Did Christians Pilot Any Planes Into Buildings?

COPENHAGEN - The Danish newspaper that first published caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad infuriating Muslims worldwide previously turned down cartoons of Jesus as too offensive, a cartoonist said on Wednesday. Twelve cartoons of the Prophet published last September by Jyllands-Posten newspaper have outraged Muslims, provoking violent protests in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Forgive me if I am wrong, but cartoons, especially political cartoons usually reflect the sarcastic view on the current events in today's world. So this Dannish newspaper had done so, by depicting how teachings of Muhammad affect the minds of certain people - which a valid point, and should be taken as such. Let's not forget - it wasn't Christians who flew commercial jets into buildings on 9/11, it wasn't Christians who used children of Beslan as human shields, it wasn't Christians who blew up innocent people in London, Madrid, Rhyad, and dozens of cities around the world. It's not Christians who attempt to destabilize Iraq by perpetrating attacks against forces of freedom, and Iraqi civilians every day ... So why is the latter (refusal to publicize Jesus cartoon) even an issue?; not to mention the Holocaust cartoon contest announcement yesterday from Iran.

By the way, in the photo above, Bangladeshi Muslim supporters of 'Islami Chatra Morcha', an Islamic group, burn a Danish flag in Dhaka - disecrating a Christian cross on Danish flag, if we are going to go into issue of blasphemy...
