ASSociated Press: Protesters Rally in Pakistan, Iraq
About 2,000 people chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Denmark” as they rallied in a small town near the Afghan border to protest the Prophet Muhammad cartoons that have sparked violent demonstrations in Muslim countries.
The protesters in Barwand also burned flags of Denmark _ where the caricatures were first printed _ and torched effigies of the Danish prime minister and President Bush.

Just outside Pakistan’s capital in Rawalpindi, about five major markets were closed Tuesday as shopkeepers protested the cartoons.
Mushtaq Ali Shah, senior vice president of Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, which helped organize the strike, said a rally wasn’t being held because the businesses didn’t want the protest to turn into a riot that damages property.
Probably a smart move about the rally……but why destroy your own people’s property?
MORONIC……but DEADLY SERIOUS…….
