Choke on it

The media are reporting the deliberate burning down of the offices of the French satirical magazine that put a cartoon of mohammed on it’s front page. I don’t think you have to speculate too hard to conclude that this was done by fanatics following the religion of peace. 

Once again however these idiots have not thought things through very well. Had they ignored the magazine it would probably never have been noticed outside France, and even in France it would have faded out of memory fairly quickly. Their actions have now ensured that this image will be accessed and reproduced by millions around the world. The arsonists have ensured that this picture has acquired a certain notoriety and fame, not somehow what I think they set out to achieve. 

The caption, translated, reads “one hundred lashes if you don’t die laughing”
