I guess this proves the Danish cartoonists point- that Westerners are self-censoring themselves out of pure fear of violent retribution.

Officials with the world-renowned Deutsche Oper decided late Monday that the show -- an avant-garde remake of Mozart's "Idomeneo" -- could not go on after police warned that it could result in a violent backlash from Muslim fundamentalists. Opera officials said they were worried about a repeat of the worldwide protests that erupted this year after a Danish newspaper published cartoons satirizing Muhammad.

The tactic of the perpetually agrieved Muslims is working- complain long enough, loudly enough and violently enough and they get their way.
