Jews dragged into cartoon controversy

Non-Jews slander non-Jewish prophets and then come to hang the Jews, one could say of the latest, ugly twist in the Danish cartoon controversy, paraphrasing one of Menachem Begin's most famous lines.

A Belgian-Dutch Islamic political organization, the Arab European League, posted anti-Jewish cartoons on its Web site in response to the cartoons of the prophet Mohammed that appeared in Danish papers last year and offended many Moslems, unleashing violent demonstrations around the Islamic world.

With governmet approval, in government controlled newspapers, I might add.
Even those governments that are supposed to be our 'allies'. When confronted, they cry 'free press', yet when other nations exercise their rights to freedom of press, well you know what happens......

Wow, they're worried about cartoons

when established Islamic organizations have repeatedly called for the DEATHS of Jews?
Quite frankly, if you got rid of most Muslims the world would be a safer and more peaceful place.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
