Supporting brave Muslim journalists

Where is the support in the west for the brave Muslm journalists who have taken on the Mohammed cartoon issue? These journalists have risked life and limb and even their freedom exhorting their fellow countrymen to take a more rational, balanced and non violent response to the matter.

In Yemen - 3 journalists who advised a non violent response and the acceptance of an apology from the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten are now in prison. The local Imam thinks they should be executed for preaching reconciliation.

This whole issue has to be an embarassment to the Muslim world. No one can take them seriously after this. What is even more embarassing is that western main stream media have decided to follow the path of self censorship and not print the cartoons.

This is a type of behavior known as "Dhimmitude"

The following article in the LA Times is a scathing exposure on the complete lack of courage shown by the western media on this issue,1,1375343.column?coll=la-news-columns
