Michelle Malkin noted the murder of Italian Catholic priest Andrea Santoro in Turkey over the weekend and followed up yesterday with news that a witness heard the alleged murderer shout "Allah Akbar."

Now, a culprit has been caught. And the motive is reportedly--you guessed it--the Muhammad Cartoons. A Muslim high school student killed an Italian Catholic priest and Turkish television reports that the teenager had confessed - BECAUSE OF CARTOONS!!!

A wonderful and holy man of God and peace has been murdered over cartoons. As I said in an earlier post today, quoting from a left-of-center columnist for the Los Angeles Times, Tim Rutten - "It's no longer possible to overlook the culture of intolerance, hatred and xenophobia that permeates the Islamic world."
