So far on my blog I have offered several links to commentaries about the Danish Mohammed cartoons. These are contained under the post headings “Cartoons and Liberty”, “An Intelligent Cartoon”, and “Lies Die when Speech is Free”, and “An Intelligent Reply”. This last one doesn’t agree with me or any of my other links on the rightness of publishing the cartoons, but does offer an intelligent dissent.
Happily, I keep finding more good commentaries supporting freedom of speech as I believe it should be supported, so here is an additional list of articles for your considertion:
Cartoon Rage By Diana West, Washington Times.
“Must-See TV” a cartoon by Cox and Forkum, followed by commentary.
Curse of the Moderates by Charles Krauthammer, Washington Post.
Print Free or Die by Michael Graham, Jewish World Review. You’ll have to scroll down past a blank space on this one before you get to the article, but there’s a good reason why. : D
Just to Sing The Belmont Club blog. “…the EU is preparing regulations to restrict speech to prevent angering religious communities.”
The Past as Prologue The Belmont Club blog. “And now it turns out that these cartoons have been circulated in the Muslim world, in Egyptian newspapers to be precise, as far back as October 2005.”
As you can tell by now, I see the present controversy over the Danish Mohammed cartoons to be especially important. I hadn’t blogged for quite awhile, until violence broke out over 12 cartoons featuring the Prophet Mohammed.
These cartoons and the Muslim and non-Muslim reactions to them clarifies issues that for many have been blurred until now. These are issues that make the difference between intellectual freedom and submission. We’d better pay attention.
