yet another thing offends moslems. Why are they even in Sweden, I want to know. Why do a few arrive and want the whole country to adapt to THEM? That is intolerance and arrogance on a huge scale.

YOU seem to be VERY offended that 300 people ( hardly enough to take over the whole country) should stage a LEGAL and PEACEFUL demonstration . Why does this get you so bent ? Is it just your FASCIST nature ?

Some Muslims opposed the protest.

"I think the demonstration is counterproductive and will only serve to reinforce any prejudices people have about Muslims," said Mohamed Omar, editor of Minaret magazine. "Nerikes Allehanda published the picture to illustrate a story. It's irrational to regard their decision to publish as being offensive to Muslims."

The number of rape charges in Sweden has tripled in just above twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six - 6 - times as common today as they were a generation ago. Most other kinds of violent crime have rapidly increased, too. Instability is spreading to most urban and suburban areas.

According to a new study from the Crime Prevention Council, BrĂ¥, it is four times more likely that a known rapist is born abroad, compared to persons born in Sweden. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. According to these statistics, almost half of all perpetrators are immigrants. In Norway and Denmark, we know that non-Western immigrants, which frequently means Muslims, are grossly overrepresented on rape statistics. In Oslo, Norway, immigrants were involved in two out of three rape charges in 2001. The numbers in Denmark were the same, and even higher in the city of Copenhagen with three out of four rape charges. Sweden has a larger immigrant, including Muslim, population than any other country in northern Europe. The numbers there are likely to be at least as bad as with its Scandinavian neighbors. The actual number is thus probably even higher than what the authorities are reporting now, as it doesn't include second generation immigrants. Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm, who has investigated violent crimes in Svea high court, found that 85 per cent of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or by foreign parents.

Ironic that you should use the insult "monkey" ... which faith proudly boasts of living in the 7th century? Which true believers wage eternal war against all others in order to claim 72 virgins?

The minority adapts to the majority. That process is called assimilation. Look it up!

Pictures of mohammad are forbidden by Islam. If muslim countries want to not show them, then that is their right. Secular countries should show any picture they want. If people get offended then that is their own problem.
There was a history channel documentary on I saw on google a few days ago. The narrator told us that Islam forbade th showing of the prophet. This documentary didn't show mohammad, even though it was made by a secular company. I find that offensive!!!!

Your religion is not sacred to non muslims. I hope more and more cartoons of mohammad appear - not just for the sake of insulting muslims, but to show that no idea should be sacred. Everything is up for grabs. Even if more people die, we all have to assert this.

start the cartoons a rollin'

If this were only a picture of Muhammed (pbuh).. maybe it wouldnt be such a problem. This isn't a picture of Muhammed.. this is a picture of a DOG with a human face labelled Muhammed.

The offense is not in them drawing a picture of muhammed... the offense is in them drawing Muhammed as a dog.

If we were to put your face on a dog's body.. I think, that perhaps if you had any kind of blood in you, you would get offended as well.

That's not a good example, because I wouldn't be offended in the slightest. I could always make up my own picture of you in retaliation!

If you want mohammad's image to be made sacred for everyone, we could reserve the right to bring back a long unused english blasphemy law that would make denying Jesus Christ's divinity ILLEGAL and punishable. This law is still valid - it hasn't been applied for centuries though.

You see where this kind of thing can lead to? Any muslim in britain saying that jesus was just a prophet would be sent to jail until they repented.

So I advise you to just accept this kind of thing, get on with your life and stop telling us what images we can and can't show!

If mohammad *is* in heaven, then he can mete out punishment in the afterlife!!! Leave us to get on with our own beliefs here!!!

mohammad's image is sacred to muslims
jesus' divinity is sacred to christians
cows are sacred to hindus
etc etc.

That's the beauty of a secular state; religion is relegated to the home or places of worship, so any religion can practise. Also, no religion is sacred in the public sphere. This is why we have so many people coming to the west to practice their religions without fear.

You respect human beings? Your newspapers are filled with highly offensive cartoons, often aimed at George Bush or jews. But, unlike muslims, non-muslims don't start to demonstrate, burn flags, and send death threats (some even by government officials) to the people who made those cartoons.

Many people in the West do not respect Mohammed. They consider him an evil murderer. They have every right to think so. If you do not agree, make sure your newspapers never ever make a cartoon in which ANY human being is ridiculed. Changes are enormous that there is someone on this earth that loves this person, and would therefore be offended.

Nobody is forcing you to take a look at the drawing. You thus CHOOSE to be offended.

If somebody shoves the picture in my face, I would indeed be offended. Not so much by the drawing, but by the fact that somebody forces me to look at it. If not, then being offended is one's own choice.

That would be fine if the Muzzies would just practice their religion but they have an agenda. More people are realizing this every day.
