Sue 'em

Ynetnews reported A Swedish Muslim group on Tuesday said it plans to sue a local newspaper for publishing a drawing of the Prophet Muhammad with a dog's body. The Nerikes Allehanda newspaper in Orebro printed the cartoon

made by artist Lars Vilks in an August 19 editorial that criticized Swedish art galleries for not displaying Vilks' art.
Maybe they did not display it because it is lousy art.
Mahmoud Aldebe, chairman of the Swedish Muslim Federation, said the group would sue the newspaper for inciting hatred against ethnic groups.
What ethnic group is Islam. I thought it was a religion.
"It ridicules our religion.
If this stupid drawing ridicules your religion, then it is ridiculous.
This is discriminating and insulting... they want to see just how far they are able to go by pushing the boundaries of press freedom," he said. (AP)
