RELIGION OF PEACE UPDATE: LAWSUIT FAILS
According to the Associated Press, a lawsuit by Muslim groups in Denmark has been dismissed by the Danish courts. Following the publication in February of this year of cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed, seven Muslim groups entered a defamation lawsuit alleging that "the cartoons depict Mohammed 'as belligerent, oppressing women, criminal, crazy and unintelligent, and a connection is made between the Prophet and war and terror.'" The irony that the same plaintiff fail to point out is that the response to the cartoons included "protesters killed in Libya and Afghanistan and several European embassies attacked." In their defense, this, of course, only shows Muslims being belligerent, criminal, and crazy, not the Prophet.
Meanwhile the Iranian-sponsored anti-Jewish cartoon competition is over, with the top three having been chosen. As predicted by the Bystander, (a) they are not funny and (b) no-one cares. Anti-Muslim riots did NOT take place, nor did any killings, maimings, firebombings, or name calling. Israel has not called for Iran to be wiped off the face of the earth, nor called on the world to kill all Muslims. Bummer, eh?
The actual winning cartoons are currently available at the Religious Freaks web site and clicking on the link will clearly confirm the non-funny nature. They are also so stereotypical that they are hardly even offensive - just what you might expect from bigots with no sense of humor.
Maybe it's time for the "Kim Jong Il needs a serious haircut" competition...
