What Now?

If cariactures of Muhammed can cause a backlash across Europe and the Middle East, as well as protests here in the U.S., what will happen now that the Islamists have burned the Danish Embassy in Damascus? How is it that these groups of angry Muslims are literally holding cities in a grip of fear over cartoons? Why are government leaders from all over apologizing for these cartoons when they had nothing to do with them being created, much less being published? The Palestinians in Gaza have literally gone crazy over it. Why is their religion any more important than say, Judaism, Buddism, Taoism, Hinduism or Christianity? I am not saying that they don't have a right to be upset, but to cause such destruction, rioting and fear because of it? What would happen if all religions acted this way when they are offended?
