Remember how that Danish newspaper, the Jyllands-Posten, ran those cartoons that many Muslims felt cast Mohammed in an unflattering light? Well, there’s some Muslims that still haven’t let it go. Four Muslim residents of Sweden were arrested in Denmark when it became known that they were planning a terrorist attack on the offices of the said newspaper.
This is stupid. This happened five years ago. And these men still are so fueled by rage that they feel it necessary to kill people? I have to admit, I don’t understand what motivates the veneration of these guys for their faith. I’m all about respect, but mocking the foibles of organized religion (and there are lots) is cathartic, not to mention side-splittingly funny. I’d try and convey this to these guys, but I’d probably lose my head in the process.
