    CAIR-Ohio Response to Cartoons in Akron Beacon Journal

    Cleveland, OH, 2/9/06)-Chip Bok’s February 5 cartoon of Prophet Muhammad in the Akron Beacon Journal is hurtful and irresponsible. It shows a degree of insensitivity beyond measure and a lack of cultural and religious understanding not befitting of a reputable paper such as the Beacon Journal.

    The US is known as the world’s most democratic country where we value freedom, and where freedom of speech and freedom of the press are guaranteed in the Bill of Rights. (You got that right.
    However, when the press misuses its freedom to launch attacks against an entire people and their faith, we, as Americans, should stand against such calumny and bigotry. The demeaning cartoons proliferating around the world, and now in the Akron Beacon Journal, are similar to the hateful anti-Semitic images used in the past to dehumanize Jews. Bok’s cartoon is like painting a swastika or burning a cross and calling it free speech. :eek2:

    With freedom comes responsibility. These cartoons have hurt more than 1.2 billion Muslims and have offended many other people of faith :sleep: . Bok’s cartoon is a provocation that will only feed anti-Americanism. His cartoon is antithetical to the values of our country which are built on respect for other people regardless of their color, religion or race. We support freedom of the press, but we object to any action that misrepresents American values or that encourages religious intolerance, racism or hate. What a crock of horse............................................ :nine: shit!!!!! (And when he's spewing these beautiful words about other religions, he has his fingers crossed behind his back, going nanana nanana,I suppose this would sound all lovey dovey if they protested the same for us christians. But alas they do nothing while were slaughtered in the press and then expect us to bow and bend over.)#@#$@#$#$$%#%@#$%#$. There I've said my PEACE..........

    Sane people should just start dumping cartoons all over the world.

    The cartoon should be of a gay and bestial sex orgy between Muhammad, Moses, Buddha, Ganesha, Jesus and the Virgin Mary.

    Once that gets around maybe everybody will stop whining.

    Ganesha the Elephant God represents Hindus and the animal kingdom. Which religion gets offended by sheep? The point is to offend everybody so they all feel equal again.

    On second thought it's a good idea-sheep would offend New Zealanders. That's very important.
