I'm from Denmark and I find the whole thing rediculous.
The cartoonists should never have drawed that stuff, but the extremist muslims are making this a far bigger problem that it is.
The western world turned this into a fight for freedom of expression, but the extremists still believe that its an attack on their religion which it wasn't supposed to be in the first place. Religeous misunderstandings are always a great source for hate and many wars have started like that.
You can be pretty sure that the cartoonists would like to push the allmighty undo-button if it was possible. They didn't want this to happen at all.
