No sooner have I posted the last blog than an old "comrade-in-charms" comes up with his own take at OpEd News - link above.
As editor of the sixties magazine, "Oz", Richard knows all about this. Both his Australian and British editions ended up in the courts as a direct result of published, you guessed it, cartoons. For more about "Oz" follow the link left to my Homepage" then pursue "Counterculture" for history.
Richard's article also includes a link to this gallery. Full of artwork depicting the prophet, some of them downright rude and of Islamic origin, it proves what I said earlier - Islam itself has not always proscribed religion in artistic expression.
