Eleven journalists in five countries face prosecution for publishing Motoons, reports the New York Times. Where are their defenders? Why the silence?

“I keep hearing, ‘Why are liberals silent?’ “ said Said al-Ashmawy, an Egyptian judge and author of books on political Islam. “How can we write? Who is going to protect me? Who is going to publish for me in the first place? With the Islamization of the society, the list of taboos has been increasing daily. You should not write about religion. You should not write about politics or women. Then what is left?”

Good question. You’d expect Western liberals to be making more noise about this.
