<nettime> cartoons? come on.

Is this conversation _STILL_ revolving around the inane, ahistorical, simplified
meme that this protest wave is actually about free expression / religious respect?
OMFG. You'd think from the posts on this thread so far that there was no war and
occupation in the region. No permanent military bases. No torture, extrajudicial
killings, death squads. No settler state. No military targeting journalists. and
on and on and on. 

  Can we please shift the conversation from the back and forth of the rights
regime (free speech! freedom of religion! World Leaders Agreed it's Universal!) to
the reality of empire, war, and occupation that is the real fuel for the so-called
'cartoon protests.'
