The US Media and Government are doing something to distinguish themselves from their European Christian brothers. The state department spokeman Sean McCormack announced that the Prophet Muhammad cartoon firstly appeared in Demark newspaper and now flooding in media of European countries like France, Italy, were found offensive, after protests raised to boycott the products from the captioned countries in Indonesia, Turkey and other Muslim region.

US is always the main target of terrorists, especially after its war against Iraq. At the time, European countries like France and Germany were against the violent resolution, and sounded as if on the side of Muslim countries. This strategy more or less isolated US and UK which the back up of US for the Iraq war.

It is apparent that European countries except UK are not really hardcore partner of US against terrorism, when European countries like Spain was withdrawing military force from Iraq. Even after the terrorist attack of Spain in 2004 and UK in 2005, there is no pan-European action against the terrorism, other than accusations from individual countries.

Now the European Media and President Chirac is defending for the freedom of speech of individuals, while Bush is pretending to be a sympathy judge. It can be expected that the focus of the Muslim terrorist groups will be shifted to European countries and finally the Europe has to be allies of Bush for his anti-terrorism campaign.

In the early1990s, we are speaking of the clash of civilization by Professor Samuel Huntington, and now it is the same topic. Reciprocation of respect toward one’s culture is the only way of unification, is it really so difficult to respect a culture? Europeans, please show your wisdom and breadth.
