The Sistine Chapel still stands.

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by Tina (United States), Feb 7, 2006 at 11:42

If Jews were to act the way the Muslims are acting, the Sistine Chapel would have been burned down a long time ago. It shows a picture of Michelangelo's idea of God, and such representations are forbidden to Jews.

Remember that the Muslim Taliban also blew up the Buddhists statues in Afghanistan. I don't remember protest parades in the Arab street about that.

Not to mention the vile stuff the official Muslim governments have on their official TV stations and the vile cartoons about Jews, plus the killing of innocents that never gets a protest from the Arab street until an Arab family's wedding was bombed accidentally in Jordan.

The cartoons can be seen on the Little Green footballs website and they are not insulting nor obscene.
