Not Again

So, is is time to stock up on Danish Flags again? Prophet cartoon sparks boycott call:
A Kuwaiti politician on Thursday called for a boycott of Denmark after 17 Danish newspapers ran an illustration of the prophet wearing a turban shaped like a bomb, with a lit fuse.

"We must impose a total political and economic boycott of Denmark," Waleed al-Tabtabai told the Kuwaiti parliament...

[Elsewhere, Hamas] called for those responsible to be put on trial.

Since no laws were broken by printing the cartoons, I'm not really sure what Hamas thinks that the charges would be.

Do you think that it is unreasonable to assume that every one of these people think that it is unfair for the Israelis to engage in collective punishment of the entire population of Gaza for some of them launching rockets at Israeli towns? It seems like a safe guess to me. So why exactly is it that it is proper to attempt to punish the entire country of Denmark in this way?
