File them under "Profiles in Cowardice".

No cartoons of Muhammad in book about Muhammed cartoons?

[Mr. Donatich]...quoted one of the experts consulted by Yale — Ibrahim Gambari, special adviser to the secretary general of the United Nations and the former foreign minister of Nigeria — as concluding: “You can count on violence if any illustration of the prophet is published. It will cause riots, I predict, from Indonesia to Nigeria.”


As long as there's no riots in civilized countries, no problem.

Update 8/28: Roger Kimball provides a great account of the whole sordid story as it has unfolded.
