What Would Mohammed Do?

Now that Iran has called for cartoons "lampooning the holocaust," will we now see Jews around the world storming the embassies of Islamic countries? If they were to follow that up with cartoons of Jesus getting a little something on the side, would Christians fly into violent fits? Well, besides those in the South... And everyone slams atheists without fear of retribution from us.

I was going to stay away from this... it's just so stupid, but human stupidity never fails to amaze and enrage me. Who was it who said that you'd never go broke betting on the stupidity of your fellow man?

C'mon... it's a cartoon.

If the fundamentalist mullahs would allow some real education in their fellow citizens, if the governments would spend a little oil money on education and infrastructure and industry, the so-called protesters with nothing else to do but burn embassies and flags might actually have productive jobs. They might actually contribute to the betterment of their countries and the world.

A little perspective, a little common sense; is that too much to ask?
