You're right, but I think it is something more than that. I think a good bit of it is based on fear. The fear is so internalized and accepted that it can be called something else, like open-mindedness, or sensitivity to another culture. But it is really fear. You can see it in the way the Danish cartoons are called just that, Danish, and no one points out that the imams themselves drew the most insulting ones. Or the way YUP published a book on them, but never reprinted them.

After the recent California murder spree, reporters are looking all over to find someone who insulted the murderers. When they find it? Well, that's it, no need for a motive.

Yes, I'm sure fear is there in the mix somewhere.
