Apparently we aren't the only country dealing with public outrage over malicious cartoons.

Muslims are outraged, leveling bomb threats, death threats, and destroying everything around them (this week) because a Dutch paper ran a cartoon depicting Muhammod (which is already a violation of Islamic law) with a bomb for a turbin.

The European world is standing side by side with the Dutch paper, defending their right to free speech and one German paper even said this:

"We would take their protests more seriously if they weren't so hypocritical. The Imams were completely quiet when Al Jazeera depicted Jews as cannibals eating their young last year."

ZZZZING! Go Germany.[/QUOTE]
