"Hard on the heels of the row over the Pope's comments about Islam, a Berlin opera house has triggered another debate about where the boundaries between free speech and multicultural sensitivities should lie. The Deutsche Oper's decision to cancel its production of Mozart's Idomeneo for fear of causing offence to Muslims is simultaneously understandable and reprehensible. The immediate issue, the brandishing of the severed head of Muhammad, is obviously a provocative act - as are the simultaneous brandishings of the heads of Jesus, Buddha and Poseidon." (in The Guardian) . Por cá também no Público.
