Yale University has removed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad from an upcoming book about how they caused outrage across the Muslim world, drawing criticism from prominent alumni and a national group of university professors. Yale cited fears of violence.
Yale University Press, which the university owns, removed the 12 caricatures from the book The Cartoons That Shook the World by Brandeis University professor Jytte Klausen. The book is scheduled to be released next week.

John Y., they care because they were terrorized, [URL=http://answering-islam.org/Authors/Wood/two_faces.htm]]]The Two Faces of Islam . . . Still Smiling[/URL].
Why would Yale University care what the Muslim world thinks? Nobody in their right mind would care what the Muslim world thinks because anybody who is normal would recognize that the Muslim religion is evil.

I guess that when Jesus Christ comes into our life he turns our world upside down, which brings us, of course, the right way up. But the world will still see us as upside down, because although we are now right way up, to them we are upside down, because they are still upside down.
Same sort of hypocritical double-standard Communists have long practiced. Dalton Trumbo, an American filmwriter of the '50s blacklisted for his Party membership in the '40s (whom the Left & PBS can't praise enough for his "martyrdom"), apparently tried to prevent anti-Communist films from being produced: [URL=http://www.reason.com/news/show/27732.html]]]American films ignored life under Communism[/URL]
Totalitarians are in the habit of using civil liberty as a means to their end of denying it to others. Apparently, hypocrisy is only a sin if you're a Christian.

If Yale and other Brtish/UK major media outlets are really that scared to publish these cartoons, then why not just leave out the book in its entirety. Don't have anything to say agaist Islam.
The government can then force all of us to parrot that line that says, "Islam is a religion of peace." Nobody believes it, but were supposed to be politically correct and grit our teeth and look pleasant as we recite these lines. If we don't do this, poor little Habib in Musalmanisthan will blow himself up.
Shame on Yale, a private university which could act independently of government pressure. The cartoons are good and accurate, [url http://michellemalkin.com/2006/01/30/support-denmark-why-the-forbidden-cartoons-matter/][b]Support Denmark: Why the Forbidden Cartoons Matter[/b][/url] A picture or a cartoon is worth a 1,000 words, at least!
