The Blanket

About the possible posting of the Muslim cartoons



Devin Leonard • 13 March 2006

I am a 26 year old former US Marine, and proud Irish-American supporter of Sinn Fein, the IRA and the Republican movement. I am a AOH, NORAID and "Friends Of Sinn Fein" member as well. I respect this publication, but would ask that the Muslim cartoons not be re-posted. I agree that these cartoons were out of line and offensive, and it was wrong for them to have been published. But this will only cause more innocent Muslims, Christians and Jews to be hurt. Us Irish Americans will always support you guys and the cause of a United Ireland, so I hope you will take this view into consideration.
