Because I don't see the problem with these cartoons published last September in Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten:

Cartoons about Muhammad published in Jyllands-Posten last September

Of course, we're seeing the distinct lack of a sense of humor among the splodeydopes:

The Muslim world's two main political bodies say they are seeking a UN resolution, backed by possible sanctions, to protect religions after the publication in Scandinavia of cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad.

Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, secretary-general of Organisation of the Islamic Conference, said in Cairo on Sunday that the international body would "ask the UN general assembly to pass a resolution banning attacks on religious beliefs".

The deputy secretary-general of the Arab League, Ahmed Ben Helli, confirmed that contacts were under way for such a proposal to be made to the UN.

"Consultations are currently taking place at the highest level between Arab countries and the OIC to ask the UN to adopt a binding resolution banning contempt of religious beliefs and providing for sanctions to be imposed on contravening countries or institutions," he said.

I have to admit, though, I'm interested in seeing Ambassador Bolton turning his mustache loose on the proposal.

Update: For the convienience of the Islamofascists, Michelle Malkin has invited us small fry to trackback to one of her posts about the cartoons. She has posted several times about them; I especially like this one.

Thanks for posting on this topic. The Danish newspaper which published the original cartoons has been forced to apologize. The Brussels Journal blog which has led the reporting of this attack on free speech is now receiving threats. Given the state of free speech in Europe as evidenced by the Italian "prove Christ existed" case, I expect Brussels Journal to be forced to remove the cartoons and their reporting. To guard against that possibility, I have reposted the cartoons and the Brussels Journal reporting thread on my blog. I urge all bloggers who care about free speech to do the same.

Bah, I suppose we could face UN sanctions for ripping on scientology, too. Islamo-fascists take all the fun out of life.

Shame on those naughty danes. And bravo to those brave turbanites standing up for their rights not to be ridiculed. After all, no muslim would ever post belittling cartoons or points-of-view about other religions, would they?
