The penny drops

"Thousands of Muslims rampaged Sunday in Beirut, setting fire to the Danish Embassy, burning Danish flags and lobbing stones at a Maronite Catholic church as violent protests spread over caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

"The Danish foreign minister said: 'enough is enough.'

" 'Now it has become more than a case about the drawings: Now there are forces that wants a confrontation between our cultures,' [Per Stig] Moeller said. ' It is in no one's interest, neither them or us.' "

Bravo. But, regrettably, too little, too late.
