Now Do You See Why You Are Wrong Denmark?

A Jordanian editor, who was fired after publishing three of the cartoons depicting Muhammad, has been arrested. The cartoons ran beside commentary suggesting that Islamist terrorism is likely the cause of more anti-Islamic sentiment than a few pictures. See, if Denmark had only taken this path, all of the violence could have been avoided.

In an effort to show that the cartoonists were wrong and spread the message that Islam is a peaceful and loving religion, Syrians have set fire to the Danish and Norwegian embassies.

And Iran has said that they are considering abandoing trade deals with any country in which the cartoons have been published. Perhaps Iran has just decided to go the route of pre-emptively sanctioning itself, before the rest of the world gets around to it.

Meanwhile, the cartoonists who drew the cartoons have gone into hiding (link via Damian Penny). I can't for the life of me think why.
