I've just finished reading "The Looming Tower", which spends quite some time discussing some of the more radical interpretations of the Islamic faith. I think, if I'm interpreting things correctly, that the blasphemy question comes from creating an idol in Mohammed's name. At least that was my first thought when I read the original story. For example, in Egypt, Muslims aren't supposed to have statues in their homes because those can be worshiped as idols.

I'm not saying it's right as far as human rights; I'm just trying to figure out why they think the way they do so I can understand. I don't think any of us will get anywhere until we have some sort of understanding of where the other is coming from.
