Shocked and dismayed at this simplistic effort

  • Comment

The atrocities of the New York and Washington bombings gave us all much to contemplate and the shock waves around the globe have stimulated a serious debate on the New World Order.

So I was shocked and dismayed at the obvious lack of sensitivity shown by Hellman's cartoon. To make the simplistic equation of terrorism to religious conflict shows a naivety that even George Bush does not possess.

Not only does this type of comment miss the point entirely, it also serves to further alienate the Islamic community.

How a respected publication can permit such irreverence is scandalous, especially at a time when we would expect understanding of an already misrepresented Islamic world.

I hope this type of irresponsibility is not repeated and that complex and sensitive issues are dealt with in a manner that is fitting in future.

I, like all of my fellow Muslims, would like to extend my sympathy and condolences to all of those affected by the horrors of September 11.
