Personally, I too am deeply offended, not by the cartoons, but by what some priests say in Churches, Synagogues and Mosques. This does not mean that I start burning their effigies, making death threats, burning religious symbols (I refer to the flags that were burnt), intimidating people and dragging them through court.
Why is this behaviour accepted as an appropriate expression of “offence” from Muslims? Papers like Charlie Hebdo had been poking fun at Christianity and Judaism for decades before they decided to give the Muslim faith the same treatment. Don’t Muslims have a sense of humour or proportion?
