Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism

Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism by Daniel Pipes – New York Sun – February 7, 2006

* Editorial comment from Jon. “This has implications for all Freedoms, not just Freedom of Speech but also for the way we live our lives. We should all take this very seriously.”

The key issue at stake in the battle over the twelve Danish cartoons of the Muslim prophet Muhammad is this: Will the West stand up for its customs and mores, including freedom of speech, or will Muslims impose their way of life on the West? Ultimately, there is no compromise: Westerners will either retain their civilization, including the right to insult and blaspheme, or not.
