The Danish newspaper cartoon controversy - part 2

Ok, not so much of a controversy, although some people might be offended by this.

The amazing Mazen Kerbaj is publishing a series of cartoons - simultaneously - in a Danish and Lebanese newspaper. The Danish paper is called 'The Information', and in Lebanon, it's appearing in Al Akhbar.

Here are a couple of quotes from a couple of his sketches:

"Everything is cheap here, cigarettes, alcohol, kalashikov."

"Censorship? Never? You can say whatever you want...it's won't be censored. Maximum, you get killed."

The whole series can be found on Mazen's excellent blog.
