Jordanian Paper Publishes Mohammed Cartoons

Amid all the threats of terrorism emanating from Muslim countries over the Jyllands-Posten cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed, one Jordanian paper, al Shihan has published three of the cartoons.

From Middle East Online:
Going against the flow, however, a Jordanian tabloid defiantly published three of the cartoons.

"Muslims of the world, be reasonable," said the editor-in-chief of Al-Shihan in an editorial alongside the cartoons, one of which showed Mohammed with the bomb-shaped turban.

Jihad Momani said he decided to publish the offending cartoons "so people know what they are protesting about ... People are attacking drawings that they have not even seen."
The great service that the Danish cartoons have provided is to provoke a Pavlovian reaction, causing Islamist terrorists all over the world to expose themselves.
