Yeah - this story has been going on for a while now in Denmark (a few months, I believe).

The newspaper has received numerous death threats against their employees, lots of muslim countries have complained to the Danish government - and don't seem to comprehend the concept of "freedom of the press", despite repeated attempts by the Danish prime minister to explain it to them The whole concept of holding the Danish government accountable for the actions of a newspaper is completely retarded.

Generally, the Danes don't give a shit if someone is "offended" by something as trivial as cartoons in a privately owned newspaper - but there is concern on the side of the government that Saudi Arabia and other arab countries are starting to boycott Danish goods, which could really hurt the economy (thank god those idiots don't eat pork, because we export a lot of that ).

The story includes Norway and Sweden as well. The Norwegian christian weekly newspaper Magazinet published the images a while ago, and for some reason Sweden is also a part of the RoP hate list although the über-PC Swedes have done nothing to insult the RoPers.

The huge irony and hipocracy is that while the Danish newspaper perhaps exercised slightly poor judgment in publishing the pictures - the offense they caused was largely unintentional. It was an unintentional insult to SOME muslims (not all muslims are fanatical about the whole issue about depicticions of the prophet). Plus, the newspaper has apologized several times.

In contrast, muslims all over the world are burning Danish flags. Unlike many other flags, the danish flag is very simple - in design and in meaning (in addition to being the oldest national flag in the world). It is a CHRISTIAN CROSS on a plain red field. After all, Denmark is a christian country, with a state church, headed by the monarch.

So while the newspaper might accidentally have offended some muslims by violating a rule that many Christians are not even aware of, these muslims are defacing and burning the most obvious and explicit symbol of Christianity.

Nice going, idiots.



ETA: And the response of Christian Bishops in Denmark to muslims burning and defacing the most holy of all Christian images? Tolerance and acceptance - not death threats, violence, and demands for government action against individual freedom of expression.

Danish paper receives bomb threat
www.isn.ethz.ch/news/sw/details.cfm?id=14642
ISN SECURITY WATCH (Wednesday, 1 February: 20.40 CET) – Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten has received a bomb threat a day after issuing an apology for publishing a series of derogatory cartoons depicting the Muslim Prophet Muhammed that have led to protests and a boycott of Danish products in a dozen countries.

Danish police told reporters that no bomb was found at the newspaper’s offices in Copenhagen and Arhus, after both were evacuated for a search.

The Danish daily has faced harsh criticism over the September publication of a 12 satirical cartoons considered by Muslims as blasphemous. One of the cartoons portrayed the Prophet Muhammed wearing a turban in the shape of a bomb.

Several Arab countries either have recalled their ambassadors and closed down their Danish embassies or announced plans to do so. Saudi Arabia recalled its ambassador last week, while Libya closed down its embassy in Denmark earlier this week. Denmark has warned its citizens against traveling to Saudi Arabia under the circumstances.

The Danish government has repeatedly defended the right to free speech.

On Monday, the editors of the Danish daily issued a statement, also published in Arabic, saying the cartoons were “not intended to be offensive, nor were they at variance with Danish law, but they have indisputably offended many Muslims for which we apologize”.

Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh welcomed the apology, and news agencies reported that Muslim groups in Denmark said they were satisfied with the apology.

But outside of Denmark, the apology has not been accepted, with the Arab world continuing to boycott Danish goods, forcing Europe’s largest dairy company, Danish Arla Foods, to shut down its plant Saudi Arabia on Monday.

In the meantime, religious leaders are using the internet and other media outlets to continue to campaign for the boycott.

On Wednesday, France joined in the controversy when French newspaper France-Soir republished all 12 of the Danish cartoons, saying it had the “right to make fun of God”, United Press International reported.

The French newspaper denounced what it called “religious intolerance that refuses to support any mockery, any satire, any gibes”.

Jordanian tabloid invites fire-bombing or worse....

www.dw-world.de/dw/article/0,2144,1889584,00.html


Jordan makes the leap
 
Meanwhile,  a Jordanian gossip tabloid on defiantly published three of the cartoons that have triggered outrage in the Arab and Muslim world.
 
"Muslims of the world, be reasonable," said the editor-in-chief of the weekly independent newspaper Al-Shihan in an editorial alongside the cartoons, including the one showing the Muslim religion's founder wearing a bomb-shaped turban.
 


"What brings more prejudice against Islam, these caricatures or pictures of a hostage-taker slashing the throat of his victim in front of the cameras or a suicide bomber who blows himself up during a wedding ceremony in Amman?" wrote Jihad Momani.
 
He told the AFP news service he decided to publish the offending cartoons "so people know what they are protesting about... People are attacking drawings that they have not even seen."

Technically, the name of the country is DANMARK - but which for some reason has turned into Denmark in english.

"mark" means field in Danish, and old danish mythology (at least as explained by the historian Saxo Grammaticus in his 1186 book) holds that two brothers, Dan and Angel, were the original people there. Dan decided to stay, and his brother Angel travelled west, to settle in what is England today. Thus Danmark is "the field of Dan"

France Soir Fires Editor over Insulting Cartoons
By Cihan News Agency (aa), Paris
Published: Thursday, February 02, 2006

The French newspaper France Soir, which lent the front page of its Wednesday edition to insulting cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, has since fired its editor.

The owners of the paper removed Editor Jacques Lefranc from office less than 24 hours after the cartoons publication.

Besides the French daily, German Die Welt, Italian Della Serra and La Stampa, and Spanish Catalan El Periodico had published the same cartoons in support of the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten, from which the “cartoon crisis” emerged when they published 12 drawings featuring Prophet Mohammed in early January.

The owner of France Soir Raymond Lakah told AFP that firing the editor should be read as “a strong sign of our respect of beliefs”.


“Because of these publications, we apologize to Muslims and all who were hurt,” Lakas said.

Considering that France Soir is owned by EGYPTIANS, I don't think it is particularly surprising.
