Source:"The apology and retraction are not enough," Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed told Reuters. "They should understand the sentiments of Muslims and think 101 times before publishing news which hurt feelings of Muslims."

Yea...Right. It looks like the Muslims can dish it out, but they cannot take it. They are big religious babies that cannot take responsibility for their actions and must constantly push blame onto others.

I tell you what, Muslim people of the world, we will make sure that to not hurt the feelings of Muslims, if you make sure to stop hurting the feelings of Americans first. I wonder how long it will take them to turn down that offer.

We should not allow Muslim leaders to push blame onto Newsweek, nor should we allow the people who incited the riots and participated in the riots to rename nameless and hidden. The Muslim leaders will do everything they can to push the current perception of Muslims being unable to control their actions because of religious reasons, because they ENJOY and abuse the status quo.

We must not allow the current news establishment restate the status quo without challenge. Muslims are living free and voting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Those examples alone should have been enough to shatter the myth that Muslims are not capable of normal human endeavors and are controlled by their religious passions instead of their minds.

My thoughts have been heavily influnced by these posts.

Great thoughts, as always, cube. I also liked your Judges post, as well as your 24 body count. Thanks also for the lead on the 24weblog.

I think the part that you are missing is that the retraction is an obvious concession to US government outrage over this article. And for the many Muslim countries we currently occupy it only confirms their suspicions that we hate their religion. I think you would have noticed a bigger reaction in Iraq if they didn't do this everyday anyway.

Yea i do not really subscribe to that idea.

Newsweek had retracted information before the whitehouse said anything, if i remember correctly. They did not retract it to make the Us government happy they did it because their compeitiors would keep tearing into them until they did it.

Kinda like CBS with the memo story, they only thing news networks like better than a politica scandal is a scandal with their compeitors.
