Just So European

If you haven't been following this story, you should now. A cartoon from a Danish newspaper depicting the Prophet Muhammad with a lit fuse in his turban has started a Euro-wide controversy. Several big name European papers have reprinted the cartoon after numerous Muslim groups condemned the Danish paper and boycotted Danish goods. Several Islamic nations have withdrawn their ambassadors. Hat tip: Padawan John

Update: I have added a link to the actual cartoon in the above text

New update: A Jordanian paper has published the cartoon and has expressed approval with European newspapers doing so.

I believe that the New York Sun has followes suit, and it might be worth pointing out that the first European newspaper to take this stand was French. Sacre bleu!
