More on the Orchestration of the Cartoon Flap

        Jyllands-Posten has a new article on way Danish Muslims brewed up the present "controversy," in cooperation with diplomats from Muslim countries, and by using a lot of lies.  It's available in Danish, or translated into English on Captain's Quarters.  Go read.

        Meanwhile, there's a nice article in The Australian about the manipulation of Muslims, the value clashes between East and West, and the idiocy of it all.  Here's one very good shot:       
Monty Python's biting satire of religion, Life Of Brian, as well as Martin Scorsese's The Last Temptation [of Christ] and Terence McNally's Corpus Christi, each triggered protests, but not violence.

        "With Life of Brian we were vilified," recalls Monty Python's Terry Gilliam.  "Yet Christianity is alive and well.  If your religion is so vulnerable that a little bit of disrespect is going to bring it down, it's not worth believing in frankly."

        Perhaps that's the most important revelation in all this otherwise meaningless brouhaha.  The Muslim world isn't ready for prime time.  Muslims, as a group, aren't mature enough to deal with the modern world.
