Gates of Vienna: Swedish Flags are Burning

Gates of Vienna: Swedish Flags are Burning:

"Demonstrators in Lahore, Pakistan, burn the Swedish flag today in protest
against the publication of a drawing of Mohammed."

Not again, I strongly believe a number of things related to this issue. The first of all is that we should be sensitive to each others religious beliefs. Second is that the free expression of ideas is the most important freedom that we have as people. Third and most importantly, we cannot allow teenagers with matches and loud voices on the Arab street to control the media of the west. Honestly they shouldn't even be able to control the media of their own countries - let the adults in their countries do that.
