ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I despise and condemn the coarseness and slop that has been brought to the American world of entertainment by the creators of “South Park,” but they become sympathetic figures in the face of the thinly veiled death threats they received from radical Muslims for bringing to television any portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad (“Comedy Central caves to terrorism,” Comment & Analysis, April 26).

Terrorists of the world have made headway in their battle against civilization, as exhibited by the many individuals and institutions that cower in the face of threats from those whose offense manifests itself in murder and the threat of savagery. If there is any light in the darkness delivered by extremists, it is that their nature and the threat they pose to civilization have been exposed.

I never anticipated that I would be offering my support to the vulgarians of “South Park,” but terrorism and its threat make strange bedfellows. I wonder if the world will fight against intolerance or acquiesce, allowing might to triumph over right.
