Muhammad Cartoons

Apart from all of these controversies have been made about those cartoons, this question could be suggested that if there has been a similar issue about some other major religions like Jewry or Christianity or Buddhism, would these justifications about "freedom of expression" work as much as now?! It could be surveyed that have such a cartoon been published about Jesus, Muses or Jhvh or even the Pope?
I think what European Muslims want is the very rights that other Europeans already have, just like Christians, Jews, and non-believers. It seems that European Muslims are addressed by their governors as “Europeans”, just when they rely on those Muslims support!
Europe could make this image correct this time, if its governors want the Individual Rights to be respected in a real manner.

Look in my mirror; Hadi mirror!

I do not know how exactly felt the first human that saw his / her face in a reflexive object that could be water or some polished material. However, I have burnt in a generation whose mirror to see himself / herself is the cyberspace that has brought us unique opportunities to find how we look and how other parts of our live world look.
Hadi Mirror is a mirror, which may not be as polished as a real big one, and I make my endeavor here to bring my live growing world a picture of me and the society I live and grow up in, as close to the real one as I could. Many Iranian youth like me feel that our life style and the situation in which we live have not been reflected to other settlers of the globe since there were always the others who reflected it, not the natives.
