Anti-government graffiti is appearing in Iran. Did you see it in the old media?
The link shows messages scrawled on a wall in University of Tehran social science department lambasting the ayatollahs for sending money to support terror movements in Gaza and Lebanon.
Kudos to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
On the front of today’s Currents, the editorial section, it carried a fine summation of the ACORN scandal written by Kevin Ferris, with the added bonus of an excellent report by Frank Wilson of Bruce Bawer’s book, Surrender: Appeasing Islam, Sacrificing Freedom, which points out the strange lengths the media, art and educational
establishments go toward appeasing radical Islam. Wilson noted, for
instance, that a survey showing that 20 percent of US Muslims aren’t really opposed to suicide bombing was portrayed in papers such as USA Today and the Christian Science Monitor as being a positive thing.
Wilson took pride, rightfully, in pointing out the Inquirer ran one of the controversial Danish cartoon depictions of Mohammad that created a stir in 2006.
He appears incorrect, at least as per Wikipedia, with regard to the Inky being the only daily to do so. However, it is true that the vast majority of the old media — broadcast as well as print — chose to run and hide.
So kudos to the Inquirer.
Better Late Than Never Regarding Acorn
Yale University Press removed, along with other images of Mohammed, the cartoons that were published in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten on Sept. 30, 2005 from Brandis Professor Jytte Klausen’s book “The Cartoons That Shook The World” which is basically the point of Ms. Klausen’s defense of free speech in the face of intimidation and tyranny.
So if you want to see the cartoons you have to go to places on the web such as BillLawrenceOnline.Com
