    It seems the Washington Post was one of a few major papers that pulled a Sunday comic because they were afraid of the backlash from Islam.


    washingtonpost.com


    What cartoon had the WaPo editors hiding in fear of Islam?

    Arts & Living: Comics (washingtonpost.com)

    These are the same people who call me afraid because I am say the GZM is insensitive.

    Just something to think about.

    Really? The Washington Post called you "afraid"?

    When did that happen?

    "Yale University is refusing to publish cartoons and images of the Prophet Muhammad in a new book about those very pictures, which inflamed anger in parts of the Muslim world in 2006 — even as a growing tide of writers and artists say they are ready to take such risks for free speech.

    A spokesman for the Yale University Press said in an e-mail to FOXNews.com that such worries weighed heavily on them.

    "As an institution deeply committed to free expression, we were inclined to publish the cartoons and other images as proposed," Thomas Conroy said.

    But the Ivy League university in New Haven, Conn., was wary of arousing anger, so Yale consulted security experts and religious scholars who "confirmed that the republication of the cartoons by the Yale University Press ran a serious risk of instigating violence," a press spokesman told FOXNews.com.

    The book's author, Professor Jytte Klausen of Brandeis University, says she is disappointed that to see the institution "roll back our own principles" and faulted the school for relying on "various anonymous experts" in making their decision."

    Fearing Violence, Yale Nixes Muhammad Cartoons in New Book - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News - FOXNews.com


    "The fact that Yale University, and Yale University Press, have failed to put the very cartoons that the book is talking about in the book is an outrage. And, to make matters worse, the publisher decided not to include a number of other images of Muhammad, including the one where he is being tormented in Hell in Dante’s Inferno."

    Exactly how is this Islamaphobia?

    A phobia is usually being afraid of something for no reason.

    We have plenty of evidence that it can indeed be dangerous to print Cartoons about Islam.
