Do you speak french?
Do you understand the exact meaning of the cartoon?
Are you able to understand what sarcasm or satire is?
It is MY understanding (from the little i read) that this magazine is actually not explicitly depicting Mohammed, in fact they did not make this clear
and its open to the reader.
It also my understanding that the PRESS (and likely also you, right here, with your post!) just form an opinion, entirely out of context. For example,
when the press says "they make fun of Mohammed, depict Mohammed" - while the cartoon in reality is NOT a mockery of Mohammed but a satirical, cynical
piece making fun of the entire situation with the movie.
This situation is indeed as absurd and bizarre (and now with all its ramification with people crying to censor FREE SPEECH, for god's sake) that it
very well justifies a satirical piece.
What can be more abstruse and worthy a satire than some pathetic movie appearing and Muslims rioting about it?
Also..do me a favor and explain your "limits of free speech" please and also your opinion how offending the cartoon is. Of course, i strongly
anticipate you understand french and know the meaning of this cartoon! Or did you just form your opinion seeing the picture and the naked butt? This
would not be enough to form an opinion, i am afraid.
