This particuliar issue has caused me to think a bit more about cultural differences. A couple Muslim papers tried to come up with a cartoon that would be equally offensive to western sensiblities to demonstrate the feeling the cartoon caused. What they came up with was an image of Adolf Hitler exiting a bed with Anne Frank, saying"Put that in your diary."
I admit the image is offensive but I would never dream of killing the cartoonist or burning the embassy of the country where he is from. I’ve always figured offensive stuff will be revealed for its true worth(and I confess a sneaking admiration for South Park).
