"International Day of Anger" over Mohammed cartoons.

Something tells me that this won't be just a simple protest.

Here is a slideshow of the Mohammed cartoons that are causing such an uproar.

The Telegraph has this:

Day of anger threatened over cartoons of ProphetBy David Rennie, Europe Correspondent and Tim Butcher in Jerusalem(Filed: 03/02/2006)
David Rennie: Full text of interview with Danish Muslim activist
A leading Islamic cleric called for an "international day of anger" today over publication of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed, and a Danish activist predicted that deadly violence could break out in Europe "at any minute".

I can totally relate to being angry over something like this that demeans one's faith. It happens to Christians all the time. But my first thought is never to censor because I live in a land of freedom. If you get angry, you let them know and they can (and usually do) apologize and try and make it right (the Tole cartoon nonwithstanding).

Welcome to the world of radical Islam, where you cannot speak your mind if it disagrees with their belief. They don't predict protest or boycott like we would here. No, it's "deadly violence."

"A day of anger" might be a lesson to all of us about the level of tolerance there.
