In other posts here and here I have linked to several sites showing the fear our press has of retaliation by militant Islam, should they show a few innocuous cartoons. They claim to be doing this out of respect for the "peaceful religion of Islam". What they are really doing is leading us down the path to dhimmitude. In the article linked in the title of this post, Diana West gives us the road map. Multicultural political correctness will be the end of life as we know it if we don't wake up, and soon. An excerpt from Diana's article:
This is the lesson of Cartoon Rage 2006, a cultural nuke set off by an Islamic chain reaction to those 12 cartoons of Muhammad appearing in a Danish newspaper. We have watched the Muslim meltdown with shocked attention, but there is little recognition that its poisonous fallout is fear. Fear in the State Department, which, like Islam, called the cartoons unacceptable. Fear in Whitehall, which did the same. Fear in the Vatican, which did the same. And fear in the media, which have failed, with few, few exceptions, to reprint or show the images. With only a small roll of brave journals, mainly in Europe, to salute, we have seen the proud Western tradition of a free press bow its head and submit to an Islamic law against depictions of Muhammad. That's dhimmitude.
