The Sydney Morning Herald—via AFP and Reuters—reports:

[Cartoon] protests have turned violent in several countries, including Libya, where 11 people died, and Nigeria, where 16 people were killed in rioting.

Those people weren’t “killed in rioting”, which suggests death through capricious mayhem; crowd tramplings and the like. They were killed by rioters.

UPDATE. Keep track of these illustration insurrections via an interactive Motoon map.

    1. Try this one:

      The American people have turned violent and retributive ever since September 11, 2001, when 3000 people were killed in the collapse of two skyscrapers.

      Thousands of semiliterate terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan have since been killed in explosions that seem to correspond with the appearance of mighty aircraft in the skies overhead.

    1. I notice from The Sydney Morning Herald report that the Indonesian protestors were pelting the US embassy with chicken ovulation products. Do you think they were being egged on??

      I should apologise to Muslims, I killed them with my Westerner’ness… (Tasmania is close enough to being Western, you biggots!)

      The Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, spiritual leader of the world‘s 77 million-member Anglican Communion, worried Muslims will increasingly “regard Christians as a threat.”

      Pffft. Yeah that Christ, with his ‘turn the other cheek’ philosophy is the threat, not Islam with its ‘Jihad is the second most important thing for a Muslim to do’ thing-o.

    1. I want an interactive map where clicking on a location causes images of Mohammed to be projected there by satellite-based lasers, thus starting a riot.

      Now that’s interactive!

    1. O/T but meeja related.

      This week’s latest breathless effort from that terror of the airwaves, ABC’s “media Watch” (horrors!)

      Story 1:
      Radio jocks from a small city radio station put a hoax call into the radio jocks of a smaller city radio station.  The hoax works.

      Good one Media Watch!  And the problem was…..?

      Story 2:
      Sports telecast (Packers) includes an interview with a representative of a betting organisation the Packers have an interest in.

      Fair enough.  Relationship should have been disclosed – but it was a sports show filler!  Trivial.

      Story 3:
      Broadcasting regulator does NOT uphold an old whinge by Media Watch against a TV station (Packers…) and in line with past policy doesn’t say why it found nothing wrong.

      Media Watch in hissy fit, bawling that they should be TOLD why there was nothing wrong.  End story by stamping feet & saying they were right, anyway.

      Stories 4 & 5
      Highlighting top rating radio presenter Alan Jones (who was a great friend of Kerry Packer & M/C at Packer’s Memorial Service a few days ago.  Anyone see a pattern developing here?) who had some provoative words (rather a lot, actually) to say against youths of a certain middle eastern appearance, and their social habits.

      Media Watch observes archly that they will be watching the broadcasting regulator VERY CLOSELY on this.

      Like the regulator will be crapping themselves over that!

      Well, at least there weren’t any more message-in-a-bottle stories.

      Still waiting for the hard-hitting, fearless media watchdog to address the elephant in the room – media self censorship any hypocrisy over the Danish cartoons & aftermath.

      Watchdog?  More like miniature poodle trying to hump my boot.

    1. So Media Watch managed to completely ignore the biggest media story of the past few years.

      Thanks for seeing it so I didn’t have to waste my time on that useless program.

      So all those warnings we’ve had over the years about violence in cartoons have come true. Handwringers of the world, rejoice!

    1. I remember someone commenting a while ago (MarkL?) that Osama bin Laden’s offer of a truce to America was the signal for an attack on “American” interests (by which he means the interests of everybody but himself and his gang).  Maybe the Cartoon War is the attack?  They seem to be doing a bang-up job at getting the entire Muslim world in an uproar.

      By the way, some pretty important Christian leaders are coming across as yellow-bellied cowards.

    1. Ah, more mystery mortality.

      Screw it. Let’s invade, steal their oil, and then NOT GIVE THEM ANY, all the while ruthlessly mocking their poor excuse for a religion.

      We can blame poor medical care when they start dropping from apoplexy.

    1. A gang, who called themselves The Barbarians tortured a Frenchman who was of the Jewish religion.

      The gang cited anti-Semitic slurs and recited Koranic verses in telephone calls and e-mails to Halimi’s family and to a local rabbi, in which they also demanded ransom.

    1. Zionism is a political movement among Jews, although supported by some non-Jews and not supported by some Jews, which maintains that the Jewish people constitute a nation and are entitled to a national homeland. Formally founded in 1897, Zionism embraced a variety of opinions in its early years on where that homeland might be established. From 1917 it focused on the establishment of a Jewish national homeland or state in Palestine, the location of the ancient Kingdom of Israel. …

      The Protocols of the (Learned) Elders of Zion is a fraudulent document purporting to describe a plan to achieve Jewish global domination. Written by Mathieu Golovinski, a Russian operative of Tsar Nicholas II based on an early work by Maurice Joly linking Napoleon III to Machiavelli.
      Czar Nicholas was fearful of modernization and protective of his monarchy, ordered the Imperial Russia secret police, the Okhranka to publish it in order to blame the Jews for Russia’s problems.

    1. This is what the Elders would like you to believe, 1.618, but then how do we explain the oil?
