Dan Bilefsky has a story on Flemming Rose, the Jyllands-Posten editor whom I like more and more, while Olivier Truc has one on Kåre Bluitgen, the Muhammed children's book author (allegedly) at the root of the worldwide Muslim protests.

The Danes — all of us, in fact — are being pissed upon, says Per Nyholm (tak til Extreme Center), a cry taken up by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Muslim "dissident" who will not submit.

Shame upon the newspapers and the television networks who were not courageous enough to show their public what the "caricature affair" was about! … Shame upon the politicans who stated that publishing and republishing the drawings was "useless", that it was "bad", that it was a "lack of respect" or of "sensibility"! … Shame upon those European companies in the Middle East which put up signs saying "We aren't Danish", "Here no Danish products are sold"! It's cowardice.
