Jyllands Posten Secular Fundamentalist

Global Civility
"The Muslim Action Committe or MAC, has been set up by over 400 Islamic Scholars of the United Kingdom in response to the global concern in the western media and government victimising and provoking the Muslims by producing blasphemous cartoons, depicting our beloved Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as a terrorist. As a result, deeply offending the global Muslim community."

Danish paper rejected Jesus cartoons
: "In April 2003, Danish illustrator Christoffer Zieler submitted a series of unsolicited cartoons dealing with the resurrection of Christ to Jyllands-Posten.

Zieler received an email back from the paper's Sunday editor, Jens Kaiser, which said: 'I don't think Jyllands-Posten's readers will enjoy the drawings. As a matter of fact, I think that they will provoke an outcry. Therefore, I will not use them.'

The illustrator said: 'I see the cartoons as an innocent joke, of the type that my Christian grandfather would enjoy.' 'I showed them to a few pastors and they thought they were funny.'

But the Jyllands-Posten editor in question, Mr Kaiser, said that the case was 'ridiculous to bring forward now. It has nothing to do with the Muhammad cartoons.

'In the Muhammad drawings case, we asked the illustrators to do it. I did not ask for these cartoons. That's the difference,' he said. 'The illustrator thought his cartoons were funny. I did not think so. It would offend some readers, not much but some.'

The decision smacks of 'double-standards', said Ahmed Akkari, spokesman for the Danish-based European Committee for Prophet Honouring, the umbrella group that represents 27 Muslim organisations that are campaigning for a full apology from Jyllands-Posten.

'How can Jyllands-Posten distinguish the two cases? Surely they must understand,' Mr Akkari added. Meanwhile"

JP want to keep their readership happy by running articles with associated cartoons that their readers might find interesting, whilst at the same time not showing images which might identify them as against the prevailing views of the readership.

The idea of a free press is not that all publications have a neutral point of view, it is that by allowing all points of view, the overall picture is seen.

It would seem that JP's views are entirely consistent with the Christian orientation of their readership in that they believe, as most Christians do, that Christianity is a superior religion to say, for example, Islam. They wouldnt be Christians if they didnt believe that, would they? Consistent with this is that they think Islam inferior, presumably due to the direct exhortations to violence from Mohammeds own mouth in the later expositions of his doctrine, compared to the ideals of non-retaliation in their own creed.

You are absolutely right to point out that this was a secular extremists march, as the overriding theme was that "all religions are the same / equal"

Islam is not here to be equal, is it?

However, you are equally free to:

1) Not buy Jyllands Posten
2) Set up your own publication for like minded individuals to exhort your own values which does not contain images of this nature.
