Islam Means "To Submit" . . . So, You Cartoonists . . . SUBMIT . . . NOW!

Several days ago Daniel Pipes published a cogent essay on the subject of the Muhammed Cartoon Controversy. The article, entitled "Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism," provides an insightful context for the current unrest.

With remarkable accuity, Pipes summarizes the situation in this way:
The deeper issue here, however, is not Muslim hypocrisy but Islamic supremacism. The Danish editor who published the cartoons, Flemming Rose, explained that if Muslims insist "that I, as a non-Muslim, should submit to their taboos...they're asking for my submission."
That's it in a nutshell. "Memo to the West: Submit to Muslim law, tradition and culture as we interpret it or we will kill you, boycott your products and burn down your embassies."

For the radical Islamists who are fanning the flames of this non-controversy, the words "Islam" and "submission" mean just one thing for the non-Muslim world: "oppression."

There is only one way to respond to demands such as these: "Just Say No!"

And don't forget to support Denmark by buying anything that has that nation's name on the label.
