Newspapers, stop publications insulting to Islam -NOW!!

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Submitted by RPaine (Australia), Feb 7, 2006 at 19:50

If newspapers are really so concerned with sensitivity to Islam that they won't publish the Mohammad Cartoon series I, perhaps these newspapers should also discontinue other practices that are offensive to Islam.

-No more lingerie ads should be allowed since we know Islam prefers their women covered up.
-No ads for BrokeBack Mountain for obvious reasons.
-No ads for cars that have women drivers.
-No articles on homosexuality or free love.
-Dump the alternative lifestyle personal ads too.
-Get rid of all beer/alcohol advertising
-The same newspapers may want to fire all writers that are Jewish because Muslims should not have to suffer the indignation of seeing a Jewish name in print.

The insensitivity argument has no end, does it?

Therefore I conclude that every media outles in the West should publish the cartoon and every government should stop appeasing with appologies. Wake up!! Don't give the Islamist legitimacy by pandering to them, people! That's what they really want, need.
