A double standard regarding the Muhammad Cartoons?

A few months ago, the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten published 12 cartoons depicting Muhammad in an unfavorable manner. Horrified by the cartoons and by the refusal of the Danish Government to publicly denounce them, Muslims have been sparking protests. Among the most vocals protesters, religious leaders in Saudi Arabia, which last week recalled its ambassador to Copenhagen, called for a boycott of Danish goods.

Knowing Saudi Arabia’s track record regarding religions other than Islam, isn’t this a case of double standard? I will let you make the call…

Look at the Muhammad cartoons (at the middle of the page).

Look at the cartoons in the Saudi press.

Its worse than a double standard that merely shows hypocrisy. The violence against free speech chills political speech at all levels. Europe must show its support for its freedoms. Remember what Burke said regarding evil and the silence of good men. In the meantime, light needs to be shined upon Middle Eastern "allies" and "neutrals."
