Thousands of Muslims protest cartoon in Norway

2,500 People Protest Muhammad Cartoon in Norway

The demonstrators chanted "God is great" in Arabic and waved placards calling for a boycott of the Dagbladet daily.

On Feb. 3, the newspaper published a photograph showing a man in front of a computer screen with a depiction of Muhammad as a pig. The picture accompanied an article that said users were posting offensive material about Muslims and Jews on the Facebook pageof Norway's security police.

Protesters said they wanted to show Norwegian media how hurtful such images are to Muslims. Islamic law generally opposes any depiction of the prophet, even favorable, for fear it could lead to idolatry.

"We have done nothing to anybody. We want to live here in peace. Norway is our home. Our children live here. Why should they (Norwegian media) hurt us like this?" said Naradim Muhammad, a 43-year-old school teacher who helped organize the demonstration.

Here the Muslims go again, pooping their pants and whining like little toddlers because their feelings have been hurt. I wonder why they don't ever take to the street to protest the thousands of innocent dead their fellow brothers and sisters have killed. I doubt that'll ever happen.

Well the muslims might hate Valentines Day but I love it. My husband and I have been married 23 years today. It's the most romantic day of the year. It will be a day forever in my heart. They will never take that away from me or my husband for we committed our love for each other forever on that day.
