The stature of the prophet of mercy and humanitarianism is greater and more noble than to be harmed by cartoons that have no respect for morals or civilised standards,” it said.”
There are apparently hundreds of thousands of devout Muslims who disagree. Their standards of civilized behavior not only demand murdering anyone who displays such cartoons, but also of hanging children by their wrists for daytime eating during Ramadan, stoning to death girls for running away from arranged marriages or for being raped, throwing acid on the face of girls for daring to go to school, slaughtering women and children and destroying ancient artifacts with equal fervor as they carry on with their insane rampage through the desert.
I guess this is still progress, though. Maybe in another 1000 years or so, Muslim organizations will be open to women driving cars and maybe even allowing them to expose their faces.
