    I wouldnt even do that. At most, Id give a Tunisian an exploding cigar, or shake a Syrians hand while wearing a joy buzzer.

    No. This is still about freedom of speech. You should be able to post caricatures of icons of one religion without having to do the same to all others aswell.

    Ok, I had to scan and it's a crappy scanner, but it should be legible.



    Images copyright Christoffer Zieler 2003.

    Here's what the text means:
    Blue: Resurrection
    Red: Sideways resurrection
    Yellow: Resurrection with a twist
    White: Saviour-cam
    Black: Resurrection in darkness over water

    Note - they were meant to be published for easter.

    :D

    As per the rejection - an email has indeed been published in which the reason given for the rejection of the cartoon was that the readers would probably get upset. It's a lame newspaper and they were among the fiercest opponents of some 'christian blasphemy' a couple of decades ago. However, none of this is about the quality of the newspaper, it's about the specific article and cartoons that were published.

    Ironduck, you speak Dutch?

    In any case, I odn't get the cartoon, unless "ressurection" has some funny double-meaning in Dutch.

    Sounds like the cartoonist is just pissed that his cartoon sucked and is taking advantage the current situation by screaming "hypocracy" to exact revenge on the paper.

    I don't speak Dutch, but since the text isn't in Dutch that's hardly a problem..

    The Jebus thing is from a Simpsons episode when Homer ends up on a missionary trip, it's intentional :p.

    I totally misread this entire thing ... I thought the newspaper was refusing to print the pictures that are supposed to come from Iran ...

    Well they are refusing that too, now. Earlier today they apparently stated that they were going to print those,.

    Ahh, ok, I was wondering if that was a bit too coincidental. ;)

    I know he translated them.
    But I found them so mind numbingly unfunny, I assumed there was a double meaning.

    IronDuck:
    Then it's in Danish? Are these the cartoons referred to in the Opening Post, or did I miss something? :confused:
