The great blog The Brussel Journal just put in a new great article, Appeasing Oslo Strikes at Press, Al-Guardian Strikes at Danes. A must read on the appeasing left wing grovelling at the feet of the Muslims. An exerpt:
Norway has a far-left government. Since it came to power last October it has grovelled at the feet of extremist Muslims, even considering a consumer boycott of Israel in order to please the islamofascists. The Norwegian government apologized immediately when some of its newspapers reprinted the Danish Muhammad cartoons. This did not prompt the Muslim extremists to treat Oslo any differently than Copenhagen, however. Last week both the Danish and Norwegian embassies in Damascus were torched and ransacked.
Instead of pondering the fact that the islamofascists despise their appeasers at least as much (and perhaps even more) than those who bravely resist them, the Norwegian government is taking it out on the Norwegian media. While the Danish government blamed the Syrian authorities Norway’s Socialist Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg yesterday blamed the Christian newspaper Magazinet for the destruction of the embassy.
The answer of the Danish newspaper editor from Jyllandsposten is excellent:
Last week the BBC asked Flemming Rose, the culture editor of Jyllands-Posten, the paper which first published the cartoons last September, whether he would still publish the cartoons today considering the consequences. Mr Rose replied: “I think asking me that question is like asking a rape victim if she regrets wearing a short skirt on Friday night at the discotheque.” Even if the skirt was provocative, the question one should ask is whether the rapist can validly claim that he is not to blame because the woman provoked him.At the moment no comments are possible at the Brussel Journal either because of hacking or just too much ordinary traffic. Too bad as the discussion is usually good.
