Saudis Call For Cartoon Control Police

Saudi Arabia wants laws and UN mandates to protect Isalm and Mohammed from satire and humor. They want the EU to prevent the publishing of more cartoons. In other words, they want to take away freedom of speech and make the world more like Saudi Arabia. This should come as no shock, considering the repressive Saudi society.

Prince Saud Al-Faisal, the Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia, has called for European countries to prevent a repeat of the cartoons published by a Danish newspaper. They want to eliminate freedom of the press.

Saud said that preventive measures were essential to maintain existing good relations between the European countries and the Arab world. In other words, they will behave as long as we write and say what they tell us.

GCC (Persian Gulf Cooperation Council) Secretary-General Abdul Rahman Al-Attiyah wants the European Union to enact laws to prevent the desecration of Islam and its symbols. I guess God needs help protecting Islam.

After a meeting with Javier Solana, the EU foreign policy chief, Attiyah said he was looking forward to joint Islamic-European endeavors to introduce a UN resolution that would incriminate the denigration of all prophets and religions. The fact that an EU official would actually entertain this idea and have this discussion should scare the hell out of Europe and all the free nations of the world.
