More on the cartoons

In the usual on February 16, 2006 by karan

Fury over the cartoons continues, especially in Pakistan. They’ve burnt down a KFC in Peshawar, presumably because the colouring is red & white. I’m just loving the headlines like “Pakistan cartoon violence continues.” Sounds so harmless, doesn’t it?

More from the BBC – what exactly is the issue? If you can’t portray it, at least talk about it, and they do it pretty sensibly there.

Finally, what I think is a very intelligent response, however controversial – an Iranian newspaper calls for cartoons on the Holocaust. I’m not anti-Semetic by any means, but that really is a test on who the newspapers of Europe are willing to inflame. Curious to see the outcome.
