This Just In…

Posted by on February 11 at 16:03 PM

From the AP:

Saudi Arabia’s top cleric said in a Friday sermon that it was too late for apologies and those responsible for the drawings should be put on trial and punished…

“Now in the West insulting the prophet is allowed, but questioning the Holocaust is considered a crime,” [the Iranian president] said. “We ask, why do you insult the prophet? The response is that it is a matter of freedom, while in fact they (who insult the founder of Islam) are hostages of the Zionists. And the people of the U.S. and Europe should pay a heavy price for becoming hostages to Zionists.”

…Saudi Sheik Abdul Rahman al-Seedes, the imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, called on Muslims to reject apologies for the “slanderous” caricatures.

“Is there only freedom of expression when it involves insults to Muslims? With one voice … we will reject the apology and demand a trial,” he said in his sermon, which was published Saturday in the Al Riyad daily.

They sound pretty upset about colonialism, don’t they?
