No typo. One of the reasons the protestors are pissed is because the cartoon was saying that Islam is a religion of violence. Ironically, the protestors then KILL people.
I don't care what religion you are. That's just plain stupid. They made a cartoon of the prophet and NOW there is a big fight over it? There have been depictions of Mohammad throughout the last thousand years and there wasn't a fight then. Why is it that there is a problem now? And look at some of the cartoons some draw about Jesus and about Abraham. You don't see people killing one another over that. Boo hoo! Muslims themselves have depictions of Mohammad!
I agree that the cartoon was offensive. It shouldn't have been reprinted and the Danes should apologize for it. Well guess what? They did! But guess what else!? The Danish also have freedom of speech. You can say whatever the fuck you want. Sorry, that's how it works. No matter how offensive to any group.
And to be honest, this isn't "just a few kooks." This is hundreds of thousands. Look at the news stories on this and all of the protests. At each protest, property is distroyed, people are hurt, and people are killed in many of them. All for a cartoon? Waah! Waah! It was not a direct attack on Islam. It was sharing an opinion. It would be like someone telling me that homosexuality is wrong and then I slit their throat because my personal philosophy says that is blasphemy.
