I am no Muslim, but here is an easy answer.

It's like asking why one would be offended if a relative is mocked, if his wife is insulted or if his family is ridiculed.

Wouldn't you do anything is something you hold dear is deliberately berated, treated with contempt? Some people are touchy about their country, their flag, their armed forces, for Most Muslims, it's their religion.

Muslims are very sensitive at offenses against their religion, their God. Some take it as their duty to punish the offense.

It's not what the poster meant. Their god is supposed to be that omniscient all powerful being whereas a flag can't defend itself. Where is allah's supposed power? He's just a wuss.

That could be said of ANY God, the God of Jews or Christians too.
Where is the power of Jesus? of Yahweh?
What Yahweh did when millions of Jews were exterminated? Is he a wuss too?

Most Jews and Christians have abandoned their religion, but most Muslims still consider that defending their God from insults is their duty.

Not anymore, but they used too.
Most Jews and Christians these days don't really believe in their religions: the rate of disaffection is huge and reflected by the poor attendence at religious services.
But even then, going to church for many is just motivated by conformism, the need to belong to a group, a cultural reason and not a serious belief in the dogma.
