    Quoting from the above link:
    “While religious tolerance is surely better than religious war, tolerance is not without its liabilities. Our fear of provoking religious hatred has rendered us incapable of criticizing ideas that are now patently absurd and increasingly maladaptive. It has also obliged us to lie to ourselves repeatedly and at the highest levels about the compatibility between religious faith and scientific rationality.”

    Let’s roll…

    Only in todays climate can one be thought of coward or nave if he advocates for calmness.
    That however, shouldnt deter anyone to call it straight and say to both sides, Calm it.
    Nobody who read or follow what the cartoon story did can believe that the editors were somehow acting merely on freedom of expression thought. There is more to it than theyre saying publicly.
    There is anti Islamic climate and I just dont see how it helps the Danish society.
    If we follow as some Christian-extremist are calling (let each side totally withdraw to their territories). That would mean among other things:
    -The Muslims from South Africa to Indonesia thinking locally, buying locally, severing anything EEU (from water to Italian cloth to Danish Cheese).
    -Looking to China, Korea, Malaysia & else where for big price items (Appliances, cars).
    -EEU cutting their tourism destination in more than half (Indonesia, Thailand, Half of Africa as many countries have large Muslim population).
    -Severely restricted water & over flights rights.
    Im not sure if either side is doing their homework before calling for escalations.
    Just dont get it.
