He who gives up a little liberty to gain a little security, will deserve neither and loose both.

That is what one of the Founding Fathers of the USA, Benjamin Franklin, once said. Here is another pearl of his wisdom:

Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins.

So be ashamed, Daily Telegraph, NY Daily News, Associated Press: you just turned your own country into a playball of terrorism of the Islam ideology. This is the NY Daily News:

And this is the cartoon they blurred out:

The joke is in the double meaning of the verb "se moquer". The phrase "Faut pas se moquer" can be translated as "Don't you dare to make fun of this" as well as "Don't you dare to take me for a ride"

This is the Daily Telegraph:


When reporting on the Charlie Islam terror attack, the UK Daily Telegraph blurred a cartoon representing Muhammed. By doing so, they revoked the principles of freedom and bowed to terrorism. Mirror courtesy of geenstijl.nl

And this is what they blurred out.

La vie de Mahomet

La vie de Mahomet – The life of Mahomet/Muhammed/Mohemmed/whatever. A cartoon that in a comical/satirical way reconstructs the stories around the birth and life of this so-called messenger, thus trying to gain an insight in what kind of man he must have been. Please note that the above picture is actually of a different edition as the one that the Daily Telegraph blurred out. However, it is suitable enough to demonstrate the idiocy of the Daily Telegraph’s self-censorship. The complete comic book can be read (in French) here.

Grab your weapons, friends!

Grab your weapons, friends! By Francisco J. Olea

Immortals! By Joep Bertrams

I don’t care which religion you choose to follow, if any. And even if you want to fight for your religion, soît (chess would be a better hobby, but I understand: chess is not for everybody, it requires you to use your brain). But if you assume it is justified to fight that fight with anything other than words, you are sick in the head. Remember boys and girls: if you tease and taunt the lion long enough, then sooner or later the lion *will* bite. If you want to know how that feels: just ask the Palestinians.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. (Edmund Burke, 1729-1797)


Si Mahomet Revenait In English: “If Muhammed were to return”, “But I am the prophet, Abruti!”, “Shut up, infidel!”
