Egyptian cartoonists strike back at Denmark

Sandmonkey blogged The Syndicate of Egyptian cartoonists decided that they would respond to the danish cartoons by making their own cartoons on what happend.

This is a MUCH better way to respond; it certainly beats death threats and burning embassies.

A cartoon showing Islam as a flower being waterd by an angel, and when the evil people (note the "jewish nose"; egyptians in cartoons and books always protray jews with croocked noses) tried to step on the hose, it sprayed blood all over them. There is a Koranic verse on the bottom that looosely translates to "They tried to plot against Islam so we made them lose/fail".

A pig drawing the cartoon while saying saracsticly: "What is it? What's wrong? You never heard of something called Freedom of Expression? Hahahahahahaha". Please note the star of david hanging on the wall behind him.

I don't really see much humor in these cartoons, but then I did not see much humor in the Danish ones. However this is a much more civilized way to respond.

I don't like the humor either, but agree it is way more civilized than a riot!
