Kowtowing to threats, or disrespect?

Here's a piece from the Times which is, I think, a little soft on the muslim, as is usual for mainstream sources. What this is really about is allowing members of a certain religion to threaten us into submission. This is really about liberal society, and an attack upon it. It is about free speech. To allow a segment of the world's population to burn embassies, threaten Danes with extermination against the backdrop of silence from a US President who ostensibily went into Iraq to fight such forces, is the most disgusting thing I have seen in a long time. Satire plays a crucial role in our civilization, and we should defend it to the death, because once that goes, then so does everything else.
