Dec makes a really good point.
Many of the arguments about the Cartoons were about the Freedom to offend. Saying they would defend the Freedom to offend. Are they defending David Irvings right to offend people by denying the Holocaust? David Irving is sentenced to three years in prison. The Danish Cartoonists are protected. To me I can see the difference between Irving and cartoonists. But will a Muslim in Iran see it. The real question is where are the right to offend people now?
