The Mohammed Cartoons

In case you haven't seen them yet, they're posted here, click and scroll down to the bottom of the page.

What I don't understand in this whole story is why the Danish newspaper published this page of cartoons in the first place. Maybe I'm not getting something here, but was it really necessary? Publishing one cartoon that reflects recent news events is one thing, publishing a full page specifically targeting a religious/ethnic group is another. A bit "uncomfortable" as someone I know would say.

Of course I'm not justifying the riots, just saying that the basic idea of publishing these cartoons in this full page spread was a bit weird.

Also of interest: A very large collection of images of Mohammed, including Muslim depictions"
