Prophet Mohammed cartoons to be published in book

The cartoons that ignited a worldwide protest for depicting the Muslim Prophet Mohammad will be reprinted in a book by Flemming Rose. Flemming was the culture editor at the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten where the cartoons were originally published in 2006. According to CNN, the book is due out on shelves September 30 and is entitled, “The Tyranny of Silence.”

Good. I’m fine with Muslims but I am not okay with censorship through terrorism.

I wonder if the book will include the additional cartoons that were created by the clerics who intentionally whipped up the controversy. Their ‘cartoons’ were far more offensive than the real ones.

More terrorist attempts to intimidate and curb speech:

“Three terror suspects who were arrested in an alleged al-Qaida plot in Norway were likely planning an attack against a Danish newspaper that caricatured the Prophet Muhammad, Norwegian and Danish police said Tuesday.”
