defend freedom of speech and the right of anyone to have a pop at any religion just as much as the right to follow a religion. Too may people, including it seems governments and local authorities, like to impose draconian thought-police censorship on one side only.

Tell u all something . Sooner or later people are going to start voting for extremist movements instead of the parties we have in office now. Remember the Isle of dogs when a B N P councillor was voted in because the local's got sick of outsiders getting council accomodation . That was a warning for us all . Like I said There is a silent war going on and we are losing.
