"If you're angry at Bush I get it because we elected him in a democracy, kind of, but listen he was President twice, and so if President Bush attacks Iraq and you say he equals the USA I think that's a fair point. Now look he doesn't because at this point 70% of Americans don't like Bush but none the less you could say Bush equals USA. You could say President Obama elected in your democracy he does drone strikes, we don't like the drone strikes, but Obama equals America. You can say that I get it. But here's what you can't say..."

Even if you are not Muslim, you still can do every thing but drawing Mohammed (PBUH) you would be insulting and desecrating Islam and Muslims. Do you think that 1.5 billion Muslims are stupids who missed your point and you are the only one who figured it out , well, let me tell you this. you will never understand why Muslims got angry over that movie because you are not Muslim.

Bin laden does not equal Islam.
The only reason why people are reluctant to make fun of your prophet is because of the shitstorm it creates. A lot of people make fun of Jesus, God, Buddha etc, and we're able to say 'hey, Jesus/God/Buddha is a bro, he'll be able to have a laugh along with us'. If someone says something unacceptable, we're able to say 'Hey, Jesus/God/Buddha is a bro, he's not gonna throw a tantrum just because someone insulted him, so we shouldn't either'. Being offended does not legitimize violent reactions.
