The Great Cartoon Riots MMVI: next stop London

Groups of aggrieved muslims are protesting in Central London over the cartoons. Rather predictably, they are calling for blood, bombs and beheadings. As I stated in a comment on Daily Propaganda's blog, why protest here in London when our newspapers have not even published the cartoons? They might as well publish them now. If we are going to get the protests, we might as well be shown the cartoons in all their irreverence. Might as well be hung for a sheep as for a lamb. Incidentally, a Jordanian newspaper also published the cartoons. Can we also expect, in the interests of balance, that the protesters also organise something on the streets of Amman? What’s the betting that won’t happen?
