FO News Update: February 17, 2009

Today we lead with an FO Special Feature on Religion. One by one the stereotypes come crashing down:
  • "The founder of an Islamic television station in upstate New York aimed at countering Muslim stereotypes has confessed to beheading his wife, authorities said." (M)
  • We've come a long way since Michelangelo's statue of Moses. Now even the evil-investor-devil-Jew-toy is horn-free. (M)

  • A Catholic priest boycotted a shop where Jews (turns out not) sell saint candles with a black man's picture on them. Sales have tripled, of course. (M)

In other news:

  • FO: Pakistan, it's sovereignty over land that allows you to govern the people on it. Pakistan: We know why we have sovereignty over land. FO: We don't think you do. (P)
  • If the 20th century teaches anything, it's that the most bitter of enemies can come together as allies. You'll just have to expect the occasional Freudian slip. (P)
  • Dwight Schrute takes up the cause of the Iranian Baha'i on CNN.com. And if I have anything to say, I have to do it through an iReport. Talk about repression . . . (P)
