Is this Spectator Magazine cover racist?

Well, Duh…that would have to mean that Muslims are a race. Since they aren’t, it isn’t.

Al-Jazeera  The just-released cover of the UK’s The Spectator magazine is being called racist by many on Twitter. The January 25 edition of the magazine, which prides itself on an undiminished “taste for controversy”, features two caricatures, presumably meant to represent Iran and Saudi Arabia, holding a sword and gun to each other’s throats. The illustration promotes an article by Douglas Murray entitled, “Iran, Saudi Arabia, and the Middle East’s 30 year war: Why the Sunni-Shia conflict is getting closer to the surface.”
