Here's one I found earlier ...

Gunmen in Gaza are deeply offended, I hear. Poor lambs. I wonder what they think about some anti-Semitic cartoons from Arab newspapers that I came across*. See here.

I've just had a quick look. It looks interesting, particularly the Iran section.

I love the way the BBC have done their very best to not show the cartoons. Bunch of commies.

Tee hee. And this from a corporation that had no qualms showing Jerry Springer: the Opera. It's OK to offend Christians. The worse the BBC can expect is verbal condemnation from Christian Voice. Muslims, though, are another matter.

As licence payers, surely we could politely request that the cartoons be shown?

But the owner of the newspapers that publish the anti-Jewish cartoons you link to are not Jews! The owner of the French newspaper is a muslim.

ajd, it does not matter that the owners are not Jews. What matters is that while anti-Semitic cartoons are perfectly permissible in Arab publications, a little fun at the expense of the long-dead Mohammed is greeted with death threats and demands for apologies. This is rank hypocrisy.
