    Arab-muslim You are not comparing like with like. The Danish cartoons controversy related to the right to satirise a historical/religious figure. Most people in the West find that legitimate. As I Jew I would have no problem in principle if someone were to satirise some of our biblical figures though I admit I might be offended by it. There is all the difference in the world between satirising dead historical/religious figures (or live political or other leaders) and mocking the suffering of a people. A better analogy would be say, comparing the holocaust with some example of Arab or Muslim suffering - perhaps someone joking about the current bombings in Iraq or the massacres of Muslims during the late 1940's in India. Let me add that I would be asahmed to laugh at the undoubted sufferings of the Palestinian people though we would probably not agree on their caue. This seems such a clear distinction that I worry that you fail to see it.
