Controversial Cartoons...(Deux)

Some in the Islamic world have opted for a "freedom of expression" in response to the publication of the controversial cartoons under "freedom of speech"

The headlines of today quotes:
A Pakistani Muslim cleric and his followers have offered rewards amounting to over $ 1 million for killing the Danish cartoonists who drew caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad that have enraged the Muslim world.

Cleric Maulana Yousef Qureshi, said in his interview: "If the West can place a bounty on Osama bin Laden and Zawahri, we can also announce reward for killing the man who has caused this sacrilege of the holy Prophet"

Denmark has already shut its missions in Lebanon, Syria, Iran and Indonesia.
