Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
The imposition of religious taboos on the rest of society is barbarism. Some forbearance is merited when the religion in question is a disenfranchised minority religion. But such forbearance is a privilege, not a right, and it should not be unlimited.

When they don't react and consequently the sales of that rubbish magazine don't rise,

I guess arson does not count as a reaction. Oh, well.

Is there anything Muslims can do that would find your approval, apart from giving up their religion?

The same thing all religious people can do: Keep it to themselves. I'm not obligated to respect your religion. I might respect it on my own initiative if I happen to find it respectable, but the odds of that diminish sharply every time one of its adherents throws an infantile temper tantrum.
