Quick links

It will be light blogging for the next few days, but a quick round-up of interesting and worthwhile pieces:
Andrew Sullivan, as usual, making sense:
“…when mass-murderers specifically cite Muhammad as the inspiration for their terror, are cartoonists the actual blasphemers for depicting that connection - or the murderers they are criticizing? If Islamists blaspheme their own faith on a daily basis, then the West has every right to illustrate that fact. With no apology needed. What we're seeing here is the emergence of a special dispensation for Islam in the West - to be free from the kind of rough treatment accorded every other faith. The only rational justification for such a double standard is that Islam is somehow more sacred than Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, and the like.”
And from across the ocean, an excellent article on the difference between Islamists and Rush Limbaugh fans.
