From the looks of things, Albert Brooks really had his work cut out for him.
Rage against caricatures of Islam’s revered prophet poured out across the Muslim world Saturday, with aggrieved believers calling for executions, storming European buildings and setting European flags afire.
Executions?! These cartoons are pretty innocuous compared to things that Christians and Jews put up with all the time. Jesus Christ Supercop, for example. (Note: Not Safe for Church and probably not for work either, but utterly hilarious unless you’re as uptight as a…mullah.) They are also a lot more on target. Perhaps that’s the reason for the protests – truth is simply too painful.
