A very reassuring price of news

Whaddya know? Apparently the guys who run Wikipedia decided to take a stand for free speech and expression by rejecting over 180,000 emails from Muslims to remove images of the prophet Muhammad.

Keep in mind, these aren't the iconoclastic images of the Danish cartoonists, but rather they are images of miniatures from the 14th century that feature the painted face of Muhammad. I should also mention that these were made by Muslims.

Apparently, these idiots are so dogmatic that they'll deny even their own cultural heritage! The only word I can think to describe such behaviour is "tragic."
