It is certainly a new development and I see your final remarks as correct. The Muslims are seeing how the Muslims in other countries have the power to change or even deny the truth about their true selves. When a entire world can be held hostage by a group of people who threaten to destroy anyone or any publication who dared to show the cartoons that were not near as ugy as free countries can publish about their poiliticians or chruch leaders.

Freedom of expression is our greatest freedom, without it we are simply living in a facist state. The refusal to publish the cartoons was a huge stop backward in free countries.

Are we at last getting frightened? Watching France? Having learned and seen the facts about the great number of angry young men within the Musllim world and more to the point, the western world.
