By KILLING and INJURING people and threatening war, death, and destruction to the Danish, Israel, and the United States.

The issue for this topic is free speech. Should the Danish be allowed to post those cartoons? What should be done now with all of these protests? Is an apology enough?

I think that the printing of the cartoons was wrong. Freedom of speech is a good thing, but it doesn't go as far as letting you insult a billion + people. As for the death threats and stuff, meh, every religion has their kooks. The danish editors should have known better than to do something this dumb with Al Quaeda running around.
