strength always commands respect

Yes, it does. And I think that's why the Muslim rage campaign sputtered out pretty quickly this time around. When it was just a handful of Danish cartoonists, the Muslim mob could tell immediately that Western governments might fuss and fluther about "freedom of speech", but were doing so from a position of abject cringe. The usual Muslim tactic is to test the opponent's strength, and if he shows weakness, swarm him. When they tested the strength of the little man in the Vatican, they could felt steel, and they slunk back down, to wait for a softer target to come around. So while the Danish cartoon imbroglio was a carnival of violence touring the world for months, this incident fizzled out with the usual loudmouthed threats and few chicken-hearted attacks on old ladies.
