U.S. freedom of the Press was chilled when Yale University Press barred publication of a book about the 12 Danish cartoons spoofing Muhammed. The Press thought publication could provoke violence (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/ Arutz-7, 8/20).
Is the great United States of American going to submit to Muslim threats? Are we going to allow a hostile culture to threaten our own? They constantly defame other faiths. Now, I find the Danish cartoons in poor taste. They should have left Islam's founder alone. But what they symbolized is true, the extensive terrorism emanating from branches of Islam. Threats against whistle blowers vindicate them. Other faiths can accept criticism, why not Islam? If Islam is insulted, why do the mosques in the Palestinian Authority and Jordan and in many places insult other faiths routinely? Those imams want tolerance for themselves but not for others.
