Washington Post Pulls Anti-Islam Cartoon

Monday, 27 August 2007 09:58 PM

The Washington Post and several other newspapers did not to publish Sunday's installment of Berkeley Breathed's "Opus" cartoon that poked fun at Muslim fundamentalists.

In the cartoon, the spiritual fad-seeking character Lola Granola appears in a headscarf and explains to her boyfriend, Steve, why she wants to become a radical Islamist.

According to FOXNews.com, the strips were shown to Muslim staffers at the Post to gauge their reaction, and they responded "emotionally" to the depiction of a woman dressed in traditional Muslim garb and espousing conservative Islamic views.

The cartoon did not appear in print, but it ran on WashingtonPost.com and Salon.com. The next installment will also appear there.

Editors from The Washington Post declined to comment on why they made the decision to pull the two comic strips.
