Meanwhile, Andres Serrano and Chris Ofili Could Not Be Reached for Comment

Good to know that anti-semitism is a "historic" problem:

Former US president Bill Clinton warned of rising anti-Islamic prejudice, comparing it to historic anti-Semitism as he condemned the publishing of cartoons depicting Prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper.

"So now what are we going to do? ... Replace the anti-Semitic prejudice with anti-Islamic prejudice?" he said at an economic conference in the Qatari capital of Doha.

"In Europe, most of the struggles we've had in the past 50 years have been to fight prejudices against Jews, to fight against anti-Semitism," he said.

Clinton described as "appalling" the 12 cartoons published in a Danish newspaper in September depicting Prophet Mohammed and causing uproar in the Muslim world.

Am I to understand that Bill Clinton has now come out in favor of censorship? Remarkable. Before he's done I expect he'll surpass Jimmy Carter as history's greatest monster.
