They’re CARTOONS, people! February 4, 2006

Posted by RepublicanWitch in Madness.

A Danish newspaper published cartoons of Muhammed late last year. 

Newspapers in Norway, Germany, France and other European countries picked them up also, and now there’s a storm raging in the Muslim world because of it. 

Ready for it?

Muslims are offended.

No, really. 

I couldn’t believe it either. 

It’s almost unheard of, well, except for this.  And this. This too.  Let’s not forget this.Or this. Or this.Or this.Remember the Buddhas of Bamiyan?  The Taliban found those offensive, as well as nail polish, jewelry, plucked eyebrows, short hair, colorful clothes, sheer stockings, white shoes and high heels. 

And our *cough* esteemed media is refusing to show the cartoons, out of respect for “Muslim sensibilities”.  And, in an effort to downplay what’s really happening, they’re minimizing it by calling it a “row”.  As in “minor squabble”.
