Melissa kindly came to my rescue when I asked for a post on the Teaching Demonstration. I made the classic mistake of assuming the students had read the assigned text, based my entire lesson plan on discussion of the reading, and then had to stand there in the excruciatingly painful silence of a roomful of non-participants for most of 50 minutes. Thanks, Melissa, for sharing the insights that will prevent this from happening to others.
Photographs show Muslims protesting cartoon depictions of the prophet Muhammad. The trigger for the latest clash of cultures was the publication by the Danish newspaper Jyllends-Posten on September 30  of 12 cartoons of Muhammad.
A biographer of the prophet had complained that no one would dare to illustrate his book, and the newspaper challenged cartoonists to draw pictures of the prophet in a self-declared battle for freedom of speech. One submission showed Muhammad wearing a bomb-shaped turban; in another he tells dead suicide bombers that he has run out of virgins with which to reward them.
Any portrayal of Muhammad is blasphemous in Islam, lest it encourages idolatry. But the issue began to boil [in January ] after the cartoons appeared in Magazinet, a Christian newspaper in Norway, and on the website of the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet.
Clearly, some of these placards are incitement to violence, and indeed incitement to murder — an extremely serious offence which the police must deal with and deal with quickly. Whatever your view on these cartoons, we have a tradition of freedom of speech in this country which has to be protected.
Certainly there can be no tolerance of incitement to murder. But it is totally unacceptable that, on British soil, there should be thugs demonstrating for people to be beheaded and actually glorifying the atrocities of July 7.
Other Muslims maintained the protesters were extremists not representative of mainstream British Muslims: Asghar Bukhari, chairman of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee, said the demonstration in London should have been stopped by police because the group had been advocating violence.
As the clamour for action grew, police sources said there were no arrests because of fears of a riot. A senior Scotland Yard officer said: If we went in to arrest one person with a banner the crowd would turn on us and people would get hurt.A rally and counterprotest are scheduled for Saturday, August 26, at a Confederate memorial on 17th Street in Fort Sanders.
While the demonstration is not on university property, members of the campus community may be in the area and should stay aware of their surroundings and their personal safety.
