They were subtle, and did not violate any laws because they did not use the actual verse, just made a reference to it. In a land that values 'freedom of expression' and 'freedom of religion', methinks it should have been applauded. Sadly, there are those who go out of their way to find fault with such expressions.
Only lately has the enemy been a determined and accomplished propagandist, and only lately have our "news" media been determined to help him in the name of "freedom of the press".
We have a discussion going on a the moment about the wisdom of publishing pictures of our soldiers on active duty. A French photographer photographed two SAS soldiers in Kabul, and the NZ Herald
(among many others) ran at least one picture. The New York Times
ran a article mentioning the troops and the country they came from.
One of the soldiers has a Victoria Cross medal for bravery. It would be a propaganda coup for the Taleban if they killed him. They now know where he is, and what he looks like.
