The funny pages

Michelle Malkin has been coverning the international brouhaha over some cartoons of the prophet Muhammad published in a Danish newspaper a few months back. Groups of militant muslims dislike the cartoons and are threatening retaliation, calling for a Danish boycott, suicide bombings and the execution of the cartoonists. Interestingly, as Michelle points out in her column, the cartoons were published by the newspaper in order to make "a vivid editorial point about European artists' fear of retaliation for drawing any pictures of Muhammad at all." I think they succeeded. Michelle has more on this story here and here.

Considering the uproar over these cartoons, I'd hate to see what these groups would do if a drawing of Muhammad was stained with elephant dung or placed in a jar filled with urine. Christians are wimps in retrospect.

Support Denmark.
