Self Imposed Sharia Alert: Cowardly Newspaper Editors Refuse To Publish Cartoon that 'References' Muhammad.

Topics: Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam

Where's Mohammad.gifMore media capitulation to Islamic supremacism by spineless, Islam kowtowing, editors who refuse to run a cartoon that simpley asks, "Where's Muhammad."

From Editor & Publisher: Editors Pass on Comic Strip With 'Where's Muhammad?' Reference:

Some editors opted not to run Sunday's "Non Sequitur" comic strip, which included a "Where's Muhammad?" reference, according to The Washington Post's "Comic Riffs" blog.

Wayne Miller's strip on Sunday depicted a scene in a park with a variety of characters, with the caption, "Picture book title voted least likely to ever find a publisher: "Where's Muhammad?"

Some 20 papers, including the Portland Press Herald and the Boston Globe -- both of which "Non Sequitur" Wiley Miller reads -- opted to run a Sunday replacement strip featuring the recurring character Obvious-Man. "Non Sequitur" is syndicated by Universal UClick.

The Washington Post ran the strip online Sunday, but not in its print edition.

Miller told Comic Riffs, "I have absolutely no information on why any of the editors chose not to run it. All I can do is surmise that the irony of their being afraid to run a cartoon that satirizes media's knee-jerk reaction to anything involving Islam bounced right of their foreheads. So what they've actually accomplished is, sadly, [to] validate the point."

"Non Sequitur," which bowed in 1991, has won National Cartoonists Society division awards for Best Comic Strip and Best Comic Panel.

As Pamela Geller points out, the editor's fear is understandable (given the history of un-founded violence and death threats from followers of Islam), but these cowards should be asking themselves, "isn't the alternative more frightening?".
Isn't the acension of sharia and blasphemy laws more frightening than publishing a silly toon? Isn't the silencing of free men a scarier prospect than the whole of the global jihad.

Isn't freedom worth fighting for? Worth dying for? How dare they so casually relinquish that which our fathers, grandfathers and founding fathers fought so hard and died for.

Someone said if you trade freedom for peace you get neither or something along those lines. True that.

As Pamela goes on to aptly note - the irony of the cartoon's message should not get lost on anyone.
