Criticizing Caricatures, Peddling ProtocolsFebruary 13, 2006 17:12 by BackSpin Editor
Shop manager Mustapha Said insists that he is respectful of all religions including Judaism.
While he insists he believes in freedom of speech, he is furious about the cartoons caricaturing the Prophet Muhammad.
He argues that slandering any religion should be punishable.
But when it comes to selling the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, he says: “The book is about politics not about religion. I don’t have a problem with books criticising politics.”
At the American University of Cairo, many students agree with Mr Said’s comments.
