the choas is still on...

Well… it seems that the story with the Denmark’s harassments to our beloved Prophet Mohammed PBUH is not over yet!
I came upon this article written in Arabic by AbdulBari Atwan… it is a good one… to read the full text in Arabic click here
Here is some of it translated to English by me… so sorry for any mistake…
[[ we live in the west for 30 years now and we admit that there are laws and culture that protect freedom of speech unlike the Arab world where there is oppression and no freedoms… but we also know that there are certain limitations that would prevent any ridicule to religions and other beliefs…. So what happened is only an Anti-Islam act that all started after 9/11…
None of the European newspapers or TV channels would dare to ridicule the Jews or Christianity… or question the story of the holocaust and if you did there are laws that would put those who do that in Jail for years… anti-Semitic in the west is a crime but Anti-Islam is a normal thing and is considered freedom of speech… and any objection to that is countered with rejections and accusations of retardation….]]


Unfortunately we live in a double standard world… were laws are chosen on whom to be subjected… we as Muslims were most of our rights are lost not by the west but by our own countries and selves… we should re-think a lot… and revise the way we perceive our culture and our Islam so as to be able to stand up and call for our rights back!!!
We should go back to our Islam and stop this chaos that we partaken in… uncontrolled anger is very dangerous… blaming it all on the west is not right… and going to violent measures is surely WRONG….
We should remember that our Prophet Mohammed PBUH was sent as a mercy to the humankind… we should try to imitate that… and fight with reason for our rights and dignity back…
