Will history repeat itself....

..and this time will more people be paying attention?

Danish newspapers reprint controversial cartoons with a history.

The outrage starts .


Governments get involved.

Telling comments are made, and editorials are written.

“There could have been other ways to do it without the drawing, which I personally do not like,” Abdul Wahid Petersen, a moderate imam and a Protestant who converted to Islam, told a foreign news agency.
He said, “It’s not a good idea to reproduce it and the newspapers could have defended the cartoonist differently, without resorting to provocation.”
“It’s good to have a dialogue on freedom of expression, but you shouldn’t seek out a confrontation from the start,” he said.

Children's television characters get in on the action.

People eat less cheese.

and people die. (no link yet, but.........)

All because of these cartoons.

And there are still people who don't get it, even though they all have seen it before.
