Disgraceful Dhimmitude: Yale University Press Afraid To Publish Muhammad Cartoons In Book About Muhammad Cartoons!

When I saw this, I found it hard to believe, in a way. But, then, I find it totally believable when you realize to what degree Muslims have terrorized the world, and Muslim apologists have twisted the truth about Islam. Yale University Press has refused to include the 12 cartoons that the upcoming book, “The Cartoons That Shook the World”, is all about!

If you are going to write a book about the Muhammad cartoon “controversy”, and what happened in that particular situation, what would be the most basic thing to include in the book? Why, the cartoons, of course. How can you go into all of the riots, killing, and mayhem purportedly caused by the cartoons, if the reader does not know what the cartoons looked like? After all, most Americans have never seen the cartoons, since most media in the West, with a few notable exceptions like the Philadelphia Enquirer, were afraid to publish them! What would be the point of describing the whole situation, which started with the cartoons being published by Jyllands-Posten, a Danish newspaper, in September 2005, without the reader seeing for them self the cause of the mayhem? When these cartoons were first published, they received very little notice or comment. Then, towards the end of 2005, several Imams began putting together various documents, as well as other, “even more offensive” cartoons, so as to whip up the faithful into full riot mode. (For one of those “more offensive” images,  go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pig_person.jpg .) In fact, the OIC (Organization of the Islamic Conference) actually issued a document to the United Nations demanding that sanctions be imposed against Denmark! These Imams, and various Muslim organizations and governments,  managed to incite the faithful into full “Muslims behaving badly” mode in early 2006, resulting in rioting in many cities around the world. When it was finally over, about 100 people (mostly Muslims) had been killed. Later violence included “anniversary” rioting in September 2006, the 1 year anniversary of the original publication of the cartoons, and the bombing of the Danish embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan in 2008.

So, these must have truly been terrible cartoons to cause all of this mayhem. Well, you be the judge.

Oh, what terror these cartoons must strike in the hearts of Muslims! Give me a break! Do Christians riot and kill when “artists” make statues of Jesus out of dung? You know the answer to that question.

The fact that Yale University, and Yale University Press, have failed to put the very cartoons that the book is talking about in the book is an outrage. And, to make matters worse, the publisher decided not to include a number of other images of Muhammad, including the one where he is being tormented in Hell in Dante’s Inferno. These are well known images that have been created by the likes of Rodin and Dali and have been seen by millions of people over the years without “Muslims behaving badly” incidents.

  1. […] Yale University Press went so far as to publish a book on the Danish “Jyllands-Posten” cartoons that offended Muslims in 2005—without showing any of the cartoons!  Sort of like publishing a cookbook without any recipes. (Link) […]

    MAY I HUMBLY REPEAT THE HOLY WORDS BY JESUS (ISA A.S. IN ISLAM) ” O GOD, FORGIVE THEM (BOTH PARTIES) FOR THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING”

    Cultural relativity is an acceptable doctrine only until a culture impedes on human rights. Islam is wrong here, as Christians have been wrong in the past. It is ridiculous and craven to hide behind an ideological standard in defending the murder and attempted murder of human beings. Stand up, we must hold all human institutions to human standards. Governments, Societies, Cultures and Religions alike.

    But islam is not even a religion!

    It is a mafia of pedophiles, of thieves and of genocidal assassins(Hassan-sins,
    followers of Hassan Ibn Al Sabbah, the Nizarite old man of the Alamut Mountain)

    These toxic viruses drifted from outer space or vomited from deepest hell
    worship a piece of rock(the Kaaba) set in a silver spittoon in Makkah and which they name allah, piss be upon the thing!
