What we learn from the life of the Prophet is that he always turned the other cheek when he was hit or ridiculed by non believers. He typically prayed for those who attacked him. Now where have we read that before?
Anyway, I guess we just have to teach the Danish population the Muhammad sign and then Jyllands Posten can find a reasonable way out of all these awful misunderstandings.
I'm not only joking here. I think it would be a lot easier to deal with other people's cartoons about one's holy figures if one would at least feel respected by them.
When I'm reading stories about the life of the prophet Muhammad to my son Goos (a non baptised white kid attending a catholic school), it always occurs to me how incredibly close islamic and christian religions are. The morals are very similar. The misunderstandings too.
