Listening to the radio this morning I heard interviews with people in muslim communities airing their views. I know many muslims are horrified by what has happened (in case you do not know, click here for for the BBC news website), but there are a number that have voiced their opinion that either the terrorists were correct in murdering people who drew cartoons of Muhammad and made jokes about Islam or others who are indifferent claiming they bought their death upon themselves.
The enormity of the event and it's implications is still reverberating around the world. The level of censorship demanded by Islamic extremists is ridiculous in this day and age. I don't know what the backlash is going to be and I do place the blame on religious fundamentalism, of any creed. Faith is fine until it impinges upon the rights of others. If you want to live in countries where your rights are respected, you have to in turn respect the rights of others, regardless of faith, regardless of their opinion, regardless of their life choices and how they express themselves.
Here is a link to a series of cartoons making commentary on the attack.
