Deadly Cartoon Protests Roil the Globe
Posted on Feb 18, 2006
The cartoon-fueled hysteria continues unabated:
- In Libya: 10 die in the bloodiest protests yet.
- In Russia: Authorities shut down a newspaper that printed a tame cartoon of Muhammad, along with other religious figures.
- In Manhattan: 1,000 protesters rally in front of the Danish consulate.
- In Italy: An official quits after wearing a T-shirt with the controversial Muhammad cartoons.
16 Killed in Nigerian cartoon protests, along with five this week in Pakistan
Hey, Muslim centrists/moderates, if you want to do something to quell this insane violence, now would be a pretty good time to do so.
