Cartoon Fun.

The images embedded in the animation above have been much discussed in the news but very few people have actually seen them. The endless discussion of how 'offensive' these cartoons are, combined with the refusal on the part of much of the press to run them so people can form their own opinions, has given the impression -- I would argue the false impression -- that they are animated by a hate-filled, far right xenophobia that would offend the sensibilities of anyone with good taste. I have put up this animation featuring small images of the cartoons to give people a sense of what the cartoons are like. My images are too small to see details and are mostly too small to read the captions (most of which are not in English anyway) but they suffice, I think, to give the general sense of what they are about.

I found the images at this site that displays them in more detail.

Update: Michelle Malkin has a better formatted page to see the original cartoons.
