muhammad never existed. he is a made-up character. In addition, islam is not a religion but a sick cult.

Is depicting the severed heads of Jesus and Muhammad, 2 great leaders and icons of two of the three monotheistic religions really the best way to "protest all organized religions". Seems to me that Hans is an extremely unimaginative "artist". Maybe I should stage an opera showing the severed head of his parents as a protest against his "artistic vision". But then, I would probably be accused of being a terrorist.

The Roman Catholics in the U.S. are planning an invasion of the Christian Scientists? They've got Tom Cruise? Wait, I forgot, we don't go to battle anymore over Religion of Race. Gee we're nice people all living here together.

And what gives you the right to say that it is a cult? Dont christianity started the same way? Wasn't Christ a jew? The moment we start to understand that everybody has the right to believe in what makes him or her happy without questioning what the other might belive in, we are going to start to act like humans. Remember what the Delphi Oracle said in old Greece? Know yourself and you will know God. Name him/her/it the way you want, the pleasure is yours!

It was a foolish person who decided to create this problem. An opera using severed heads of religious figures. How stupid that man was ! He wasn't a Muslim.

And now, despite this stupidity, Muslims are again being blamed !

The lunatics of the west are responsible. And I am a Christian.

I completely support those Muslims who point out that much of this bad feeling is being engineered by stupid men.

look. if these muslims don't like it, they don't have to go and watch it. That's free speech, a concept totally alien to Moslems. Especially that idiot in saudi! How does a Mozart opera in Berlin affect him?
