And the Danish Embassy has been burned. What has made this little drama intriguing is how so few people involved are sympathetic characters.
The cartoons were drawn and published knowing it would be an insult. Those turning to violent demonstrations clearly don't understand the concept of a free and independent media, and the end result is the behavior of some is making the cartoons flawed and insulting portrayal of Islam appear to be valid.
As I said, get over it.
One thing I did find most interesting; Some of the people I know who are loudest in denouncing the Muslims for protesting, have been the loudest in complaining about art that they view sacrilegious, or flag burning.
