Palestinians threatened to kidnap Europeans.

And the leader of Lebanon’s Shi’ite Hizbollah group said:

the cartoonists would have thought twice if Muslims had fulfilled a 1989 edict by late Iranian leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini to kill Britain’s Salman Rushdie over his novel The Satanic Verses.

“Had a Muslim carried out Imam Khomeini’s fatwa against the apostate Salman Rushdie, cialis sale then those lowlifers would not have dared discredit the Prophet, not in Denmark, Norway or France.”

I’m not surprised to see any of that.

I was surprised to find a Canadian website (cited by Google News that defended the Muslim overreaction and condemned Western freedom of expression.

I swear it’s like watching a cow argue in favor of McDonalds.

Let me make this clear to the guy in Canada, the folks in the Middle East, the liberals in Madison and the conservatives in Congress:

The one thing I’m willing to fight any of you to the death over is my right to say whatever the hell I want.

(And I promise to defend your right to do the same.)
