US urges even-handed Muslim criticism of 'hate speech'
AFP - 2 hours, 15 minutes ago
WASHINGTON - The United States urged Muslims angered by newspaper cartoons of the Islamic prophet Mohammed to also condemn frequent anti-Semitic and anti-Christian "hate speech" in the Islamic world. White House spokesman Scott McClellan denounced escalating violence over the drawings, which Muslims say are blasphemous, and urged governments and demonstrators to defuse tensions with "constructive dialogue."
