Islam the Tolerant

Islam the Tolerant

An enormous furor in the Muslim world continues to grow in response to a couple of Danish cartoons. A few weeks ago some cartoonists in Denmark drew some caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad for a newspaper spread. This is apparently a supreme insult in the world of Islam, so ever since angry Muslims across Europe and the Middle East have been engaged in huge protests, condemning the cartoonists and Denmark in general.

The latest development has apparently been the torching of the Danish embassy in Syria.

As you can tell from my cartoon, I personally find it quite ironic that the Muslims are so offended by the drawings, considering they were, on par, considerably milder than a lot of the hateful artwork that comes out of the Arab world.

Here’s the Wikipedia story on the saga.
