Hamas may have told Israel it isn’t looking for another war in Gaza, but it’s clearly desperate to advance its attack tunnels. It’s also delighted to be sowing seeds of discontent and concern among the Israeli public.04:19 13.02.16 | 0 comments
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.
