Hooplah Over Danish Cartoons is Just More of the Same

Radical mullah's rioting because they disapprove of the statements made by others in the Western press? Must be Tuesday.

Seriously, this is nothing new. Remember Salmon Rushdie? Sixteen years ago, we saw almost the same thing after he wrote a novel that the Iranian mullah's decided was disrespectful of Muhammed.

The leader of Hizbullah is even calling on Muslims to be shameful over not executing Rushdie. He blames the free-thinking West for not being afraid enough, because no Muslim woud kill the novelist.

One of my favorite editorial cartoons, Dry Bones, has a nice analysis of this up on his blog.
