All you have to do to insult muslims and mohammed is to quote his own words! Yes, to quote the hate verses from the Qur'an is considered hate speech by Muslims now and it is illegal in 5 EÜ countries. That is how far lost we have become, like forbidding the criticism of Hitler in the 1930s. Incredible.

No Muslim ruled land has freedom of speech, conscience, press, religion - Allah forbids it all.

If this was a Muslim being convicted to death for insulting Jesus, which the Qur'an definitely does, Obama, the whole of the western media and political establishment would be screaming. But when the victim is a non-Muslim and the perpetrators are Muslims they are all strangely silent. There is genocide against all non-Muslims across the Muslim dominated world and such silence from our media and "leaders". Where is Obama?

I interestingly just had a discussion with one of my Care2 friends about discrimination, hatred for Muslims and making a choice on where you live and what you can and can't do there. We can pontificate all we want, but the reality is that if we choose to live anywhere that 98% of the people believe a certain way, but we don't, then we have to take responsibility for any words or actions we take that could offend them. Our only option is to leave and move where others agree with us. Otherwise, we get to be evangelical, if we choose, but we also have to face that we may be martyred as many of the early apostles were.

the very least the non muslim world should do is deport all who teach islam... as it is... with their families.....it is a predatory cult... .. they would be happier at home killing each other and braying at the gates of paradise... God help them to find Salvation before it is too late.

So predictable. You turn the tables and it's a different outcome. PITIFUL

More proof that religion causes insanity. And, haven't Christians done the same thing?

Kamia, that is one of the silliest comments I have ever heard. If you live in a country and have done for many generations do you give up your home and land? Jews are used to that, they have been forced out of many countries continually and my family were from what is now Poland. It is not easy to leave everything behind. Jews were forced out of the Muslim controlled countries in the 1950s and now the Christians are being massacred. Those lands were their homes before the Muslims invaded so they must leave and go where? As Muslims invade and take over countries, where do those residents go? You will have to make that choice in your lifetime and you will watch your children be forced to convert, be killed or you will have to pay jizya for the right to live.

The area of Pakistan was once Hindu. Islam, which came very long after Hinduism, has no tolerance for Christians, Hindus, Buddhists. Islam took over, and everyone has been suffering since.

Even the Muslims suffer, especially the females, from Islam.

Much of the Christian population is destitute. I'm sure they would leave if they could. They are extremely mistreated by the Pakistani Muslims. Shia Muslims fear for their lives in Sunni-controlled Pakistan.

Well the Pope claims, still, the right to fine imprison and put to death all who will not accept Jesus as their personal savior..
Mormons gloat about the day they get to fine imprison and put to death all who will not worship Jesus as he was meant to be worshiped, with bloody sacrifices :0)
Muslims claim the same rights..and only they use them..openly..
the others have ways of dealink vis zis problem.:)
A human problem. Lunacy rules here on planet Krypton :)
Amazingly cannot be seen by the sufferers :) Nor many of their victims :) Happily conforming and obedient slaves..patriots, who let their precious America turn into a corporate fascist regime from hell, all the developed world has fallen to Mammon, while off creating wars and death on foreign soils for oils n burses, whacking the torture darlings of nato..:) Now a corporate mercenary army.
On their bloody knees to Jeezzzus..now go kill em boys :0)
NO monopolies anywhere on any sort of depravity..it rule the earth..:)

Religion is a barrier to relationship with the Divine.

Boods, Obama will intercede when hell freezes over. OK, it did recently but seriously, there is an American Christian in Iran who has been held in their prison illegally and beaten so badly that he needs urgent medical treatment. Obama had every opportunity to help him but Muslims don't consider kuffirs worth saving or apostates so really couldn't be bothered.

I think the last Pope spoke out for Aisa Bibi but no-one else has.

"A Muslim prays five times a day, and on each occasion he recites the Fatiha, the first verse of the Koran, a number of times. This verse describes Christians as “those who have gone astray” and Jews as “those who have incurred Your wrath [also God’s wrath].” We see from this that Muslims execrate Christians and Jews a number of times in the course of a single prayer, which they repeat five times a day."
