Bin Laden's latest "message"

In his latest message, Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden voices his displeasure with the European Union over Danish cartoons said to be offensive to Islam.

Of course, never mind that anti-semitic cartoons caricaturizing Jews as having hook noses are common in the world of radical Islam. And, never mind that bin Laden was the mastermind behind the death of 3,000 people at the 9-11 World Trade Center bombings.

Bin Laden apparently also has major issues with Pope Benedict XVI.

Why is it that Christians (and other faiths) are expected to suck it up when we see pictures or television shows of Jesus being ridiculed (such as South Park or Family Guy), or movies where He is depicted as a sinful man (such as The Last Temptation of Christ), but yet the world thinks we should kowtow to the crazies in Islam?

Maybe it's because the world, deep down, knows who the real extremists are and is scared to death of them.
