Syrian Muslims Torch Denmark and Norway Embassies

This from the BBC with a h/t to Right Nation.

Syrians have set fire to the Norwegian and Danish embassies in Damascus in protest at the publication of newspaper cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
Protesters scaled the Danish site amid chants of "God is great", before moving on to attack the Norwegian mission.

Denmark and Norway condemned Syria for failing its international obligations and urged their citizens to leave.

The cartoons have sparked Muslim outrage across the world, following their publication in a Danish paper.

One depicts Muhammad as a terrorist. Any images of the Prophet are banned under Islamic tradition.

However, several European papers reprinted the cartoons, citing free speech.

The publications have prompted diplomatic sanctions, boycotts and death threats in some Arab nations.
Mob lunacy is alive and well in Muslim culture. It is time for clear thinking Muslims to head this off. If it is left to the non-Muslims to clean this up there truly will be a war on Islam.

These next couple of days hold great potential to be very ugly.
