When Charlie Hebdo published a cartoon mocking Mohammed, there were all sorts of possible responses. Ignoring it could have been one. A strongly worded letter may have been another. Unfortunately, someone decided to go with the option of loading up some machine guns and shooting the shit out of a whole bunch of people.
It seemed a tad disproportionate and any sympathy I had for those who were offended by the cartoon quickly dried up. I think if Islamic fundamentalists want to win people over they really need to be a bit more creative and thoughtful in their responses.
I believe in this instance they should have made Virgin Mary sex dolls. Just imagine it. All the Christians would have been horribly offended and then everyone could have agreed that mocking others' beliefs is not very nice.
Then everyone would live happily ever after... or am I being too optimistic?
