I was reading the news today when I saw this…

“At the heart of the protest: 12 caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad first published in Denmark’s Jyllands-Posten in September and reprinted in European media in the past week. One depicted the prophet wearing a turban shaped as a bomb with a burning fuse. The paper said it had asked cartoonists to draw the pictures because the media was practicing self-censorship when it came to Muslim issues.”

Now ask yourself what a normal response is to being offended by a cartoon for a second before you read on.

“Thousands of Syrians enraged by caricatures of Islam’s revered prophet torched the Danish and Norwegian embassies in Damascus on Saturday”

“With their Damascus embassies up in flames, the foreign ministries advised their citizens to leave Syria without delay.”

I don’t think I really have to say anything about this. I guess normal rules of society just don’t apply to these folks.
