… very sorry?
No, I don’t think it’s a good idea to print ugly pictures of Mohammed the prophet unless there’s an exceptionally good reason to do so.
No, I don’t think Europeans should but shrug their shoulders when their great ancestors’ religion is gratuitously insulted.
There’s no question the powers that be are going to use this pretext to further restrict freedom of speech in the EU (even more so in Russia).
So what? Nothing, really. It’s all tangential, at most, to the essence of the matter. People who tread the soil of Denmark only because the Danish people graciously (naively perhaps) let them or their parents take refuge in that orderly, if somewhat boring, country — these people are now brandishing slogans promising bloody vengeance. So much for gratitude. So much for imitating Romans when in Rome.
