Picking a fight

Many people such as Hugh Hewitt are suggesting that the Danish paper, Jyllands-Posten, was looking for a fight by publishing the caricatures of Muhammad. This piece of information shows who the true instigators really were:

Keen to "globalize" the crisis to pressure the Danish government, Mr. Abu-Laban and his colleagues decided to send delegations to the Middle East. They prepared a dossier to distribute during the travels. The document, which exceeded 30 pages, featured copies of the published cartoons and Arabic media reports about the controversy. It also contained a group of highly offensive pictures that had never been published by the newspaper, including a photograph of a man dressed as a pig, with the caption: "this is the real picture of Muhammad."
