The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it; if you can’t ignore it, top it; if you can’t top it, laugh at it; if you can’t laugh at it, it’s probably deserved. - Russell Lynes

Freedom of speech necessarily means that people will be offended by its exercise. It makes no sense to guarantee free speech and then demand "voluntary" speech codes designed to take all of the potentially offensive speech out of the marketplace of ideas. Under those circumstances, what freedom does anyone have left? Those who want to exercise speech now have to meet everyone's threshold of offense, which in a global community means 6.5 billion standards. - Ed Morrisey Quotes regarding current cartoons

The first human who hurled an insult instead of a stone was the founder of civilization. - Sigmund Freud

A partial freedom is not freedom at all - Flemish saying

"One striking feature of these events is the remarkable absence of sensible dialogue"

"We recognise that the cartoons were offensive to many Muslims, but offence and blasphemy should not be threshold standards for curtailing freedom of expression."

Another WashingtonPost quote[edit]

I've got another WashingtonPost quote for you:

A Washingtonpost-ABC poll found that 46% of Americans have a negative view of Islam, 7% higher than in the tense months after the Sept. 11, 2001, when Muslims were often targeted for violence.

I just fixed the link, so you can read/see the whole story.

Sorry for not signing. The link works. Raphael1 03:11, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
