A local condo association agreed to publish an apology for reprinting an offensive cartoon.
Ok, so I have witnessed the impudent display of reductionism otherwise known as a Jack Higgins cartoon, last Wednesday. I have seen his characterization of the Prophet Muhammad as a sword-wielding, raging lunatic with a mountain of skulls at his trail. I have noted his insinuation that Islam itself inspires the violence we see on our TV screens – as opposed to, say, ignorance, poverty, repression, or radicalization.
Following the Press Conference at 6:00 at the same facility, the Chicago Chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations will hold an open community forum on the cartoons in conjunction with the Chicago Chapter of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). The Public debate and discussion will address many questions related to the controversy and the ensuing reactions around the world.
