Arab humour

Via Harry's Place, apparently the Arab European League has decided to enter the offensive cartoon business.
"Starting from today AEL will systematically publish daring cartoons produced by our own AEL cartoonist "Nabucho" and breaking many taboos in Europe."
...

"Just like the newspapers in Europe claim that they only want to defend the freedom of speech and do not desire to stigmatise Muslims,we also do stress that our cartoons are not meant as an offence to anybody and ought not to be taken as a statement against any group, community or historical fact."

Head over to Harry's and see the hilarious AEL humour at work: see if you can spot the one that reinforces my belief that this is all about people's worry over the size of their manhood! Strangely, they seem to have decided that the Jews are the ones running all the newspapers, and thus the cartoons are aimed mainly at them. How quaintly Islamic. I refuse to publish these cartoons for the same reason that I refuse to publish the Danish ones, i.e. they're just a bit crap.

Is it just me, or is this all starting to get a little silly...?

Groan. I used the word "childish" in one of my comments on this matter. The AEL just confirmed it. What is this supposed to prove? What is it supposed to achieve? Are we expected to demonstrate? To be offended? I'm not; why should I be? Ye Gods! Pathetic.
