A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Them Feisty Danes

Posted by Godefroi on December 16, 2008

Is it just me, or does there seem to be a preponderance of Danes with cajones? Amid the Muslim riots in Copenhagen, another Danish publisher has released something that offends Muslims (recall the Jyllands-Posten cartoon fiasco of a couple of years ago).

Over at the Jawa Report one can read about the latest furor.

It is an equation becoming all too familiar. A new book released in Europe contains essays critical of Islam and illustrations of the Prophet Mohammed. In response, some are calling for blood. Danish journalist Lars Hedegaard’s book Groft Sagt (Rough Talk), was released in Denmark earlier this month. It is a collection of about 100 of his favorite newspaper columns from a Copenhagen daily.

Many of the columns are critical of Islam. In addition, the book features 26 new illustrations from Kurt Westergaard, whose drawings of the Prophet Mohammed in the newspaper Jyllands Posten in 2005 sparked a wave of violent protests.

Holger Danske would be proud.

Of course, there’s more here.

Sure, he's sleeping NOW...
