Buy Danish.

Could these cartoons be the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of WW III? France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, and Spain join the fray:

As I just told a good friend of mine in e-mail, I think Europeans have been waiting a long time to find an unambiguous case where they could scold Middle Easterners. Europeans are often reluctant to criticize, say, the participants in the recent Paris riots, because European governments' policies and the acquiescence of the citizenry partially helped set the stage for such incidents. But in this case, anyone who sides with the Western, liberal notion of freedom of speech has the irrefutable moral high ground. Europeans appear to be reveling in it.

The intelligentsia may be reveling in it, but I bet ordinary folk are terrified. There are a LOT of Muslims in Europe and they have the religious OK to be violent if they feel their religion is under attack. No turning of the cheek for them.

This thing is really heating up:

If they are chanting "Death to France" in Pakistan, can it really be all bad?
But seriously, I can't think of a single time that I have seen Mohammed depicted in a political cartoon or otherwise. What the US Newspapers should do is all publish the cartoons both so we can see what the hub bub is about and to show support for the papers that started it.
Meanwhile, I am starting to lose a little weight and we have this "buy danish" craze. I don't need cheese rolls for breakfast.

Stewdog, I've got Danish friends and they aren't fat. There must be something Danish you can eat that won't blow your diet.

Meanwhile, you can see the cartoons at Human Events online
