We need to hold accountable those that over react to the film.

A play last year portrayed Jesus Christ as a homosexualbut nobody got killed over the insult.

The Muslim world needs to understand cultures are different and we cherish free speech. We will not silence the idiots because of your murders, but we may have to fight back. The radical Muslims are making this worse not the film maker.

It makes Muslims feel good; it gives them respect they cannot get other wise.

The big issue — one that Muslims will not touch — is that the material for these anti-Islam movies comes directly from the Quran and especially the hadith. If critics of Islam want to paint Islam, Mohammed and Muslims as violent and evil, they simply dig up passages from Islam’s own writings — and these are the same reliable sources that Muslims endlessly quote (just that both are selective about which verses they use).

Muslims refuse to consider any criticism, of Islam, even when those criticisms are reasonable. It is easier for Muslims to do hate and rage than to consider the ethics of many of the things in the Quran and hadith. There is no hope for peace. Our values are different. The future will not be nice.

PS: I have never seen any anti-Islam movie. They are a waste of time and say nothing not already found in Islam’s most reliable traditions. Note also that whatever he was, and there is plenty of both good and evil in Islam’s own accounts, Mohammed was not a fool.
