Dear Muslims: Get over yourselves.
Memo to Muslims: I realize you think that cartoon representations of your prophet (and not particularly well-drawn or funny ones at that) are an indefensible and unforgivable crime against your religion. They're not.
Invading a Middle East country on false pretenses, destroying its infrastructure and assuming control of all of its natural resources while killing tens of thousands of its citizens -- that's a crime. Some stupid cartoons? Not so much.
As Bill Maher would say, get over yourselves.
FOLLOWUP: I've heard that the Quran doesn't technically forbid graven images or pictorial representations of the prophet. Can anyone verify this?
