CATOON INTIFADA UPDATES
'Unveiling' of Danish cartoons fuels dispute on Calif. campus
The panel will also discuss Islamic extremism and provide examples of anti-Western, anti-Christian and anti-Semitic drawings that have appeared in some Middle Eastern newspapers, said Jesse Petrilla, founder of The United American Committee, an event organizer.
