people on this list who are not Danish would have predicted that cartoons
published in a national newspaper would lead to rioting on the streets of
Copenhagen. It is surely common sense that satirical cartoons are going

Excellent example. Anyone who knows anything about Muslims knew that
images of the prophet, of any sort, were sure to cause big trouble. The
hazards of cleverly poking fun at Islam is not rocket surgery.
