Could anyone anticipate the consequences of cartoons as well, some of which the Imams also composed?
I doubt this was any spontaneous uprising over some nobody preacher in Florida, any more than the riots and killings about the cartoons were spontaneous. They were designed to silence critics and spread terror.

.Someone committing a crime passionel in the heat of the moment is still guilty of the crime, but it is explained somewhat by the state of mind of the person at the moment of committing that crime
But this was not "in the heat of the moment". This was months after the Florida incident took place.
Perhaps the riots and murders will be somewhere else next time, just as previous riots were. Riots and murders within the Muslim community are not uncommon. We can see them regularly on TV. But this time their victims were more consequential to the world than their previous victims..Isn't it telling that the murders took place in Afghanistan? Why there and not other fiercely faithful Islamic countries like Indonesia, Morocco, Oman or Iran? Why Afghanistan? Because people there are currently not behaving as they normally would.
My sincere apologies for claiming you used the term "bigot", by the way. It was another poster and I regret making that statement..
