What part of "bite me" don't they understand?

Muhammad (peace be upon him)
Sanction this!

OIC and Arab League Seek UN Resolution on Blasphemous Cartoons:
In response to the outrageous act of some foreign media against Islamic beliefs, OIC and the Arab League are seeking a UN resolution, backed by possible sanctions, to protect religions.
UN sanctions, cool! We know how effective they are.
The Makkah-based Muslim World League said yesterday that it had sent a letter to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, urging the United Nations and its subsidiary organizations to stop smear campaigns against Islam and Prophet Muhammad.

“The MWL, which represents Muslim minorities and Islamic organizations around the world, hereby conveys to you, the United Nations and other international organizations the indignation and outrage of Muslims over the smear campaigns being launched by a section of the Western media against Islam and Prophet Muhammad,” MWL Secretary-General Dr. Abdullah Al-Turki said in a letter to UN chief Annan.

Al-Turki said the MWL had received several messages from Muslims in Denmark and Norway and other European countries denouncing the sacrilegious cartoons. He urged the UN to keep a watch on such anti-Islamic campaigns.
Sheesh, several whole messages from some folks whose caftans are too tight. I'm so upset. And then there's this:
Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak warned that the decision by some European papers to publish the cartoons could encourage terrorists.
It doesn't seem to me that Islamic terrorists have been exactly sitting around in their undershirts drinking beer and eating Slim Jims for lack of anything to do. I always thought it was kind of like their life style, but then I don't work for an Egyptian:
The drawings, which first ran in a Danish paper in September, were reprinted Wednesday in France Soir and several other European papers rallying to defend freedom of expression.

The managing editor of France Soir, Jacques Lefranc, was fired after the publication by owner Raymond Lakah, an Egyptian magnate, employees said. No official reason was immediately announced.
That best part of all this is that the Euros seemed have developed some backbone. Good on them.
