1. Let me get this straight
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (11.28.12)
Egypt has sentenced American citizens to death for the crime of using their constitutional right of free speech in America. What do Obama and Clinton have to say about this?
2. Whatever
Sean ,   Phoenix   (11.28.12)
Only in Islam can "slander" mean telling the truth about someone. How can you slander Mohammed by telling the truth? He was a pedophile. He was an Anti-Semite. He was a polygamist. He was a violator of treaty obligations. He was an adulterer. He was a murderer of prisoners. He was in all likelihood a schizophrenic who had auditory hallucinations. Helluvaguy. Muslim men model his behavior quite faithfully; they should be proud.
3. their god is insulted
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (11.28.12)
but he doesn't have power to seek his own revenge? some god!
4. Ah. Yes. And then there is the Blessing and Curse of Mohamed
meir elazar   (11.28.12)
Mohamed's Blessing to man is that men can have FOUR WIVES. And then Mohamed's curse is that man may have FOUR MOTHERS-IN-LAW to constant remind them of all of their faults and failings.
5. The Usual Double Standard
Koose E Mack ,   NY NY   (11.28.12)
Islamists will sentence "infidels" to death for slandering their prophet. However, they are free to insult, criticize, defame, debase, other religions. Who has sentenced them to death?
6. Sae Is *NOT* Symbolic
emanon ,   USA   (11.28.12)
Try telling Salman Rushdie his sentence is symbolic. No, look at what member of this alleged "religion of peace" did in their religion's name over this lousy film. They are serious! Ever hear of suicide bombers? Ever hear of arabs stabbing Israelis because the Israelis are not members of this alleged "religion of peace"? Trust me, there is some nut job that will accept this as a mandate and attempt to carry it out. Problem is, here in the West, we're too civilized to seek revenge should this threat come to pass.
7. Islam and others views.
Mina ,   Cairo Egypt   (11.28.12)
That is s a main problem in Islam, Muslims doe not accept different and opposing views in ART and Politics. How many films were made on JC and not one director was threatened.
8. Just wait till my film comes out
Haim ,   TA   (11.28.12)
THere was this priest, an iman and a rabbi.....
9. Millions of intelligent people insult islam, going to kill
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (11.29.12)
all of them? They need to take their violent cult to the top of a mountain and jump off, make the world a decent place to live. My apologies to the rocks below.
10. more evidence as if we need any
Barney ,   USA   (11.29.12)
of a primitive ignorant society. sentenced to death for a film but not shooting a school girl for wanting girls to be educated, or women traveling, or leaving their homes, or freedom of speech, or gay and lesbian rights, religious rights. etc. G-d help the world if this fanatical cult takes over.
11. #1 Obama? Filmaker was put in prison for practicing freedom
Netanya ,   Netanya   (11.29.12)
of speech in USA and who had him put in prison? Obama!!! If the Americans and liberal left do not see the truth, I don't have any faith that USA will not find itself in the same place as Europe in the near future. Sharia is coming and every time I am in USA I see more hijabs, showing they are there and planning to take over. The Muslims do not live with others, they get to a certain percent and take over, murder and force others to convert, that is the nature of the beast. Just as Lebanon and Bethlehem were majority Christian places, today the opposite is true. Obama has infiltrated even the white house with radical islamists. Obama is a Muslim and is doing a great job at Jihad on USA, along with the blindness and ignorance of the US left.
12. Most of the intelligent world...
Beary White ,   Norway   (11.29.12)
...KNOWS that the islamic ideologi is a dangerous, evil way of living. The islamic goal has NEVER been on the path to peace and freedom. Islam is brainwashed into weak brains, and the leftist people do really NOT see the danger of this cult. It should be banned, and their mosks should NOT be allowed to build in cities or crowded area. PS: for all islamic followers; did you know that the south pole is a holy place for muslims? You should go there dressed as beeing in mekka or medina. Have a nice trip.
13. What do you know about the religion of Islam
sam ,   colorado-USA   (11.29.12)
The first thing that one should know and clearly understand about Islam is what the word "Islam" itself means. The religion of Islam is not named after a person as in the case of Christianity which was named after Jesus Christ, Buddhism after Gotama Buddha, Confucianism after Confucius, and Marxism after Karl Marx. Nor was it named after a tribe like Judaism after the tribe of Judah and Hinduism after the Hindus. Islam is the true religion of "Allah" and as such, its name represents the central principle of Allah's "God's" religion; the total submission to the will of Allah "God". The Arabic word "Islam" means the submission or surrender of one's will to the only true god worthy of worship "Allah" and anyone who does so is termed a "Muslim", The word also implies "peace"
14. Presumably the Floriday based pastor is Terry Jones
Quentin Holt ,   New Zealand   (11.29.12)
Wasnt this the same guy who was ejected from a German church because of a craving for attention? Reminds me of a German who burned Torah's instead of Koran's.
15. Christians fled ME Then West Betrayed
Betrayal ,   Jerusalem Israel   (11.29.12)
Hundreds of thousands of Christians fled the persecutions in the Middle East to western countries only to find those countries throwing open the doors to hundreds of thousands ( millions) of those same Christian hating Moslems who continue to persecute them in the West , they must be feeling totally betrayed by the West
16. #13 Yes complete Submission of thought
#13Brainwashed ,   Jerusalem Israel   (11.29.12)
Islam does mean "submission" complete submission and no one is allowd to think for themselves or think differently or the penalty is death "it means peace" ? It is the opposite of peace as its entire history has been one of war and conquest wherever it appeared in the world , It is all about complete mind and body control and that control to be held always by a priviledged few all throughout history It is a religion of death and mind control nothing more. Most educated Western Moslems know this and either are" Light" secular Moslems or leave it all together.
17. TO 16 more than of rationally
sam ,   colorado-USA   (11.29.12)
I hope you to read with understand about Islam rationally more than that, You are right, there are non-Muslims to Islam and there is no Jews away from Judaism too, should not we generalize
