Copenhagen's Rabbi....

I love this quote from the Rabbi of Copenhagen.
That so many in the Muslim world joined the protests against the pope merely show[s] just how influential Islamist extremist groups have become. [...] [T]here’s no reason to respond to every presumed insult. Consider an example from Denmark. Recently, a paper there published a number of rather tasteless Holocaust cartoons which had been shown in Tehran. The reaction of Copenhagen’s rabbi was instructive when considered against the bloody response to the Muhammad cartoons – outrage which ended up costing lives. When asked if he would call for protests, the rabbi merely said: “You know, I’ve seen worse.”
