Buckley's curiously non-illustrated column on the cartoon controversy

William F. Buckley's Protecting Muhammad is up at Townhall. And why doesn't Townhall reprint, or at least provide links to, the Danish cartoons at the center of the controversy? After all, Buckley is questioning "the leverage" given to the world's Muslim population.
The most striking aspect of the controversy is the leverage of the offended Muslim community. Even in the United States, even a publication as venturesome as Slate magazine describes the offending caricatures but is careful not to reproduce them.
Well, okay Bill. Show them. Come on. Whip those bad boys out.

What's the term that Atrios uses? That's right. Wanker.
