Comparing the "Ground Zero Mosque" and Danish cartoon controversies

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Just a quick one this, as I wanted to share this excellent column by Lawrence Wright that I just read on the New Yorker website, in which he argues that the current "Ground Zero Mosque" (or more accurately, the Park51 Islamic Cultural Centre a few blocks from Ground Zero) controversy is reminiscent of the 2005 Danish Muhammad cartoons controversy, in that both were manufactured by extremists in order to foment division and serve their own ends.
