Protests took place around the world last month over cartoons depicting Prophet Mohammed.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) – A group of 27 Danish Muslim organizations have filed a defamation lawsuit against the newspaper that first published the contentious Prophet Muhammed cartoons, their lawyer said Thursday.

i find this interesting - is their any basis for a suit at all? what kind of can of worms does this open if it succeeds? no more commentary/pictures of any and all religious symbols, at the very least. personally, i think it gets tossed …

(mods- i believe the last one got locked at some 20 pages … if this fits somewhere, please add it.)
