Islam and censorship

It is utterly infuriating that the basis for publishing an article or not should be fear. I understand respect, deference and good ol' common sense. I do not understand fear and censorship. I will not publish any defamatory cartoon to give examples, although examples abound. The virulence of some of the images published in middle eastern newspapers shocks me, a well weathered cynic, but does not drive me to burn their flags or declare fatwas. Is it not sufficient that i have to see images and read about Islamic women's condition, now we have to kow tow to the scissors of their censors. Enough!!!!

Why is the relationship between this this administration and the english language so bad? Is it in deference to Bush's well know and documented difficulties?To give an example of what could perfectly construe a Bushism:
"Anti-Muslim images are as unacceptable as anti-Semitic images, as anti-Christian images or any other religious belief," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters.
