I am still struggling with what do about the whole cartoon controversy; thinking of putting together a "Cartoon Reader", so to speak. But let's start getting information and comments out there. Here's one:
I am usually very critical of "Islamic" organizations in the West, but I liked the "Unity Message" put out by the MAB (Muslim Association of Britain):
It's worth noting how "mainstream"--and I mean mainstream British, not mainstream Muslim--the event is in its content and the people involved with it. It gives one the feel not of "Muslims versus everone else" but "British folk--with British Muslims in the lead".
Of course, I know I will find something to criticize very soon...
