Angry Muslims boycott; burn stuff.

Syrian protesters today burned the Danish and Norwegian embassies in Damascus.

I love how this is being painted as a showdown between religion and the press. This is nothing of the sort. The Muslims of the world have every right to boycott, but this is too far. This is an encounter between the press and a bunch of nihilistic thugs who will use any excuse to vent their impotent rage at the West. Religion is just their excuse.

I agree with Voltaire : "To the wicked everything serves as a pretext."
