PEOPLE OFTEN ASK where the moderate Muslims are, and why they don't stand up. Well, Tim Blair has noticed something:

The forbidden cartoons of Mohammadness have been published more widely in Muslim countries than in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada combined. In Malaysia alone, three newspapers ran images compared to just two newspapers in Australia.

Not a single major US daily went near them.

Though I'd call the Rocky Mountain News major.

UPDATE: And the Philadelphia Inquirer.
