Some Muslims who came to Italy for economic reasons are offended by a fresco that depicts the prophet Mohammed burning in hell, as described in canto 28 of Dante's Inferno, where the 9th circle of hell is reserved for "...the sowers of scandal, schismatics, and heretics, are seen with their limbs maimed or divided in different ways. Among these the Poet finds Mohammed, Piero da Medicina, Curio, Mosca, and Bertrand de Born." The muslims wanted the government to remove renaissance artwork, because it offended them. When the Italians refused, the muslims plotted to attack the church. [url]http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,56014,00.html[/url]

I live in hope that the Left will wake up and see what their promotion of multiculturalism, and the insistant accommodation of foreign values has led to. These people have no true understanding of our societial traditions, how outrageous their demands are, nor even why we took them in in the first place (because under their standards they certainly would never have done the same for us!).

Muslim art critic ? I beleive they criticize art by taking military artillery to it to voice their critiques. [V] Stepped-init
