Muslims are very strict.
In the Holy Bible, it says that believer shouldn’t make or worship
graven images. The Holy Koran says the
exact same thing. The only real
difference comes in the application.
Muslims have so much respect for their god and prophets that they don’t
allow anyone to make any artistic representations of them at all.
Images of the prophet Muhammad are not acceptable in the Muslim faith, but just because one religious group is offended by something doesn't mean that they can impose their belief system on others. Countries with free press and freedom of speech should be allowed to desecrate the symbols that any group hold holy. It is never right to respond to cartoons with violence, no matter who they depict.
