Mohammed's image problemThe managing editor of France Soir was fired for re-publishing the 12 drawings. It turns out the paper had been bought by an Egyptian one week ago. Ooops. The newspaper's Egyptian owner designated a replacement, Eric Fauveau, but he refused the job. France Soir's staff printed a statement in its Friday edition, calling Lefranc's dismissal "arbitrary and without grounds." They also urged the owner not to interfere with the paper.

Cox and Forkum (drawing to the left) have a point: Mohammed does have an image problem. However, Mohammed can't complain over a lack of press lately: Other publications in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Iceland and Spain also re-ran the Danish cartoons. The French paper le Monde added their own: A pen writing "I must not draw Mohammed" again and again.
Le Monde, I must not draw Mohammed
Honorable mention (and respect) goes to a paper in Jordan, Al Shihan, printing three of the drawings with this introduction: "What brings more prejudice against Islam, these caricatures or pictures of a hostage-taker slashing the throat of his victim in front of the cameras or a suicide bomber who blows himself up during a wedding ceremony in Amman?". The paper was pulled from newsstands and the editor, Mr. Jihad Momani, was fired and has excused.

Dishonorable mention goes to CNN for brandishing their high double standards: ""CNN has chosen to not show the cartoons in respect for Islam. (Watch the furor caused by cartoons -- 2:48)"". Nice going, CNN. You won't show the 12 relatively innocent drawings - in respect for Islam - but you *will* show a 2:48 minutes video of Muslims burning Danish flags - in respect for whom?

In the "it would have been funny if it wasn't so tragic" department, we have an old story from Leicester, England: Porcelain pigs offend Muslims "Police here in central England seized a collection of porcelain pigs from a house's window sill after Muslims complained that they were offensive." Yeah, I know it's old, but it's still funny - or it would be, if it wasn't so tragic.

Wikipedia has an extensive and thorough article. If you want to see the false and blasphemous drawings which the Danish imams have produced and have showed on BBC and al-Jazeera, there's a nice overview here. You might ask your local imams, why it's "illegal" for an Infidel Dane to show the 12 relatively innocent drawings to Infidel Danes in a small Danish newspaper. And then you can ask them why it's "legal" for an imam to show this, this and this to 1,3 billion believing Muslims on BBC and al-Jazeera. Leave a comment and let me know what your imams have to say.
