the Muslims are insulted

I heard a woman's voice on the radio saying "no one has a right to insult our prophet". Wrong. Everyone has the right to draw a picture. Even if you don't like it. You may consider it blasphemy but I don't. Your belief has no power to control others. It can only influence YOU.

My concern for your happiness influences me. I do not insult anyone intentionally, but people are often insulted by the things I say and do. Is that my problem?

If you kill people or burn buildings because you are insulted, what kind of person does that make you???? What is right and what is wrong? What would Muhammed say???
