Danish Embassy Bombing: Merely To Jolt Our Memory

Helpful Reminder Not To Look!
(Ignored Image by Kurt Westergaard)

Lest we might forget, militant Islamists exploded a car bomb outside the Danish Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan on Monday to remind us that we should not be looking at Westergaard's satirical cartoon above, nor at any of the other satirical, political cartoons published by the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten on September 30, 2005.

All of these satirical images have been securely collected at the Wikipedia entry on the Jyllands-Posten affair and can be safely avoided at that site.

They should therefore not be looked at via this link.

If the bombers were young, they should know once the image is digital it will never disappear; but of course the Iman(?) may be living in the 12th century.

And, of course, bombings like this one serve merely to remind us of what we should not be looking at.

Jim Baxter, the story was interesting, but it doesn't belong here as a comment to this post, nor to any other post on this blog, so far as I can see.

Perhaps you intended to post elsewhere, on a different blog.

Well, that's a link to Wikipedia, which suggests potential problems for lots of my Wikipedia links.

Odd. I've seen nothing remotely connected to the blog entry in my email.

The message came through via email from the one who commented. That person had concerns that on the Wikipedia site was a virus associated associated with the images, perhaps.

So, be careful at Wikipedia is the message, I suppose.
