If I called your sister a whore at a dinner party, it would not be a violation of my free speech for you to be upset and obejct. It would only be a violation of my free speech if the police came and told me not to say nasty things about your sister.

If Muslims are upset about people drawing the Prophet Muhammad, there is no threat to free speech because they are not in control of the machinery of the state.
