It's official: everything offends Muslims

Posters with the phrase "America's latest hero is a Muslim straight out of jail" has been banned from the Tube by London Underground (LU).

LU said it will not show the posters from a �1m advertising campaign for new TV series Sleeper Cell until creators remove the word Muslim from the text. . . .

An LU spokeswoman said: "Following consultation with Viacom, who manage advertising on the Tube, it was decided to ask for the words 'is a Muslim' to be removed.

"This decision was taken in line with our standard policies, which seek to avoid gratuitously insulting large groups of Londoners."

Six months from now, we won't even be calling them "Muslims." They will be "Those We Do Not Speak Of," and we will only be allowed to approach them wearing the "safe colour."

Meanwhile, on Bizarro World . . .

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi addressed a panel of academics in the U.S. and tells them that Libya is the only real democracy in the world. . . .

He boasts that Libya's political system is superior to "farcical" and "fake" democracies in the West.

He says, "There is no state with a democracy except Libya on the whole planet."

So says a tinpot dictator who has ruled Libya since he seized it in a military coup in 1969 and used to send hit squads abroad to assassinate dissidents. You gotta laugh.
