I wonder if a few iconic Islamic related expressions could not also be
included such as burning or threatening to burn a copy of the Koran?
There would have to be scienter, knowing its significance, of course; a
fact that was not present in a recent case in Pakistan where a
developmentally handicapped young woman was charged.
Free speech in the US is, I believe, generally
considered to exclude
both "fighting words" and "shouting fire in a crowded theatre".
