A Small Hit to the Funny Bone

In the continuing Muslim Cartoon Mania, the Detroit Free Press, besides running this great cartoon by Mike Thompson, ran this article called, "Religious groups decry reaction to caricatures". My favorite line is:
"This kind of violence is contrary to the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad," said Dawud Walid, Michigan head of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. "These cartoons should never have been printed, but the Prophet Muhammad said that we should not reciprocate by returning evil for evil. We are to reply to evil only with good."

Imad Hamad, regional director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, said the cartoons were offensive, but "under no circumstances do we accept the harming of any individuals or destroying any property or embassy in any country."
No matter how many times I hear about the peacefulness of Islam, it never fails to make me chuckle. The most honest line in the article is:
Bilal Dabaja, a student at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, said the cartoons only add "fuel to the fire" of stormy relations with the Muslim world. "There is freedom of the press, but there should be limits," Dabaja said.
In other words, "say what you'd like about anything else, but pay tribute to Islam, Dhimmi."

Nuts to that!

You are "free" to say what you want until I object. The hypocrisy is monumental.
