Sorry, but what the hell does it mean then? This case is black and white. Either you think people should suffer violence for insulting your religion or you don't.
The case is black and white. Nonetheless it seems to me to be entirely possible to have some sympathy with the Hedbo murderers while at the same time rejecting their actions as abhorrent and inconsistent with Islam. E.g. saying "I can understand why they're upset".

There were three nutters who think they have direct contact with God on Songs of Praise on the BBC yesterday. Archbishop Welby, Cardinal Vincent Nichols and Dr Shuja Shafi - representing the Muslim Council of Britain, and condemning the violence without reservation.
