Avoid Trafalgar Square

Avoid Trafalgar Square this coming Saturday (11 February 2006), because a large rally will be taking place there: "United against Incitement and Islamophobia" organised by the Muslim Council of Britain and the Muslim Association of Britain and supported by our own "Red Ken", a one-man band of political correctness.
Hopefully this will be a non-violent protest, but I wouldn't bet on it. A British magazine - The Liberal, in its seventh issue and with a print run of only 25,000 - has just published one of those cartoons. Scotland Yard called an emergency meeting to discuss this development.
The rally organizers want to think of themselves as "mainstream" Muslims, not extremists; but demanding that the whole of humanity obeys the laws of Islam seems extreme to me. Jews have a similar prohibition against idolatry - their god allegedly killed a community of Jews for worshipping a golden calf -, but you don't find Jews protesting against Michelangelo's depiction of God in the Vatican. They know that their religious laws are for the faithful, not for unbelievers. Even moderate Muslims seen incapable of grasping this simple fact.
