Mohammed Cartoons Update

The most sensible commentary on the cartoon fiasco that I have seen thus far, from the Guardian. I particularly liked Gary Younge's bit, but both are well-written and worth reading, though they ostensibly express different viewpoints: in fact, they differ only in whose responsibility they emphasize; I agree more with Younge's emphasis.

Meanwhile, it appears that my comment about the disengenuousness of the editors/journalists involved in this supposed battle to preserve free speech was actually supported by some facts that have come to light: apparently Jyllands Posten was sent some cartoons by a cartoonist which were potentially offensive to Christians. Guess what they did? They refused to publish them, because .... they were offensive. These guys are not the ones one would want defending the bastions of free speech, which do need defending. If you have any doubts, read this.
