What mad world do we live in? The burning is idiotic. A piece of idiocy orchestrated by an attention-seeking cult leader. What follows? A media orgy. Death threats. Warnings of impending violence. But since when must the West bow to extremist threats of violence? Do we have free speech or not? I condemn the man and his acts, but he is free to do it without Western interests being attacked anywhere in the world. Is it asking too much that people examine this man and his past and see him for what he is?? And what is any Muslim group doing even discussing concessions with him? What is the message, offend us and we'll give you something? Madness, all of it.
