Daily human rights violations by dictators more offensive to the prophet than cartoon

"But I find the daily human rights violations by our dictators to be more offensive to the memory of the prophet's life than a few cartoons ever could be." - Mona Eltahawy

The author continues....

And let's be really honest here, haven't some Muslims been all too willing to confirm the stereotype of violent Islam with their calls to behead the cartoonists and to sever their hands? Much more than the cartoons, they malign the message of tolerance and patience under hardship that the prophet preached and that I and millions of Muslims revere.

This is not a clash of civilizations but a battle between the extremists - Muslims and non-Muslims alike - and the rest of us who refuse to allow them to speak for us.
