Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Its not just about blasphemy against Islam, its blasphemy by itself that is going to become something that will eventually not just have to be tolerated but to be treated as an antiquated concept.

SJS's sentiments are admirable but whilst the powers that be on any side can frame it as an ideological battle, the violence will continue. For all of his many idiocies, there was one thing GWB did get right and that was to reiterate the military actions were designed to be against Al Qaida, not Islam. This (correctly) means they were targeting them for what they are; an organised criminal group, not ideological warriors, and once those at the pointy end got that message, Al Qaida's influence waned fairly dramatically.
A big problem right now is that Obama's hawks have taken that success as a license to target not only those left from the old guard but to pre-emptively target those who are looking likely to be a problem ( e.g. the Awlakis) and in places which are looking likely to cause them future woes (e.g. Yemen). One of the mechanisms are so-called 'signature strikes'. Stuff like this makes it really easy for the extremists on the ground to hype the religious war angle and recruit more blokes to the 'cause'.
EDIT: I don't mean to infer that this practice began under Obama. Nowhere near. But, under his watch, the practice has increased exponentially.
