This from the Daily Times of Pakistan (hat tip: Michelle Malkin):

ISLAMABAD: The government has blocked all websites that carry caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) on the Internet, and the attorney general has been asked to explore legal avenues for implementing a global ban on these sites.

A three-member bench, consisting of Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry, Justice Javed Buttar and Justice Mian Shakirullah Jan, issued notices and directed the attorney general to inform the court next Monday as to how it could prevent access to such objectionable material on the internet worldwide. The bench was jointly hearing the petition of Dr Mohammad Imran Uppal and Maulvi Iqbal Haider, seeking a complete blockage of sites carrying the cartoons and their depictions.


Advocate Qamar Afzal stated in his arguments that the availability of the caricatures on the Internet, which have hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims worldwide, should be declared “intellectual terrorism”. Maulvi Iqbal Haider stated that though the site had been blocked, the sacrilegious cartoons could still be accessed through various search engines. Advocate Ibrahim Satti, counsel for Iqbal Haider, also stated that an FIR on the availability of the sacrilegious material under blasphemy laws had not been registered by the concerned police station, despite the court’s orders.

Notice how they are not content with banning any site where the cartoons can be viewed from Pakistan. They want a worldwide ban. You and I shouldn’t be able to view the cartoons any more than a Pakistani should.

These are “moderate Muslims” and our allies in the GWOT (they also have the bomb).

This is another example of the massive sense of entitlement that Muslims walk around with. The entire rest of the world must shape itself to their desires and rewrite its laws and reorder its culture to avoid giving offense to Islam.
