The West should treat Islam the way it wants Islam to treat the West

Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi said so.
Indeed. We want an open and free debate and exchange of views - without violence, without threats against our citizens, and without threats to wipe Israel off the map. I haven't noticed Westerners using terrorism against Muslims - or indeed
He also said "Muslims for their part had to avoid "sweeping denunciation of Christians, Jews and the West". As my post a few days ago on the anti semitic cartoons, there is still some way to go on that one.
Mr Abdullah is a moderate - that's why he shut down a newspaper that now said it made an "editorial oversight" for publishing the cartoons, and he declared that possession of them was now banned.
That's the difference - so Malaysians, particularly the 40% who are NOT Muslim, here are the cartoons. Judge for yourselves - after all, they are not meant to offend you and I think you are all adult enough to make your own mind up.
