Dear Frank

You reply proves the double standards you apply in this cartoon issue. In your view it's not a big deal to caricature the Prophet but not ok to caricature western sentiments like the holocaust.

My suggestion regarding the Iranian initiative to caricature the holocaust makes liberal westerners like you go bonkers. What happened to the progressive free will of the westerners when it comes to their own sentiment?

Whether it's a tragedy or elation; rational people do not poke fun or disgrace other people's sentiments.
