Jerusalem Mayor Uri Lupolianski on Tuesday criticized the Muhammad caricatures published recently by European media. He made the comments at the opening ceremony of a new sports center in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Abu Tor. "Whoever draws cartoons, whether on walls or in newspapers, which are insulting to any religion is committing a despicable act worthy of condemnation," he said, adding that as a religious person he understood the insult felt by Muslims more than anyone. "The Jerusalem council is doing everything it can so that all its citizens can live freely, according to their religious affiliations," he proudly declared.
