Cartoon Jihad! A silly question..

Is it too much to ask for peaceful protests and no threats of violence? We're talking about silly cartoons for crying out loud.

Tens of Thousands Rally Against Cartoons (H/T Atlus Shrugs)

KARACHI, Pakistan - Tens of thousands of people massed in Pakistan and Turkey on Sunday to protest cartoons of Islam's Prophet, Muhammad, that have fired anger throughout the Muslim world.

It would be fine if it ended there, but of course...

About 50,000 people, many chanting "Hang those who insulted the prophet," rallied Sunday in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi. The protesters burned the Danish flag, hit an effigy of
President Bush with a stick and chanted "Death to America" and "Death to Musharraf."


Some cartoon protests in Pakistan have turned deadly and at least five people died in two Pakistani cities in rioting last month.

Radical Islamists in Pakistan oppose Musharraf for his cooperation with the United States in the war on terrorism.

"Both Musharraf and his master Bush are killers of Muslims," said Maulana Fazlur Rahman, parliamentary opposition leader and a senior figure in the religious alliance.

So, let me see if I get this right. Mr. Rahman doesn't harangue about Saddam killing Muslims or either Z boy doing and advocating the same, but has a problem with Islamofascists being killed. Swell priorities you have there Mr. Rahman.

My reaction to threats of violence over cartoons:


Of course, that isn't as attractive as Pamela at Atlus Shrugs but it still makes the point. I will not submit.
