Touched a Nerve

Islam has been insulted by cartoons in a Danish newspaper. In the US this is not news. At various times, every religion existing here has been subjected to criticism, insult and jokes. Americans are adept at making fun. It is what we do. In a free society. However, this is not an accepted practise in Moslem culture. When people move to a nation such as Denmark, it would be wise to enrich the civilization there and not try to make it just like the country you emigrated from. Burning Danish flags in protest of normal societal behavior will not effect change. It will only accent your own disconnect with the majority of mankind.
