    This is Freedom of Speech right there. Im amazed that an Iranian newspaper is the one who gets it out of all the muslims in the Arab world. They get to rip Jews and they dont have to kill anyone. By George i think they get it. Well some anyway.

    We could stage a fake riot and act all crazy so they would really think they "got" us. "oh the pain"

    When Kyle's cousin Kyle said he was having trouble concentrating in that dry classroom, Eric Cartman said that maybe he should be sent to concentration camp. Yeah, they went there, and it was distasteful, but it was funny, and bad taste isn't illegal. Let them draw their stupid Holocaust cartoons. I really don't care. When we blow their chunk of desert off this planet, I think Holocaust cartoons will be at the bottom of reasons why.

    Typical that they go after the Jews when it's the Europeans they are angry with. The hatred never ends.

    Avatar, I can't help be curious how you chose the handle "avatar"? It's a Hindu religious term signifying the incarnation of a deity. Each major Hindu deity has many avatars, each of which has many famous stories associated with him or her. All these are of course just considered to be aspects of a single, incomprehensibly complex, God.

    Are you an avatar of a Hindu god or something else?

    Mariner.

    P.S. On topic--I agree with all of you. It's a ridiculous stunt, and the hatred--in both directions--never seems to end.

    An avatar is an incarnation of any diety. Its just the hindu word for it.

    Am I a god? well i think sometimes i think so. Doesn't ever man?

    Seriously though i took it from a computer game. Quite frankly i just really love that game. and yes i knew what it meant before I choose it. it just always seemed appropriate for some reason.

    Speaking of avatars, is this one acceptable on this board? Or am I heading for a beheading with it?
