Your Irregular Danish Cartoons Update


* The following are a few signficant items related to the worldwide violence and political turmoil that can be traced back to the publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammed last Fall by Denmark's Jyllands-Posten newspaper.

* Only one signficiant item this time, and one that should have been up on Monday. Boing Boing has a succinct, solid write-up on Pakistan banning access to blogs that host caricatures of depicting the Prophet Muhammed, including efforts like the webcomic "Jesus and Mo." (above) Those sites were deemed "intellectual terrorism" and according to the piece the Pakistani government plans to pursue legal measures against them internationally.

* The Brussels Journal is breaking news of the U.N. report on the matter, not officially released.

* Two resignations: the Swedish Foreign Minister Laila Freivalds; a Church in Wales magazine editor.

* I can't tell if this one is significant or not: Prince Charles speaks out in Cairo.

* What does Billy Bragg think about all this?
