Denmark denies apologizing for Mohammad cartoons

October 15, 2010

I can clearly deny that I have given an apology,” Espersen said. “But I can confirm that I have said that freedom of expression is not so extensive that it would not have any limits.

double talk. wow… she would really fit in with Hillary. The problem with these harpies is that society grooms their backbone through dating rituals. We give women the cultural right to lie to us and we condemn men when they do the same. I’m not saying that men don’t lie (of course they do)… but we encourage and laugh when women do it in the name of the great so called equalizer called feminism and then encourage them into positions of power.

October 15, 2010

Back in 2005, Danish prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen set the gold standard on defending free speech when, on being approached by perpetually aggrieved Islamic ambassadors hoping for official redress against Jyllands Posten (Cartoon Rage was just kicking in), he refused to hear their complaints, explaining to them and the world that it was not his place, as prime minister, to interfere with free speech in Denmark.

Danish FM meets top Muslim cleric to defuse cartoon tension

Danish Foreign Minister Lene Espersen

CAIRO — Denmark’s foreign minister said on Wednesday that the hurt caused to Muslims from cartoons lampooning the Prophet Mohammed was “very regrettable,” after she met Egypt’s top cleric to defuse tensions caused by the re-publication of the caricatures.

Lene Espersen said she and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed al-Tayeb, discussed “how to make sure that the great religions of the world can live peacefully side by side.”
The meeting followed the publication last last month of a book carrying the caricatures, entitled “The Tyranny of Silence.” (AFP)
