So-called community representatives

This week, I found, much to my disgust, that some dhimmi rabbis and priests prostrated themselves in CAIR's attempts to attack a cartoonist, Chip Bok, at the Akron Beacon Journal (via Medpundit) for a cartoon he drew that made jabs not at the Islamists, but rather, at CNN, for the way that they blotted out any clear vision of the Mohammad cartoons. On the cartoonist's blog, several vicious comments were posted that were most likely part of an organized campaign, by people who clearly did not read the cartoon, or who only see what they want to. As Michelle says, this is how CAIR thrives - by ways of useful idiots.

Regarding the Ohio rabbi who was quoted in the Beacon Journal, I want to make it perfectly clear that people like him do not speak for me, and should be ashamed of themselves for aiding an enemy that's published quite a few anti-semitic cartoons of its own in Saudi Arabia, to name but one dictatorship (Hat tip: Michelle Malkin). Speaking of which, I hope that the conservative bi-weekly in Harvard will stand strong on its own right to free speech.

Interesting thing about the first comment posted on Bok's blog is that the writer, it appears, is an anti-war activist, as another commenter reveals.

The Beacon Journal has summed things up correctly in an editorial on February 12, and the cartoonist has defended his cartoon. See also Tim Blair's comments on the subject.

Others on the subject include The World According to Carl, Hoffman's Hearsay, Global Perspective, Small Town Veteran, Macmind, Clark Mountain Musings, The Pink Flamingo Bar & Grill, The Strata-Sphere, Conservative Culture.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
