Oh, those Russians

Neil Addison at MercatorNet on Russia's version of Hello Kitty:
Surely no government has the right to criticise the Russian authorities over this prosecution unless it is prepared to say that the same behaviour would be legal in its country. Certainly the conduct of Pussy Riot would not have been legal in Britain as I have pointed this out in my blog. Had Pussy Riot behaved the same way in Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s, the Central Synagogue or the Central Mosque then they would have been prosecuted for a variety of public order offences.
But really--London's Central Mosque? If this pathetic punk group had tried "performing" in a mosque, they would not have been prosecuted at all-- in fact, they would not have made it out the doors alive.
