Free Speech or Incitement?

        My article is about a French magazine showing a cartoon about the prophet Mohammed. Due to the anti-Islam film there has been tension between the Americans and people in countries such as Libya or Egypt. This cartoon was published in a French magazine with a person who looked very similar to Mohammed. There is now a debate on whether this magazine should be allowed to do this or not.

The staff claims that he was not inciting anything however he was reporting news in a satirical way. The person who made the cartoon says he was trying to add something interesting to an otherwise boring news week. In his opinion he has the freedom to do so and in a lot of Islamic people’s opinion this is wrong and he should not be able to do it.

    This is interesting. I haven’t heard about this, until now. I don’t know what made that French magazine think that it was okay to do something like that.

    I think that the cartoons should be aloud due to freedom of speech. Banning the cartoons from the magazine wouldn’t be fair to the artist, because he didn’t make them with attentions to anger the Muslims

  3. This is very interesting. It’s funny how in America it wouldn’t matter, because we have freedom of the press. Although it’s unfortunate for them, it’s interesting to see the difference between our country and other countries.
