Freedom of Speech issue

The fact that this guy got sent to jail for saying something still shocks me. The article zeroes in on something I hadn't thought of that merits attention:

Irving's trial came amid new — and fierce — debate over freedom of expression in Europe, where the printing and reprinting of unflattering caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad has triggered deadly protests worldwide.

Does anyone else see a problem with this inconsistency?
