"Non Sequitur" is a popular comic that runs daily in about 800 newspapers, including this one. But the "Non Sequitur" cartoon that appeared in last Sunday's Post was not the one creator Wiley Miller drew for that day.
Editors at The Post and many other papers pulled the cartoon and replaced it with one that had appeared previously. They were concerned it might offend and provoke some Post readers, especially Muslims.
Miller is known for social satire. But at first glance, the single-panel cartoon he drew for last Sunday seems benign. It is a bucolic scene imitating the best-selling children's book "Where's Waldo?" A grassy park is jammed with activity. Animals frolic. Children buy ice cream. Adults stroll and sunbathe. A caption reads: "Where's Muhammad?"

Yep, the same people who call Timothy McVeigh a Christian terrorist, and try to draw equivalence between Islamic terror and alleged Christian terror, want to censor satire against Mohammed. These are the same people who think that a crucifix in a jar of urine is art.
The fact is, the liberals are afraid of Muslims. They are Islamophobic, in that, they don’t want to provoke the wrath of Muslims by satirizing Mohammed. These same people have no fear of Christian terrorists for sticking the crucifix in urine. That’s the difference between Christian terror and Islamic terror.
Attending to business? Only one place I can guess.
I think it is perfectly clear where Muhammad can be found. Take a look at the small building at the top of the drawing with the cat sitting on it. He is obviously in the basment of that building.

The same newspapers that constantly try to tell us that islam is a religion of peace are simultaneously cowering in fear about offending the peaceful muzzies.
My dog made a pile of muhammad in the yard this morning.
Post editors believe their decision was prudent, given the past cartoon controversies and heightened sensitivities surrounding Islam. But it also can be seen as timid. And it sets an awfully low threshold for decisions on whether to withhold words or images that might offend.
This paper is afraid of islam. Everything which is not islam offends islam. Therefore, all content must pass an islam test before it goes into print. So the Post is now a Saudi paper, not an American paper. The Washington Post is dead. The author wasted two pages when this final paragraph would do.
Yup, one is a straw man conjured up by the left and the media, the other is a fact of life in a lot of countries.
Don't worry, Mr Ombudsman, you won't have to wait long. The server is fast.
Thanks, now that song will be stuck in my head all afternoon.
Thanks, I’d managed to forget it.
It’s hard to forget because it is so true.
There’s a delightful comedian/ventriloquist who had a dummy called “Achmed, the dead terrorist,” or something like that. Sadly, Achmed has dematerialized.
