    the philadelphia inquirer ran em to their credit.

    It has to be said that many of the editors in Muslim countries got persecuted
    by law enforcement for printing them. As you posted before.

    But I agree not all Muslims are bad. Religion goes only that far. Sometimes
    in the heat of the moment we tend to just hate on all Muslims. At least
    I can be guilty of that.

    Oh well you know I ridiculed them for that, especially the NYT and WP that only
    allows the opinon page to disagree with them.

    It is pathetic. Just factual it was incorrect.

    I assume you know that the editors in Jordan and Egypt face charges.
    And you know that the Philly Inquirer was the exception to the rule.

    When someone makes a point like in the article, stay to the facts they are damning enough.

    Agreed. In Europe too, jobs were lost. UK and US wimped out. Really sad, more of our universities published than MSM.

    it actually gives me hope that college papers printed it, then got
    attacked by the pc crowd forcing an dicussion.

    Two of my best friends teach at college and are frustrated by
    the leftwing "common agreement". They are both more centrist
    then conservatives but it pushes them in the conservative camp.

    Politically this discussion should work out well for conservative ideas.
    Because the facts and the moral high ground is all theirs to be had.
