Jihad Momani and Hisham Al-Khalidi are sentenced to prison for two months in a Jordanian court because they reprinted three of the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons in the weekly papers Shihan and Al Mehwar.

Hisham Al-Khalidi, editor of Shihan, called on Muslims around the world to be "reasonable' in their reactions to the cartoons:

"Muslims of the world be reasonable. What brings more prejudice against Islam, these caricatures or pictures of a hostage-taker slashing the throat of his victim in front of the cameras or a suicide bomber who blows himself up during a wedding ceremony in Amman?"

Jihad Momani, editor of Al Mehwar, used the cartoons in an article about the condemnation of those cartoons. He was fired.
