There's a problem: it doesn't depend on us. It'd all be fine if we could all cope with the fact that we're mocked at; but the muslims have a different culture and some of them aren't used to coping with that. What's the problem with not coping? Banging is the problem, because they can cause terror.
You can't just come to /. and say: "Grow up, you shouldn't bother with that.". You need to understand that they won't listen to you and that they can effectively attack people because of it, as I see it.
We need to make them see that, indeed, people should control themselves when they're mocked at. On the other hand, you can't just skip over the whole "making see" process and suddenly start showing them Muhammad in a bear suit -- that's just ridiculous. Imagine you're used to never being mocked and, suddenly, without knowing that's possible, or even acceptable, people start stripping your clothes off and laughing, what could happen? Bad things, because you weren't taught how to behave in such a situation.
Many Muslims are in a situation similar to what we went through with Crusades and the like. It's a phase (and they aren't nearly as bad as we were back then, really) -- it's a transition phase and we need to help them go through it; baby steps.
So, you see, I agree with you, just not with the method that was implicit in your text. And this applies to all pseudo-religions, as I, myself, am an atheist-bastard.
