Fishing for Fatwas
Danish Jyllands-Posten editor Flemming Rose subject of Muslim terrorist threats for publishing Mohammad cartoons
It had better not be! We had better not ever let this become old news! We can only allow this to become old news when the threat disappears, when people like Flemming Rose -- whom Danish police recently revealed had been the target of a botched terrorist bomb attack -- don't have to live out their lives in fear. We can let this become old news when courageous journalists and writers, such as Salman Rushdie, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, and our own Michelle Malkin et al, don't have to live furtive lives in heavily guarded secrecy for fear of being assassinated by one of those righteous followers of this gentle Religion of Peace.
Not only is this subject not old news, but the new news just keeps getting worse. More writers and artists, politicians and now even bloggers have been forced into hiding -- some, like British blogger Lionheart, forced into living a life in exile in fear of their own Petainist governments, who have eagerly collaborated with their Muslim occupiers, and in their cowardly attempts to appease these backward brutes have rushed to put new Orwellian "Hate Crime" laws on their books. Laws which make criticizing Islam in any negative way whatsoever -- even in their own country, a crime subject to fines and/or imprisonment.
Old news? Hardly.
If only it were.
In honor of Flemming Rose and all of those other brave people who have quite literally risked their lives to show us the evil face of Islam, the very least we in the West can do for them is to vow to never, ever forget them.
With this purpose in mind, Radarsite will periodically post these deadly and fateful cartoons. In this small way we can thumb our noses at the mullahs, and maybe they will in turn honor us with a personal fatwa.
So here they are once again, in all their righteous glory. Enjoy them once again. People put their lives at risk to bring them to you.
