  Caricatures...Politcal Trouble

First it was Salman Rushdie, with the Satanic Verses, and now it’s the whole country of Denmark.

It seems that there are consequences for offending Muslims. Putting the prophet’s image on paper is not considered acceptable. There are boycotts of Danish goods by Muslim populations in many areas around the world.

Here is a link to the images. If you think this may offend you, don’t connect to the link.

There has been a lot of talk by some who are offended by the images regarding freedom of speech having responsibilities. I would have to agree with the concept. I would think that is a two way street and I would hope that those who are outraged have clean hands. I would also think that spreading a religion has responsibilities too.

I’m in the process of doing a search regarding those clean hands.

1st update:

This is a link to the ADL. There are a few, maybe many cartoons and comments that might be offensive to Jews and even people from the United States.

Here's one of the cartoons:

I'm sure there are some that might be offended
