Norwegians Fold While Danes Press On

The government of Norway apologized to Muslims for the publication of twelve Muhammad cartoons. Oslo sent out instructions to all the Norwegian embassies on how to respond to queries about the cartoons. Unlike the Danish government, the Norwegian government is ready to cave into Muslim pressure.

According to Islam it is blasphemy to depict Muhammad. OK, that's fine for them but the rest of us are not bound by their beliefs. The Danish government has, so far, refused to give in to demands from Muslims that it apologize for the publication of the cartoons.

Meanwhile, in that peace loving bastion of democracy and freedom, Palestine, the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade held an anti Dane demonstration in Nablus. Danes were advised to avoid the area lest they be attacked and Danish interests in the region were threatened.

Apparently, some Muslim nations (Saudi Arabia and Kuwait) are boycotting Danish products. We Americans need to pick up that slack. If you're interested in joining the cause, go here. Also, lgf has a post about this here.
