Over and over, in the wake of 9/11, Muslims (and many non-Muslims) have proclaimed that all Muslims must not be judged on the basis of the few that are terrorists. Yes, it was Muslims that flew the airplanes into the World Trade towers, but most Muslims are not like that. That's very true. Each individual should be judged only on the basis of his or her own behaviour. So then why are all Danes being judged on the basis of one Danish cartoon? Why has an embassy been burned? Why have Danish products been taken off shelves?
