More on Denmark’s Muhammed Cartoons

"First Turkish Paper On The Internet" Zaman Online reports something that I either hadn't heard or hadn't noticed about the Denmark newspaper Jyllands-Posten publishing cartoons depicting Muhammed in an effort to underline free speech rights: namely, that a newspaper covering Christian issues in Norway followed suit and was also criticized for it. The publication of those cartoons were widely criticized by many for reasons reiterated in the Zaman piece; they were believed by some to be a contributing factor to last Fall's riots in Europe. I am also quite fond of the piece of art used to illustrate the article, which I have swiped for this post.
