He can draw any cartoon and say anything he wants and that is his right. If you get offended by it, then that is too bad. You probably need to grow up.

This cartoonist is a loser. I hate Islam, but I still hate him.

He did this for the same reason Salman Rushdie did: to get attention and money. It's a great way to avoid having to be creative and original. It's easy to make fun of religions. 

I don't feel sorry for this guy. These reactions are exactly what he wanted. Lap it up Lars. 


Putting your own ideas aside

Freedom of speech is suppose to be based on freedom as long as it doesn't hurt or disturb others. This is being violated here.

Would insulting some nationalities or ethnic population be accepted? Conceptually this is similar.

I think the Swedish Police should send these people to their country of origine, so they can enjoy their own special kind of freedom of speech..:-)


The police are torturing innocent and peaceful protestors...

The police are using brutality to quash the peaceful protestors. Somebody should write a letter to the Secretary General.
