Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You seem to have missed the point of my response to Helen, which is satirical in nature.

  • Most Islamic scholars consider the depiction of the Prophet to be blasphemy. Therefore 95% of those who identify as Muslims think it is blasphemy.
  • The Pope declares that contraception is a sin. Therefore 100% of people who identify as Catholic think contraception is a sin.

So I guess we should ban advertising of contraception eh?

I don't think that picturing the prophet as such is the core of the problem here. Just another unfriendly publication making fun of Islam seems to be a more accurate description of the problem. And if this was an isolated incident, it would probably not be a problem at all. It isn't, though. It is one incident in a long row of persecutions and humiliations.
