You are aware that at the very latest since 1938 appeasement has been a dirty word?

By your reckoning, the UK and Switzerland with about 5 % Muslim population, don’t have much longer to go before “freedom of expression” has to be similarly curtailed. Unofficially, it already is.

One point I do agree with: things are going to get worse.
I'm not sure I fully understand your post, but yes I believe that the more established a predominantly theistic culture gets, especially one as sensitive to criticism of its tenets and figures as Islam, the more you will have to take that into account when expressing yourself in the media. It just seems like common sense and the rise of terrorist activity and willingness to commit public atrocities over the last decade makes it even more so.
