Cartoon War, Italian style

Keep it coming:

ROME, APRIL 16, 2006 (Zenit.org).- Opus Dei described as "deplorable" the publication of a cartoon showing the prophet Mohammed in hell, published by the magazine Studii Cattolici, edited by one of its members.

The cartoon, based on a passage of "The Divine Comedy," shows Italian poets Dante Alighieri and Virgil on the edge of a circle of flames looking down on Mohammed, whose body is cut in half. Dante comments that the prophet is cut in half because of the division he brought to society.

It will argued how this is just piling on. Maybe it is. But people out there still need to understand freedom of speech, and learn how not to kill people that draw a cartoon.
UPDATE: Michelle Malkin posts the offending cartoon:
