Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
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.
