Is This The Face Of Islam?

Jordanian editors arrested over Danish cartoon

From BBC News:
Two Jordanian newspaper editors who published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad have been arrested.
Jihad Momani and Hisham Khalidi are accused of insulting religion under Jordan's press and publications law.
Here's what Momani wrote to accompany the cartoon:
"Muslims of the world be reasonable.

What brings more prejudice against Islam, these caricatures or pictures of a hostage-taker slashing the throat of his victim in front of the cameras or a suicide bomber who blows himself up during a wedding ceremony in Amman?"
Or a so-called moderate Islamic government that arrests editors for printing cartoons.
