Regarding the non-re-publishing of the cartoon in question, I think it would be acceptable if a newspaper editor would just come clean about their fear, by saying something like 'We are not publishing the picture not because we believe it is offensive, not out of respect, but simply because we fear the possibility that dangerous fanatics might murder our staff'.

There was a shocking case a year or so back when a muslim in, I think, the audience of Question Time wore a 'Jesus 'n Mo' T-shirt - totally gentle in content, J and M were just depicted saying 'Hi' to each other - and made a strong declaration that he was NOT offended by it.  And the beeb refused to show it.  Now that was effectively the beeb lining up with the fanatics rather than validating the moderate view-point.  I hope they have moved on now.
