Yale University Press Censors Harmless Muhammad Cartoons

Don’t be too hard on media outlets too craven to publish the tepid Danish cartoons that Muslims used as a thin pretext to intimidate dhimmis. True, it was impossible for them to do their job without letting us see for ourselves that the cartoons were nothing any sane person would riot over. But there are others just as cowardly. Yale University Press, for example:

Yale University has removed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad from an upcoming book about how they caused outrage across the Muslim world, drawing criticism from prominent alumni and a national group of university professors.

Yale cited fears of violence.

But… but… I thought Islam was the Religion of Peace.

Yale University Press, which the university owns, removed the 12 caricatures from the book “The Cartoons That Shook the World” by Brandeis University professor Jytte Klausen. The book is scheduled to be released next week. …

Islamic law generally opposes any depiction of the prophet, even favorable, for fear it could lead to idolatry.

The execrable New York Slimes, Washington Compost, and Los Angeles Slimes also shrank from the publishing the innocuous cartoons, although the NY Slimes did muster the courage to publish “Piss Christ” and a portrait of the Virgin Mary covered in elephant dung and vaginas cut out of porno magazines. At least the media and academia can redeem themselves for their cowardice and obsequious dhimmitude by boldly bashing Christianity at every possible opportunity.
