in response to reader comment: Did the protesters see the cartoons?

The strongest protest has been in Afghanistan. Just imagine the situation the country is in. Little or no electricity, hence little or no radio and TV, no internet or email. Awfully few can read a newspaper, if one can find a newspaper and if those papers have capability to produce pictures. They have no access to the cartoons. So, how did they get their information -- at the mosque, probably run by Taliban mullahas.

The whole thing is a political exploitation by the extremists.
