This, as Andrew Bostom noted, is a snapshot of a Thai organization called The Muslim Group of Peace. And, indeed, the group demonstrated "peacefully" outside the Danish embassy in Bangkok today, calling for a Thai boycott of Danish products over the Danish Mo-toons--and, according to the placard shown above, the beheading of Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard. Bostom writes:

And note this particularly peaceful, and ecumenical touch from the “Muslim Group of Peace” demonstrators : 

There appears to be a miniature dog species in the placard, balanced upon its forelegs, with a stream of urine being propelled from between its hind quarters,  which is directed at the bloody, decapitated head of the most prominent Danish cartoonist, Kurt Westergaard.

Westergaard, 73, and his wife now shuttle among safe houses in Denmark, where freedom of speech is no longer free. This is an outrage that doesn't seem to outrage anyone--which is the West's great tragedy.
