"Working to offend an entire population of people who have been in the cross hairs of imperialism and brutality for years" - 'working' being the key word. The cartoons were deliberately published to offend, in the full knowledge that they would be offensive, in a country where anti-Muslim racism is rife. To deliberately reproduce these is to deliberately join in insulting an oppressed section of society. This is precisely about power: racists have the power to insult and abuse Muslims, and they are expected to simply put up with it, and abused when they react to racist bullying. And you have deliberately chosen to take the side of the racist bullies and abusers.
