Zan Studio: Palestinian artists show Pope as US warrior

Where is the outrage when Palestinian artists of the Zan Studio of Ramallah depict the Pope in such a disrespectful way?

The IHT reports:
"Police arrested two Tunisians and a Dane of Moroccan descent on Tuesday for planning to kill a cartoonist who drew one of the cartoons printed in a Danish newspaper two years ago that roused a storm of protest in Muslim countries.
Fifteen Danish newspapers reprinted his drawing on Wednesday in protest against the alleged murder plot.
Several hundred Muslims gathered in central Copenhagen on Friday to protest against publication of the cartoon. Most Muslims consider depictions of the founder of Islam offensive.
Social workers said the arrests, the reprinting of the cartoon and protests against its appearance might have fuelled the riots.
Publication of the cartoons two years ago led to protests and rioting in Muslim countries in which at least 50 people were killed and three Danish embassies attacked."
