Islamic Cartoon Riots

I wonder what would happen if Al Jazeera ran a cartoon of Bush and an American oil company executive riding Jesus with a saddle. I'd wager we'd be bombing something right now.

Have you ever bothered to google for anything like that? Its there. You want to see some really sick shit? Look for palestinian cartoons of the Israelis.

I've seen plenty of inflamatory religous caricatures by both Christians and Muslims. Their existence is well known.
That wasn't my point and that's not why embassies are burning. The fact that the Danish MSM published the cartoon is what is enraging the Muslims.

Al Jazeera is as MSM as it gets in the Arabic world. My point was that if Al Jazeera showed a cartoon as equally offensive to Christians, there would be reprecussions. I read the english language version of Al Jazeera about once a week and I have never seen anything like that in their Flash political animated movies.

Nope. Embassies are burning because Danish imam's invented cartoons that where not published in the Danish papers and passed them off as part of the cartoons that were.

I haven't seen the cartoon, but I have heard that it portrayed islamists as violent people.

Umm, is this art imitating life or life imitating art? They are acting out their own cartoon.
