Speaking with a forked tongue

Ahmad Abu Laban, who took along on his tour of the Middle East three cartoons that did not appear in the Jyllands-Posten, has been caught in a major deception, as reported by the World Net Daily ("'Muhammad cartoon' proved fake," February 8, 2006):
Danish television ... showed him speaking in English ... in condemnation of the boycott of Danish goods, then, in an interview with the Middle East news channel al-Jazeera, happily remarking in Arabic about how well the boycott was going.
If Abu Laban is willing to lie so blatantly about his own views on the boycott of Danish products, then why believe him when he claims that the three extra "cartoons came from threatening letters," especially since we already know that the pig-nosed 'cartoon' was not of Muhammad at all.

He has zero credibility.

If Abu Laban is willing to lie to promote his agenda of hatred....he can blend in with other Muslim fundamentalists. People shouldn't be so surprised that Abu Laben did this, I would have been surprised if he hadn't. The only thing missing was a signature on one of them with the name "Cohen".

Signature on one of them?

You mean on one of the cartoons, to make it seem that a Jew had been responsible for satirizing Muhammad's image?

Well ... there are certainly a lot of antisemitic (i.e., anti-Jewish) images in the Muslim world, so I can see your point (if I've understood you).

But I've not yet noticed any Islamist attempt to draw a specific link to Jews in this controversy.

Yes, that was exactly what I meant, try to make it seem that a Jew had drawn the cartoon.
