I sympathize with Danish cartoonist

The actions of Muslims who try to blow up a plane on Christmas, or of Muslims who attack Christians for drawing cartoons that may offend Muslims, will NOT win any converts to Islam.

Danish political cartoonist Kurt Westergaard faced a horrific scene with his 5-year-old granddaughter when they had to hide in a “panic room” inside his home after a man smashed in his front door while wielding an axe and a knife. The 28-year-old Somali then attacked responding police, who shot him. Westergaard is the creator of the cartoons of Muhammad that triggered worldwide protests and led to calls for his death by Muslims.'

This news makes me sympathize with the cartoonist and makes me want to read more about him and view his cartoons. Violent protests and attacks on the cartoonist have only drawn more attention to the cartoons that offend conservative Muslims so much.

It seems to me that these Muslims who want to kill Christians on behalf of Islam are only shooting tolerant Muslims in the foot.

"tolerant Muslims

Or moderates are in fact the most dangerous of all. They lull people into a false sense of security, and create the impression that Islam is just another tradition. The other day there was one of those moderate on TV explaining how martyrs were not part of the teachings of the Koran, that the Koran was about "justice", but we all know that Justice does not mean the same thing to us as it does to the martyrs, they in fact are following the teachings.

Until Islam is reformed, it will remain dangers, and more so from the moderates. That is why I prefer President Nut Job in Iran to the reformers. With Nutjob you know exactly who your dealing with.

Considering how many Muslims there are now in Britain, it is remarkable how few natives have converted to Islam. I think this is also true in the rest of Europe.

In Norway, a group of liberal Muslims has denounced the attempts by Muslim extremists to censor what they oppose like Jylands-Posten cartoons. Read Edmund Standing's article at
