Back in March 22, Slashdot had an a question and answer with Isam Bayazidi, a fellow blogger from Amman, Jordan. Isam answered mostly techie questions but he did metion the recent uproar, protests, and vandalism caused by the depictions of the prophet Mohamed in European newspapers. Isam said:
Myself, as much as I find the cartoons in question offensive, I think that the reaction caused even more damage to Muslims image than what some silly cartoons may do..
Isam said it better than I could ever have.
