Images from a show at Harper College (IL). Show was removed as it offended Muslim students.

Must be nice to be a member of the dominant religion; they'd never remove something because it offended Christians.

On the other hand, no one would be likely to bomb a Serrano exhibit.

Anyway, listen to this crap from the artist...

As my sisters and their daughters demanded in their courageous gathering outside the Tehran University’s main gate on March 08, 2005; women’s rights IS human rights, women’s freedom is equality for everyone.

Obviously, this guy needs multicultural sensitivity training... Freedom, equality, universal women's rights apply only to western women; the victims of beautiful anti-western cultures are, well, on their own. Democratic rights and idealistic platitudes end at the cultural frontier.

Moslem Attitudes toward Christians
When I was in the Army, an officer stationed in Turkey, the Chaplain arrived at my unit to hold a nondenominational Christian service.I got the Turkish servants out of the house and locked the door. The Turks didn't mind us holding Christian services for ourselves, but involving Turks in Christian affairs was definitely a no-no. The Turks are very tolerant by Moslem standards.
