PAKISTANI DOCTORS: NO MORE EUROPEAN MEDICINE

This is nuts:

http://michellemalki...
MULTAN, Pakistan (AFX) - The Pakistan Medical Association has vowed not to prescribe medicines from firms based in some European countries where controversial cartoons portraying the Prophet Mohammed were published, said Shahid Rao, the body's general secretary for Punjab province.
The association will boycott drugs from Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, Germany and France to protest the 'blasphemous' drawings, Rao said.
'We have taken a unanimous decision and it will be immediately implemented in Pakistan,' Rao told AFP.
'Doctors in the country are very motivated on this issue,' he said. 'We would use alternate medicines in future till a public apology comes from these countries.'
Pharmacists have also vowed not to sell such medicines, Rao said.
The association is advising patients against using medicines from the offending countries if they are mistakenly prescribed by doctors, he added.

Our friend Derek has a warning placed on his blog by Google.

Derek posted an editorial graphic of Mohammed.

Now Derek's site is under a warning.

I am outraged.

Please support Derek and all others who exercize their right and your right to free speech.

Just wanted to suggest that everyone pay the author of that cartoon a visit at his Web site www.filibustercartoons.com
I've read a lot of his stuff and it's generally very good.

In many satires, there is an element of truth.

Perhaps a more toned down cartoon, questioning all of the innocent blood of civilians -- women and children, killed while superior Israeli military technology was targeting "ticking terrorists" might be more on point?

Perhaps the Israeli military did not "intentionally" target innocents, but at some point, they must accept overbredth in killings, and adapt their procedures accordingly.

Perhaps a monetary retribution to all of the people killed who were not deliberately targeted, as well as monetary compensation for the "absentee" properties confiscated, could make Israel's policies seem a little more just. (And it might help save $$$ and lives in the long run, considering what is spent now on the tit-for-tat killings.)

I am not defending terrorist suicide bombs that kill innocent Israeli civilians -- women and children too -- but at some point, surely Israel will realize her "defensive" policies are not effective?

It's not about cartoons; it's about lives. I hope the Israelis love their children too. (re. nuclear weapons in the region. Nobody wins that kind of war, remember?)

I fail to see what any of your comment has to do with the cartoon i posted, but not to worry.

"surely Israel will realize her "defensive" policies are not effective?"

ok, let's compare

1939-1945 [Jews not allowed to defend themselves] : upwards of 6 million Jewish civilians slaughtered by Jew-haters

1948-2006 [Jews allowed to defend themselves under the banner of the IDF] : < 10,000 Jewish civilians slaughtered by Jew-haters

seems like it's working to me
