Killing Jews Is Hardly a Way to Show Outrage Over Cartoons
-The Federalist Papers
First Cartoonists then Jews. The pattern in Copenhagen was similar to that in Paris. After opening fire at a free speech event in Copenhagen featuring Swedish Mohammad cartoonist Lars Vilks, the gunman struck after midnight at a synagogue killing a Jewish man guarding the entrance before later being killed himself by police.
So is this the "outrage" we see over cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammad-shown by killing Jews? Is this the pattern we can now expect- the new one-two punch?
Either form of retaliation is sick. You don't kill people because you are offended by cartoons. Nor do you lash at and kill Jews over cartoons they had nothing to do with either.
