A Snowball In Hell

In other Mideast news, the Lebanese magazine Shihan joined in the Muhammad cartoon adventure by reprinting three of the cartoons.

In the article with the subtitle reading, “World’s Muslims, be logical,” Jihad Momani asks, “Which one do you think damages Islam more? These cartoons or the scene of a suicide bomber who blows himself up outside a wedding ceremony in Amman, or the kidnappers that slaughters their victims before the cameras?”

I'm glad that this episode has shocked and challenged an ancient taboo, and I'm also glad to see newspaper and magazine editors all over Europe (and now Lebanon) prodding the public in the direction it ought to go.
