This is my counter-protest against all those demonstrating against the republication, on Wednesday, of the Danish Motoons in Danish and Swedish papers. The decision to re-publish was made after a plot to murder 73-year-old Kurt Westergaard, the Danish cartoonist who created the above cartoon, was thwarted by Danish police. 2 Tunisians and a Danish citizen of Moroccan descent were arrested. Meanwhile, Westergaard and his wife have been in hiding, and under police protection for months.
An editorial in the Berlingske Tidende paper stated:
"Freedom of expression gives you the right to think, to speak and to draw what you like ... no matter how many terrorist plots there are."
