The Aftermath I

2 comments

While Sepoy has written the obituary of cartoon mania Fu2rman is starting a new alliance for peace but this isn't gonna die soon. Independent has published a chronology of events and I am adding Saudi Arabia's top sheikh to war of words.

*Friday 10, 2006 Saudi cleric would not settle for less than the trial of the cartoonist.
Speaking to hundreds of faithful at his Friday sermon, Sheik Abdul Rahman al-Seedes, the imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, called on the international community to enact laws that condemn insults against the prophet and holy sites. "Where is the world with all its agencies and organizations? Is there only freedom of expression when it involves insults to Muslims? With one voice...We will reject the apology and demand a trial," Al Riyadh, a Saudi daily newspaper, quoted al-Seedes as saying.
As Saudi cleric rejects peaceful retreat I expect a fresh round of violence and frenzy across the globe. Sigh!

  • E Mullah,

    As I think we are both commited to a co-alliance of peace between all religions, I think it is something that a going to be more than just a long process. We may not even see it in our lifetime.

    I hope I am wrong.

    What do you think?

    Is it possible that Muslims and Christians/Westerners will be able to live in peace and harmony in the next half century?

  • There should not be any problem with Muslims/Christians/Jews/others living in harmony.

    They lived in peace in Middle East for many years. All this hype is a recent phenomenon. Many Muslims have migrated to Western countries due to economic deprivation and persecution like Christians migrated to Americas. Muslims should have appreciated this fact that these countries opened their arms and embraced them. If people learn to respect each others rights on both sides I think they can easily live in peace.
