    ...that Islamic offense resulted in the burning of embassies, calls for the execution of the author, marches through world capitals (dressed as suicide bombers in some cases), the disply of 'Death to Bush/Blair/Israel' or 'Nuke London/New York/Tel Aviv' banners, the exhibition of over 200 holocaust cartoons in Iran (still showing) following a competition, and billions of dollars lost for an innocent Danish dairy company etc. etc. The Jews of Bombay offense resulted in them asking the shop owner if he could change the name and him agreeing after seeing how upset they were. The problem is not that the Mulsims took offense to the cartoons, but how they reacted to them. Don't even try to compare the two cases, they are in no way alike.
