Danish cartoonists tame compared to Arab media

After reading ad nauseum about how insensitive we all are to Middle Eastern values and we must improve, I took the liberty of doing a google search for "Arab Cartoons"

What I found makes their righteous indignation over the relatively tame cartoons downright ridiculous.

UPDATE: Silent Running has some as well. 

Picture 1
A Jewish devil – possibly Ariel Sharon – walks over the skulls of its victims.
 
Picture 2
Restating the blood libel myth: a jackbooted, bloody-handed Ariel Sharon lusts after the blood of Arab children while crushing peace. The Arabic in the background says "Gaza."
 

Picture 3
from Algmoria (Egypt). (December, 12, 2001)
 
Picture 4

Akhbar al-Khalij, November 9, 2003 "The Arab world" is given as the first meal after sunset during the month of Ramadan "the American democracy" and "Bush’s speech". "The Arab world" is saying: "But I want to eat a dish of meat, bulgur, sopped bread and broth". The sandwich contains the Jewish snake, decorated with the Star of David.

 

Picture 5

Akhbar al-Khalij, January 29, 2006 (Bahrain) As the Islamic world reacted with anger to caricatures of Muhammad in a Danish newspaper, this cartoon claimed the controversy was a result of “The Penetration of Zionism to Denmark.” The cheese, shaped like a Star of David, is labeled “Danish products.” The text on the far left reads, “Boycott it!”
 
Picture 6

The Star of David superimposed on the Third Reich flag.
 
Picture 7

Ar-Riyadh, August 9, 2003 The devil represents "the Zionist lobby".
 
Picture 8

This must surely be insulting to George Bush who is a committed christian and clearly depicts "God" as the almighty dollar…
 
So what we see is the sanctimonious indignation of the Muslim world while their own cartoonist use images of snakes, devils, god and nazism to bring their point of view to the world.
 
There is a word for this type of action.
 
The word is hypocrisy.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
