Which part is fair? the cleric only received a suspended sentence, if some one had burned a copy of the koran he would have been executed.

His incarceration is pending the result of an appeal. What could be fairer ?

What would be fairer is no punishment at all. Blasphemy laws are idiotic. Freedom of speech is the American way.

He waits for his "appeal" while incarerated as do non-muslims in Egypt.

"Cairo's Nasr City court sentenced Ahmed Abdullah and his son was given a suspended sentence of eight years over the same incident, the Middle East News Agency reported. The two were ordered to pay a fine of 5,000 Egyptian pounds ($700). The ruling can be appealed ..."

All religions should be respected, but only one will ultimately survive-Islam.

Do you see the humor of that statement considering you muslims keep blowing each other up by the tens of thousands? Considering that your countries are impoverished and disease ridden? Considering that more and more people every day are turning their backs on islam, the religion of misery and death?

Good luck with that whole 'surviving' thing.

All the errors in the Quran prove that the book - and thus the religion - is not from a god (no god makes mistakes, contradictions, etc. by the hundreds). It has happened before that pagan religions - even strong ones - have succombed to correct info and facts. Islam is still expanding, but is feeling the heat, and many are leaving the religion.
