More European papers reprinting “offensive” Islamic cartoons
Via the Financial Times:
Angry protestors besieged a building housing the Danish embassy in Indonesia on Friday as more European newspapers reprinted cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad that have caused outrage across the Islamic world.
The international dispute escalated into a consumer boycott and risked the gravest cultural clash with the Muslim world since the Salman Rushdie affair.
Publication of the cartoons in Spain, Italy, France, Germany and the Netherlands triggered condemnation in the Muslim and Arab world, where consumers turned their anger on Danish companies. Spain’s El Pais ran the cartoons on its front page on Friday.
Good. I hope more Euro papers reprint them in a show of solidarity against Islamic blackmail and terrorism.
