I saw this cartoon by Bosch Fawstin (winner of the recent Muhammad cartoon contest) in Mark Steyn's recent column, and thought it was much worth passing along. Fawstin sharply disapproves of Islam generally; but the cartoon itself singles out the sword-wielders, rather than all Muslims, and suggests what our attitude toward the sword-wielders should be—and should not be.

"Stay quiet and you'll be okay" is believed to be Mohammed Atta's line to the passengers on the plane he hijacked on 9/11.
