Where Were You The Night The Mosque Exploded?

This is why I was not particularly convinced by the arguments that the publication of the cartoons, although certainly within the western concept of free speech rights, was an unnecessary provocation. My position was that it doesn't matter what we do, we will be tarred with Islam's broad and fanatical brush. That is evident by the morphing of the "protests" over the cartoons to anti-American and anti-Israeli affairs. Now, the president of Iran has blamed us (and Israel) for the bombing of the mosque. Since it is inevitable that these complete fabrications will be pronounced, and believed, throughout most of the Arab world, what's the point of bending over backwards (and jettisoning our principles) in order to appease these people?
