The New York Times - guardian of liberty and free speech, rushed to the embattled and beleaguered Danish paper that published cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed. "We defiantly defend the right of freedom of speech, and of the press - we will never give in to intimidation from any government or their terrorist proxies!" Times publisher Sulzberger emotionally declared. "A few years ago, when artists depicted the Virgin Mary made out of cow dung, and Jesus Christ dipped in urine, we stood up then, and we will stand up now, in fact, we even think that since the US government funded this Mary and Jesus art, our government immediately fund this one! I am appalled at some papers refusing to print them!"
