It's A Matter Of Perspective

From EU Referendum:Cartoon wars
Even the editor of the Jordanian Al-Shihan newspaper was drawn into the fracas, suggesting Muslim anger was unreasonable, and then sacked by his publisher after he had run the cartoons - the second editor to suffer such a fate. But the point he made was difficult to argue: “What brings more prejudice against Islam, these caricatures or pictures of a hostage-taker slashing the throat of his victim?” (emphasis added - ed.)
One wonders if many in the Islamic world would even understand that question.
