I notice in this morning’s N&R that Greensboro’s Islamic community is seeking an apology from Willy Hammer and The Rhino Times for publishing those two controversial cartoons last Thursday. From what I know of the Hammer boys, it will be a cold day in hell when that happens. Unless…
Since it is reported that Mayor Holliday is attempting to “broker an apology” between the Islamists and the Hammers, I have a suggestion that just might sway The Rhino to do just that.
In exchange for an apology from the Rhino, our Mayor should suggest to our community’s Islamic leaders that it would be proper for them to issue a simultaneous and reciprocal condemnation of
and an apology for, (edited: see comments) all of the killing and violence that occurs in the name of The Prophet. If this were to be agreed upon I suspect The Rhino would fall all over themselves to issue a sincere apology for ever having offended Islamic sensibilities.
Let there be peace on earth… let it begin in Greensboro.
Update 7:00p: The cartoons are posted on the front page of the Rhino’s week-late electronic edition.
