Tunisian blogger A.L.G.Y of Cos-maux-polis is wondering whether a new Mohammed cartoon crisis is brewing [1]. She explains that drawings of a man with the body of a dog wearing a turban were published in a local Swedish newspaper on August, 18th. As protests are underway in Pakistan and Iran, she asks for moderation to prevail and wonders how can protesters be sure that the cartoon really represents the Prophet Mohammed (Fr).
