* CARICATURE REACTION: The caricature crisis initiated an era of rising Islamophobia in the west. However, the reactions displayed by a number of Muslims in response to the crisis, ended up hurting the perception of Islam. Certain goals set by those who perpetuated this crisis reached the desired results. It is wrong to consider Denmark as being anti-Islam. An entire community should not be blamed for an error committed by one. This is what Islam teaches us. Just like how it is wrong to attribute Brevik murdering 90 innocent people as being due to Jesus or Christianity, it is just as wrong to attribute a mistake by a Muslim named Ahmed or Osama or by a Muslim born here to the Prophet Mohammad or Islam.
* RELIGIOUS SCHOLARS WILL FIND A SOLUTION: One careless remark made by a Saudi mufti becomes a headline in a Washington newspaper the following day. During this distressful environment everyone needs to think about what they are saying ten times before they say anything. Careless comments and statements that could support an environment of conflict should be refrained from use.
