Cartoon capers

FreedomforEgyptians blogger has images of an Egyptian newspaper that published the Danish cartoons five months ago. She notes:
Mind you that this is the holy Muslim month of Ramadan. While Muslims are worshipping in this holy month, not a single protest was called in Cairo against Denmark or the newspaper.
The editors in Egypt have not been called upon to resign or apologize. Nor have they been fired, threatened, hanged, or had their offices firebombed.

Oh, wait, those last are punishments preserved for Western journalists. Well, not all Western journalists. Most U.S. papers and Canadian Lefty publications are all touchy feely about religion this week. The sanctity of it, you know. (See posting below)
