Qaradawi and Tessa Jowell - separated at birth

One would not think so, but both of them think it acceptable to react to something they have not seen. Jowell decided she did not like the hilarious Brass Eye satire on the paedophile panic, and "was reported as asking the Independent Television Commission to revise its rules to allow such a controversial show to be prevented from broadcast even though she hadn't watched the actual episode of the show". Source.

As to Livingstone's mate Yussuf Al-Qaradawi, his beef was over the Jyllands-Posten's Mohammed cartoons, and "declared 3 February 2006 as ‘Anger Day’ on his TV programme. A wave of violent protests across the globe unleashing followed in the wake of that transmission". Which, one might note, led to considerable bloodshed - around 100 deaths are attributed to the furore "In the documentary [‘Those Damned Drawings’ (‘De Forbandede Tegninger’)], [director Karsten] Kjær shows the Mohammed drawings to Al-Qaradawi, who views them for the first time". The article gives no indication as to how Qaradawi reacted, but "Kjær also shows the cartoons to Ali Bakhsi, the Iranian who spearheaded demonstrations in Tehran that led to the burning of the Danish embassy there. Bakhsi laughingly says the drawings look nothing like Mohammed but rather like an Indian Sikh". Given there are no approved images of Mohammed, how would Bakshi know?

Anyway, those with access to Danish channel DR1 can watch the programme at five past ten on Sunday evening.

Actually, Croydonian, there are plenty of images of Mohammad (the L Ron Hubbard of his day) rendered by muslims and perfectly legal - in Iran. It's no big deal there. There are renderings of Mohammad all over the place and you can buy them in the markets. (According to a friend who lived there for several years.)

Everything drives the Arabs batshit.

The Iranians are Arab? That'll be news to them.
