Cause when the people think of the Prophet, they think of Saddam????

Europe self-censorship efforts have begun, and as expected, they manifested themselves in an attempt that shows that those who are so quickly willing to be tolerant of everything are incredibly stupid. A Saddam sculpture was banned by a belgian mayor, because it could offend some people. Proving once and for all that the Belgians can not differntiate between the Prophet and any arab man, let alone Saddam Hussein. A sculpture of a tied-up Saddam Hussein floating in a water tank was banned by the mayor of a western Belgian town because it was deemed too controversial, an official said Monday The sculpture, by Czech artist David Cerny, was to be displayed in the coastal town of Middelkerke during the Beaufort 2006 arts festival starting April 1.

But Middelkerke Mayor Michel Landuyt banned the sculpture from being displayed, fearing the possible reaction, said Leo Coulier, secretary of the Middelkerke town hall.

"It is a controversial, potentially explosive thing," Coulier said.

Yeah, contreoversial for Baathists, who are douchebags that no one likes and who are all located in Iraq. After all, they might boycott your waffles. Are you high or are you really that stupid? This better not be the case with all belgians, or i am going to start thinking that Van Damme was more than just an unfortunate accident.

Maybe it's just me.. I actually find the sculpture more tasteless and offensive than the cartoons.

Still wouldn't blow up an embassy over it.. just my opinion.

I saw this article earlier today & I had the exact same thoughts.
Were I muslim, I'd be offended that they think I'm that fuc**ing stupid.
That mayor is a major douchebag!

In Belgium the Frenchies and the Wallies hate each other so much that the Arab population actually balances things out. If the Arabs of Belgium freak out, absolute chaos could ensue! or maybe not...

Message from a Czech citizen in Spain:
Cernej: zmrdej je...
This artist once said that ALL art has political background. Well, i think it's the artist's style... People, please, google around a little and you will find that this is not the first, nor the heaviest case of provocation made by David Cerny. But this time, he has been stopped too much earlier (unluckily).
Censoreship sucks!
If the only way to disarm the Retards is to laught at them, then so it be!
