"No one has the right to disrespect any religion or any particular group of people."
YOU ARE WRONG. THIS PETITION IS RIDICULOUS.
People can say what they want in a democracy - its called FREEDOM OF SPEECH! as you are free to believe in whatever you want so are people free to say what they want. If you want respect, show the same respect you want to others even if you don't agree!

My guess is that the people signing this petition does not understand the importance of free speach. Or they just don´t like democracy.

Im sorry but i think this is very contradictory... U say to show respect even if u dont agree, but telling people what they are doing is wrong and ridiculous isnt really respecting what u dont agree with..and what democracy are we talking about here? Because if people have the right to free speech, then others should have the right to protest and demostrate what they believe in.. Isnt all that part of 'democracy'? If they want to sign this petition that is their free choice and telling them...

If they want to sign this petition that is their free choice and telling them they shouldnt do that makes us just the same as those who oppose democracy.. Dont get me wrong, i am completely against hate and violence, but i do think that respect for peoples beliefs is important, without it, we will never be able to live together in peace just as history keeps proving to us time and time again..

Sabah: I will let Ovgum answer about her phrasing, but just want to ask you: When you talk about respect to other peoples beliefs, do you think that should be controlled by law? Or more direct, do you support freedom of speech or not?

And as for living together in peace, I think the only way to do that is for the world to become more secular and embrase science and reason instead of religion. As history keeps proving, religion is the cause of most conflicts. Can you name a war started over which atheist group believe in god the least?

Speaking your mind (also on religion)=ok. Physical violence=not ok. Throwing democracy in the trashbin by censorship (of youtube for instance)=not ok. Do you understand the difference? Do you agree?

'Because no one has the right to disrespect any religion or any particular group of people.' .... Yes they do have every right to disrespect any religion or any particular group of people. That's just the way it is. You have every right to be offended, but you don't have the right to censor others just because you're offended.

Sabah, you have clearly not understood what I am saying. I do not want to censor the petition, I just argue against their pathetic demands. And yes, freedom of speech should apply to everyone equally, and it also does in most western countries. We will see what happens with the French case with the topless pictures, but the fact is that there was nothing stopping them from publishing them, they are still being published in newspapers, and if taken to the higher courts the publisher will be...

But yes, also western countries should be criticized when doing something wrong, that is how democracy is upheld.

Hi Sabah! I would be repeating Tobias with the things I would say to your first message so I am going to try and disdain from that. "No one has the right to disrespect any religion or any particular group of people." Yes they do as it is called freedom of speech and they are Wrong to say that. Agree?

This petition is ridiculous not because it is religious but because of it's nature - because where does it end? then with this logic atheists can petition to block religious content which is offensive to reason and facts, and perhaps cows will petition to block steak houses and butchers in search results... spreading ideas like this as if it is ok will come back to limit people's freedom in many different ways! Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with what that fool did or what he is saying,...

Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with what that fool did or what he is saying, but let people criticize and there will always be someone that is offended... But may be people will also reconsider their stance and their beliefs through criticism...

last but not least - democracy - or liberty - or freedom - or whatever you want to call it does EXIST - at different levels for different societies depending on their collective consciousness and will and I am grateful to live in such a society. While democracy is not perfect, it is an IDEAL to strive for exactly the end goal you mention - peace. All should be criticized for hypocritical and unequal treatments whether it is a western nation like France or some other nation like Saudi arabia...

The only difference is that in France there will be justice because of a judicial system based on democracy however in many other nations with anti democratic systems there would be no justice....

In my mind, this should be nothing new to a Muslim, if you always try to read your Quran. Even if you cannot read the Arabic text it could be in your local language, read it. If you read the Holy Quran, this is what ALLAH says: “They intend to put out the light of ALLAH with their mouths. But ALLAH will bring HIS light to perfection even though the disbelievers hate (it)” Quran (Sura 61:8).
HE (ALLAH) it is who has sent HIS Messenger (Muhammad PBUH) with guidance and the religion of truth...

But ALLAH will bring HIS light to perfection even though the disbelievers hate (it)” Quran (Sura 61:8).
HE (ALLAH) it is who has sent HIS Messenger (Muhammad PBUH) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islamic Monotheism)to make It victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the oneness of ALLAH and in HIS Messenger, Muhammad SWAWS) hate (it). Quran (Sura 61:9).
Now fellow Muslims, the verses above are enough proves why people from the other side of the divide behave the way they are behaving. So let us not overwhelm ourselves with grieves, though it is painful and disheartening the manner in which the disbelievers portray or insult our beloved Prophet, Muhammad (PBUH). I know matter of this nature requires retaliation, to fight back with all we can, but the question that ruing my mind is; should this fight back be in a violent posture? In my view, the answer is NO. What we could do as true believers is firstly to ask ALLAH continually to bestow peace and blessing upon our beloved Prophet, Muhammad (SWAWS) till the day of Recompense. Secondly, we must strive to acquire Islamic knowledge because you can’t worship the True LORD if you don’t Know him. We must also do our best as parents to give our children the best of Islamic education so as to save them from falling prey to these nonconformists of Islamic Monotheism, these beasts. May ALLAH save us from our enemies, the Masihl Daja and its compatriots. AMEEN…..
