Muslim Cartoon Vanishes as did the Danish Embassy

Most of the web pages showing the controversial Danish Muslim cartoon are over run or have been taken down. I am empathetic to any group of people including Muslims who take offense for something they feel strongly about, but lets keep things in context.

Is rioting and burning down the Danish Embassy for a simple cartoon the answer? No!

Do these radical protesters gain support by rioting? No!

Does public opinion of Muslims as a whole decline over incidents like this? Yes!

In a semi-none related story:
Egyptians rejected British offer of help to sinking ferry

Why can't we all get along. Is pride so big that death is the only unreasonable alternative?
