They're ALL one big cartoon

I'm sick and tired of the whole friggin world pandering to the muslim masses when they decide something offends them and then go on rampage. Free speech, religious insensitive...I don't give a crap. Of all people, these towelheads have long ago lost their right to protest ANYONE being insensitive to their feelings. As far as I'm concerned, live by the sword, die by the sword. You don't like the cartoon?! Awww... off with your head. Do you have any idea how many insensitive cartoons I'd be able to find in the muslim newspapers on a moment's notice?!? Since when do they give a shit about other people's holy sites, holy objects or holy people?

And now, in an obvious ass-licking exercise, the US grabs its own ankles and condemns the cartoons while for once, the Europeans- and yes, even France, are sticking to their guns.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Washington on Friday condemned caricatures in European newspapers of the Prophet Mohammad, siding with Muslims who are outraged that the publications put press freedom over respect for religion.

By inserting itself into a dispute that has become a lightning rod for anti-European sentiment across the Muslim world, the United States could help its own battered image among Muslims.

"These cartoons are indeed offensive to the belief of Muslims," State Department spokesman Kurtis Cooper said in answer to a question. "We all fully recognize and respect freedom of the press and expression but it must be coupled with press responsibility. Inciting religious or ethnic hatreds in this manner is not acceptable."

"We call for tolerance and respect for all communities for their religious beliefs and practices," he added.

Major U.S. publications have not republishing the cartoons, which include depictions of Mohammad as a terrorist. That is in contrast to European media, which responded to the criticism against the original Danish newspaper that printed the caricatures by republishing the offensive images themselves.

Exactly. After all the hub-bub about the showing of executions on Arab TV, and how they don't give a crap about our sensitivites, you'd think the idiots would know hypocracy when they saw it.
