Good on everyone of those brave 200 freedom lovers;
CONTROVERSIAL MUHAMMAD CARTOONS APPEAR AT FREEDOM RALLY
LONDON -- About 200 people have turned out for a free-speech demonstration in central London. And some of them carried posters of the controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that infuriated much of the Muslim world.
Protest organizers had originally invited protesters to display the images on banners and T-shirts. But they later withdrew that invitation to avoid alienating sympathetic Muslims.
The reversal prompted hundreds of angry Internet responses from people who called it political censorship.
Some demonstrators showed their support for the cartoons by carrying signs saying “Stop Toonophobia.'' Others draped themselves in Danish flags.
Nine men identified by police as Muslim counter-protesters were escorted away.
