Orchestrated by, I'm betting, Syria.
It's so odd, those silly cartoons, published months ago. Then they were provided by some Muslim or another.
It's part of the War on Terror...how they fight. As if.."we'll show you the damage we can do".

You notice the real 'outrage' didn't start until Hamas won the election!
You are absolutely correct.
The guys who started this themselves created 3 more highly offensive cartoons that they falsely claimed were published. One involved Mohammed with a pig snout and one a dog copulating with a praying Moslem.
None of the cartoons came anywhere near that in offensiveness.
If much milder cartoons were so outrageous for a Danish cartoonist, it should have been even more so for some Imam, yet it was ok for him in order to incite violence. No one is going after him.
I agree. There's a sense of calculated escalation to these events. I'm more apprehensive over this than I've been over seemingly bigger issues.
There are a lot of Che-lovers in Damascus.
No, no, no! It was the wily Karl Rove.
