"it could incide acts of violence by a small radical segment"


If it's just a "small radical segment", then why are they worried? No one is worried about neo nazis complaining about portrayal of Hitler

Think about that. Just four years after Perl Harbor two mushroom clouds emerged over Japan and fascism was history. Roman salute is still, to this day illegal in Germany. It's been seven years since 9/11 and what do we have? Cartoon riots, murder of Theo Van Gogh and now this . We aren't even correctly identifying the problem.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think that wast Islamic revolution is possible, but things are likely to get very very nasty if we continue pretending that problem doesn't exist.
