    The Face of Mohammed cartoons

    Here are a couple links to blogs which have the now infamous Face of Mohammed cartoons:

    Strasser: By the way, the murder of the couriers, what has been done?
    Renault: Realizing the importance of the case, my men are rounding up twice the usual number of suspects.
    Heinze: We already know who the murderer is.
    Strasser: Good. Is he in custody?
    Renault: Oh, there's no hurry. Tonight he'll be at Rick's. Everybody comes to Rick's.

    Oh boy! This is a sure fire controversy starter and likely to offend our Muslim members.

    Captain, get set for a barrage of hateful PMs!

    I take no position on this issue!

    I don't get why France and some other European countries would want to republish the Danish cartoons, which are downright offensive to the Muslim community and were sure to create quite a stir ... Stupid, stupid move in my book. I'm all for freedom of the press but there should be some minimum standards to be observed, just like in any other business.

    Governments are not reprinting the cartoon, newspapers are. I'm sure the governments in those countries are not happy about this, but do you honestly think we should have standards as to what a newspaper can say? We would have newspapers filled with blank pages for fear of offending someone.

    Where did all those Danish flags come from?

    Blogger and columnist Michelle Malkin continues her coverage of the controversy over the cartoons:

    THE "INTERNATIONAL DAY OF ANGER"

    I have one question...how did the fanatics in the Muslim world quickly get their hands on so many Danish flags so that they could trample on and burn them? I know that they must keep on hand a good supply of American flags destined to be trampled on and burned all the time, but it's impressive how quickly the supply of Danish flags expanded to meet the growing demand.

    I think I'll see if I can find a Danish flag today. But instead of burning it, I'll be displaying it outside my house.

    I've heard this morning that the situation is kinda ironic as some Palestinian-Arab newspapers have used cartoons to mock Israel, yet they get outraged when the same is done to them.

    Very dumb cartoon...and nothing to do with free press

    Alright, so we have managed to spark geopolitical tensions in the Middle East once again. But this time it was those 'violent' Danes, not the world's favorite whipping boys, the Americans, that managed to stir up a hornets nest.

    I consider myself to be secular but this whole controversy just displays the racial tensions that are ever present in Holland and Norway. Europeans are generally racist and some countries are worse than others. But the facade of the Dutch living in harmony with their Muslim neighbors is utter crap.

    One other thing: this whole fiasco just shows how insensitive and hypocritical the press can be when dealing with controversial issues. In most countries, you would land in jail if you had a cartoon of the Jewish Holocaust, and rightly so. But why don't we poke some fun at Mohammed? All in the name of freedom of the press? Please, give me a break!

    Board Stiff,

    Obviously you are not very in touch with the Montreal scene, or reality. There is a fairly legendary Muslim hobbyist whose exploits in Montreal were recently discussed on the other Board by Doc Holliday. He has spent more money hobbying in Montreal than you will probably make in your life. I would like to see you tell him to his face that he is not a "true Moslem [sic]". I will also make sure to mention to him that according to you, he is a fake "Moslem."

    Actually, our friend just posted a review on the other Board, first time in about 4 years.

    Unhappy

    South Park has made fun of Jesus or God.
    How many threats?
    How many burned flags???
    It seems to me that some people in some religions are rather intolerent.
    Many cartoonist,humorist,tv shows ect routinely parody the Pope.
    Once again how many protestations????

    Doc is French Canadian. I said that he was talking about another hobbyist who is a Muslim.

    The hypocrisy of the Arabs

    One can question whether the Danish newspaper used good judgement in publishing these cartoons, though I find most of them to be in line with normal standards of editorial cartooning in countries that enjoy true free expression. I think the real importance of the cartoon controversy is that it exposes the extreme hypocrisy of the Arab world about the issues of free expression, prejudice and intolerance, as pointed out by the Anti-Defamation League:

    ADL Statement on Danish Cartoons Depicting Mohammed

    "...What has been overlooked in the controversy is the fact that despicable anti-Jewish caricatures appear daily in newspapers across the Arab and Muslim world. While invoking the supposed "freedom of the press" in their countries, Arab and Muslim leaders have refused to take any action to stem the drumbeat of anti-Semitism in widely circulated newspapers, many state-sponsored. Indeed, leaders of regimes such as Egypt and Saudi Arabia have virtually ignored appeals from the United States and Jewish organizations to put an end to incitement in their media, excusing it in the name of "freedom of the press." One would hope that leaders of Arab and Muslim countries would turn all of the anger being aimed at the European press into a larger lesson for their own people about the power of images..."

    Here are examples of the kind of anti-Semitic and anti-American propaganda that appears everyday in the Arab media:

    Arab Media Review: Anti-Semitism and Other Trends July - December 2005 Saudi Arabia
    Strasser: By the way, the murder of the couriers, what has been done?
    Renault: Realizing the importance of the case, my men are rounding up twice the usual number of suspects.
    Heinze: We already know who the murderer is.
    Strasser: Good. Is he in custody?
    Renault: Oh, there's no hurry. Tonight he'll be at Rick's. Everybody comes to Rick's.

    Well, considering my perspective (those who read my Hammas response), I can only roll my eyes on this. EVERY major religion gets this kind of jabbing, ribbing, and sometimes outright insults. BUT, what sets apart the animals from the civilized is the RESPONSE. It's time to get a thick skin and drop the PC crap.

    I've read the article that started this whole mess. One must get the full context before one goes "Jihad ape-s**t". Did I find the image insulting...well...it did make me cringe a bit. I didn't like the insinuations but I can understand what the article is about...using religion to advance a philosophy of anger, violence and hate. It's tame considering how Jesus (peace be upon him) has been treated by liberal, secular-humanist movements.

    Do I like the response. NO. Burning Danish flags, making threats, and rioting is way overboard. I admire the west in its rights of free speech and press. It's something my former homeland should have. If something is offensive, there are more peaceful, civil and open-dialogue responses that can be taken.

    Remember filmaker Theo Van Gogh who was killed a few years ago because he made a film critical of Islam's treatment of women? The man sentenced in the crime had no remorse whatsoever and even had the gaul to look at Theo's mother and call his son an infadel.

    Remember an author named Salman Rushdie who had a contract placed upon him by Iran? Several of Salman's friends (who worked on the book) were either killed or injured in assasination attempts.
