The Furor Over Cartoons

These cartoons have caused the Muslim world to become enraged. Saudi Arabia and Syria have recalled their Denmark ambassadors. Gunmen held offices at the European Union in the Gaza Strip … etc.

Sigh.

These cartoons were a silly and knowingly insulting stunt. Still, it has brought a point to head: the Islamic world can burn the American flag without reprisal, and so should the West be able to print cartoons about Mohammed.

The free exchange of ideas should never be a threat to the truth, no?

There is no peace without freedom of speech. Sometimes there is no peace with it either.
