Muslim Anger about "Those Cartoons"

One thing that crosses my mind is the Hadith often quoted in Desi Muslim circles, that goes "Ghussa himakath say shoroo ho kay paagalpan/nadaamath pay khatham hoe tha hai," or "Anger starts at silliness and ends at madness." Instructive since most of the reaction you see in Muslim circles--especially in the streets, and very commonly in South Asia--on the issue is anger; very little wisdom there.
