At the crux of the idiotic outrage by Muslims over a cartoon is the following:
"A Danish government can never apologize on behalf of a free and independent newspaper," he said. "This is basically a dispute between some Muslims and a newspaper."
If I wrote that I wiped my arse with the Koran, George Bush wouldn't be responsible. Of course, they don't see the difference because there is no such thing as a free and independent press in most of the Middle East. The outrage over this demonstrates exactly how backward much of the Muslim society is.
That they get more upset over a cartoon, than by the extreme acts of violence carried out in the name of Allah, is pretty revealing.
