Cartoon craziness, Re: Newspaper defends Jewish cartoon, National Post, August 10, 2010

Montreal’s La Metropole newspaper published a cartoon in it’s July issue depicting a Hasidic Jewish taxi driver driving a cab labelled Taxi de David and calling out “Come in! May Yaveh be with you…” The cartoon’s headline was “A taxi transformed into a…synagogue?”

Guess what would have happened if La Metropole published a cartoon depicting a devout Muslim taxi driver driving a cab labelled Taxi de Muhammad and calling out Come in! May Allah be with you, under the headline A taxi transformed into a…mosque?

Canada would have had it’s very own Danish cartoon episode, that’s what.

Pathetic and disturbing isn’t it? Crazy too.
