Danish embassy torched over theym Mohammed cartoons

Having seen more than one foully horrible caricature of Christian symbols, not to mention the unbelievably foul jokes I read on an avowedly Christian website, I suppose I can empathise with any genuinely upset Muslim type. In his upsetness, I hasten to add, not in any torching of embassies. But if people are going to go around causing a huge hoo-ha about something published in any case a continent away, and doing so violently, then I also empathise with a "na na na na na" reaction of publishing the things wherever possible. Whether it is a healthy reaction or not I have yet to decide.
