Spreading the risk, Universalizing the message, Achieving solidarity

Reader comment on item: A Muhammad Cartoon a Day

Submitted by Ron Thompson (United States), Sep 21, 2012 at 22:31

Up to now, a number of countries have been caught off balance and end up playing a confused defense, one by one. The US 'yesterday with that powerful little film of satire, France today with the Charlie Hebdo cartoons, some other country tomorrow because of another bold individual or small group.

But a regular publication strategy as suggested by Pipes would spread the risk, universalize the message, and show a global solidarity vs the intimidation and violence of an Islam that has no other way to compete for attention and a place in the modern world.

Let's hope it happens.
