BBC News – France in embassy alert over Prophet Muhammad cartoons


BBC News – France in embassy alert over Prophet Muhammad cartoons.

Yep. So we actually talked about this in class today. The French people think the religious strife caused over the film is ridiculous in the sense of free speech. The way it was put to me was “can you laugh at everything” and if not, what can you laugh at. The publication of the cartoons was by a French newspaper famous for making fun of everything and represents a testament to free speech. A demonstration of free speech, if you will. Really interesting article touching on both France and the object of a lot of recent news.
