Well believe it or not cartoons insulting the prophet offend regular Muslims as well as the extremists.

Extremists deserve no respect, but in the process of offending them, regular Muslims get caught in the cross fire and regular Muslims develop an animosity against people exercising their right to freedom of speech.
Regular muslims are also perfectly within their rights to voice their opinions on the people who offend their beloved, make-believe prophet, just as Christians are within their rights to voice their critical opinions on the people who offend their beloved, make-believe prophet.

People can and will take offence to anything they deem offensive, this can range from dietary choices, lifestyle choices, sexual preferences, the list goes on.

If regular muslims have a problem with people exercising their freedom of speech in a country they have decided to integrate themselves into, then that really is no problem but their own. They may not like it, but they have the right to voice it or demonstrate peacefully any time they please.
