International Day of Anger and Kevin Myers

Kevin Myers hits the spot perfectly in today's Irish Times - the international day of anger is not in reference to Myers frequent angry outbursts (which I unashamedly enjoy!) or the reaction of many of his readers but the call of Sheikh Yussef al-Qaradawi, head of the International Association of Muslim Scholars, for Friday to "be an international day of anger for God and his prophet".
Michelle Malkin has the details.

Myers =
Across the Islamic world, virulent anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism are cultural norms. But if obscure Westerners in an obscure newspaper in an obscure country (sorry, Denmark) even make an alleged sketch of Muhammad, people's lives are threatened, gunmen storm buildings, foreign travel for Danes is banned over much of the planet, ambassadors withdrawn, oh yes, and Bill Clinton - of course - appeases the mob.

I've seen the cartoons on the internet. They are innocent, even childish figures like those you could find in any comic, and upon which you could place any name. They are no more "Muhammad" than they are Eamon de Valera or Queen Victoria.

In any normal circumstances, I would love to publish one here - if only to show you what idiotic nonsense the current international outcry is. But these are not normal circumstances.
