French philosopher defends double standards for religious offenses against jews and muslims

French philosopher André Glucksmann defended today, in the pages of Le Monde, the double standard treatment of the west for offenses against Islam and the holocaust by explaining that an anti-holocaust offense is against a fact and an anti-prophet Muhammad offense is against beliefs.
I think this is a fallacious philosophical argument since behind the reaction of muslims is the fact that the west is too sensitive to what happened to jews in Nazi camps while it is too insensitive to what is happening to muslims in Palestine, guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and Afghanistan !

Mr. Glucksmann, there are facts behind the reactions of muslims and choosing to ignore them is like choosing to ignore the holocaust !
