Nora, the real reason is "fear".

Reader comment on item: Cartoons and Islamic Imperialism
in response to reader comment: MPLS. Star Tribune Response

Submitted by Janet Ann (Canada), Feb 8, 2006 at 17:21

Yes, Nora. I can believe it. The real reason that the Star Tribune did not reprint those cartoons that Islam deemed offensive is probably the same reason I did not provide my full name when I submit posts to the Daniel Pipes forum and ..... it is probably the same reason that I did not check off the box that would have allowed my email address to be displayed.

Hey, it is probably the same reason that the President of the United States of American as well as other leaders of the free world did not challenge the hypocracy of the Islamic riots.

Nora, that reason is "fear" ..... fear of retaliation. I concede that, alone, I am weak and will cower or hide from the powers of Islam but ..... it is one scary thought that many leaders of the free world are also scared and will appease rather than challenge because they do not possess the strength required to defend their own against the Islamic threat.
