"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,...

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....

Que veulent ces gens qui insultent la religion, les races, les groupes d'individu, semer la haine et la discorde? Rejeter sur les autres leurs malheurs trouver des coupables à leurs maux. Je suis humaniste et l' Islam pure, est la religion la plus tolérante celle qui est la plus ouverte et la plus respectueuse des autres. Certes il y a des êtres qui détournent les religions mais ce n'est pas une raison d' insulter l'Eternel. C' est une injure grave et une provocation indécente à l'humanité....

Nous citoyens de cette planète bleue n' aspirons qu'à une seule chose c'est la Paix, l'Echange et le Partage....l'Avenir rayonnant de nos enfants et petits enfants dans le respect des religions, des groupes ethniques, de la non violence doit être notre but.

Freedom of speech does not mean to harm anyone, any nation or cause to disrespect & vulnerably attack to cast, creed, practice being followed by any specific faith and belief or for any particular religion, even such freedom does not allow to go beyond moral standard, values and principal.

But we are experiencing that some Countries are constantly showing their disrespect, animosity, persistent hatred, abhorrence particularly with Islamic religion and always issuing provocative speech,...

Freedom of speech does not mean to harm anyone, any nation or cause to disrespect & vulnerably attack to cast, creed, practice being followed by any specific faith and belief or for any particular religion, even such freedom does not allow to go beyond moral standard, values and principal.

But we are experiencing that some Countries are constantly showing their disrespect, animosity, persistent hatred, abhorrence particularly with Islamic religion and always issuing provocative speech, exhibiting & giving the world an opposite & loathing picture of Islam and Its Holy prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), making movies with wrong interpretation, de-characterizing & caricaturing Holy Prophet in print media and in their products.

We the Muslims all over the world condemn & lodged our complaints against such hatred campaign where the religion Islam & reverend character of Holy prophet Muhammad (pbh) has been compromised & ridiculed, is really very disgusting.

Muslim across the globe are protesting and demanding for a stringent action for those who are disrespect Prophet Muhammad (pbh) – No one has the right to disgrace any religion or any particular group of people – The war against Muslims should stop.

There is a regular conspiracy against Islam and Holy prophet Muhammad (peace be upon) to devalue Muslims and their Belief, fueling & devastating Muslims & Islam on different pretext. There is no forum or any institutions who may question these lobby that why they do this?

Considering the recent release of a “hate English movie about Islam & Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and regular provocative publication like Danish cartoons” have inflamed ethnic tensions in some countries.

Muslims all over the world are demanding United Nation (UN) convention to debate on the miss-use of freedom of speech & should urge all members of the states to deal with provocative publication like Danish cartoons and the movies within determined legal frameworks, legislate if laws have not been enacted and take stern action those have been found involved in hatred campaign.

UN an Institution which is chartered & mandated to maintain peace & love among nations, removes threat and suppress any aggression to ensure a permanent peace and killing all such forces cropping into the way of coherence & conformity among the countries, well understanding (friendly environment), & remove if afflicting the principal of equal right and self-determination of people or leading to breach of justice.

Further UN being a custodian of universal peace achieves international cooperation, cares for fundamental freedom for all without distinction the deep seated prejudices such as race, sex, religion & language are eliminated.

We the Muslim are hopeful and looking UN to constitute law and its enforcement among the member countries to maintain peace and tranquility & rein the freedom of speech meaningfully instead provocative approach to stir Islam & or any specific religion.
