You no doubt have read about the wave of violence that has erupted throughout the Muslim world over a cartoon published in a Danish newspaper. The violence has spread like a wildfire into Muslim communities throughout Europe as well. The editor of a French newspaper was fired for re-printing the "offensive" cartoon. I am showing two of the cartoons here on The Dark Stuff, not because I am anti-Muslim, or that I agree with the message of the cartoons (I'm not even 100% sure what the original context of the images is). I am showing it because of the enormous hypocrisy of the protesters.
This cartoon has prompted calls from Muslim extremists to kidnap or attack all Europeans in Arab countries, and has prompted a boycott of Danish businesses. The protests are very violent and incendiary. They are full of threats of terrorism against anyone who prints the cartoons -- and calls for the "extermination" of those who "slander" Islam. Here is a collage of photos of the violence around the world.
I wonder how many of these same folks sat back, smoked their pipes and laughed when the following cartoons were printed in the Arab media:
Take a brief visit to the Anti-Defamation League's (ADL) website (www.adl.org) and you will find numerous anti-semitic cartoons that are published on an almost daily basis in the state-run Arab media. I think the word you are looking for is...hypocrisy. Yeah, that's it.
