Blasphemous Pakistan

While the Danish support protest got very good feedback across the Western web, we know of one person who wouldn't be happy about it.

That's Ayman Al-Zwahiri urging a boycott on countries that had published cartoons caricaturing the Prophet. Countries such as Egypt, Jordan and Pakistan.

Whoops, does that mean Osama will have to leave Pakistan now? And he's so comfily ensconced in some warlord's fortress on the border.
In a reference to cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad printed in several European newspapers, Zawahiri said the West had committed deliberate blasphemy and was guilty of double standards.

"They did it on purpose and they continue to do it without apologising, even though no one dares to harm Jews or to challenge Jewish claims about the Holocaust nor even to insult homosexuals."

...

"In France a Muslim father cannot prevent his daughter from having sex because she is protected by the law, but this same law punishes her if she covers her hair," he said.
Ah, yes, the double standards of the West. The father, indubitably, should be allowed to kill her if she has sex without legal penalty - the way he'd be able to do in so many Muslim countries.
