Riots in Pakistan

Belmont Club reveals that many of the Danish cartoons were actually published in an Egyptian newspaper during Ramadan (2005). No riots then.

Some Korans were allegedly found in a gutter in Pakistan, leading to riots. Given that there are essentially no non-Muslims in Pakistan, one wonders who put the books there. I suspect the riot leaders.

There was an NPR interview yesterday where the host went on-and-on about how much he personally apologized for the offense the cartoons had caused (his guest was some guy from Pakistan). I would have prefered he discussed why Muslim Imams had made worse cartoons themselves, and how the cartoons were published in Egypt months ago and caused no outrage then.
