Jew, know your enemy

Dispatch International 4 January 2013
By Jeppe Samuel Cholewa Juhl

”When two Jews are gathered in a room, there will be at least three opinions.” So goes the saying that we used to laugh at in my youth when we were sitting around the dinner table.

Essentially the saying is very positive. It reflects Judaism’s taste for discussion and its willingness and ability to change. Jewish intellectual curiosity, joie de vivre and taste for innovation are legendary and have contributed mightily to mankind’s advancement within practically every imaginable field. The world would have been a poorer place without the Jewish people.

Is This Blasphemy?

Gates of Vienna 4 January 2013

We’ll soon find out. The French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo has done it again: it has published cartoon images of the prophet Mohammed. This time there are no jokes, unless you count those silly faces on the people and the camels as jokes. Mohammed is treated soberly, and with great respect. No lewdness. No fart jokes. No genitalia.

And no slander! Just the facts, ma’am.

Whether the Mohammed comic book will earn a fatwa remains to be seen. For those who are interested, the comic may be purchased at the online shop for Charlie Hebdo.
