It's insane. My question is regarding this issue, and I posit the same thing to fundeMENTALists of every creed when this kind of thing happens, is - if your faith is so fuckin' absolute and unshakeable, then why do you get flustered and go beserk at the slightest provocation. Seem's to me that if it takes so small a thing to rattle you then perhaps your faith ain't all its cracked up to be.
I think when people have said there's a political agenda to this they are right. It's interesting to see that various Muslim speakers in the UK have spoken out against this very quickly and very strongly which is fairly encouraging. After all, it's not exactly the best PR in the world for Islam as a fair and peaceful faith.
