Bacon and God: Reaction over Mohammed Cartoons

Anti-semitic cartoons are found in the Arab press frequently. I expect it. That being said, I see nothing wrong with cartoons that portray Radical Islam in a terrible light: they should be printed daily by every paper as far as I'm concerned. I do have a problem with newspapers printing cartoons where the main reason is to piss off a certain group. I think a simple cartoon of Mohammed's image fits that definition. If the purpose of the cartoon is to antagonize a group, it shouldn't be in a public newspaper. But I have no problem these types of cartoons appear on blogs:)


  1. What's really funny is that's difficult now to tell the cartoons from reality. I just looked over many pictures from the protests, people waiving signs that said among other things:

    Europe, Take some lessons from 9/11

    Exterminate Those Who Slander Islam

    Europe Will Pay Demolition Is On Its Way


    Behead Those Who Insult Islam

  2. I would be hilarious except for the fact that many of these threats become realities or are based on real stories.

  3. These people are off-the-deep-end, over-the-top nuts.
