A Jordanian paper stands up for free speech

We've seen euro-editors get sacked and now some one in the middle east is stepping up for the Danish Cartoonists. And they do so by putting things in the right perspective

"Muslims of the world, be reasonable," said the editor-in-chief of the weekly independent newspaper Al-Shihan in an editorial alongside the cartoons, including the one showing the Muslim religion's founder wearing a bomb-shaped turban.

"What brings more prejudice against Islam, these caricatures or pictures of a hostage-taker slashing the throat of his victim in front of the cameras or a suicide bomber who blows himself up during a wedding ceremony in Amman?" wrote Jihad Momani.

good for Al-Shihan for putting it in the right place
