To the Editor:
Re “Silenced by Islamist Rage” (editorial, Feb. 25):
I find it ironic that you claim solidarity with moderate Muslim journalists who have been silenced by the continuing controversy over cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad. Unlike these courageous proponents for free speech, many of whom have received death threats for publishing these images, The Times has yet to print any of the notorious caricatures.
How are we as readers to evaluate this story fully when The Times is unwilling to take the same risks as the people you laud?
