Danish book about the Muhammad cartoons controversy goes ahead despite the usual threats
A book about the publication of cartoons in Denmark that angered Muslims by showing images of the Prophet Muhammad will be released despite recent terror threats, the publisher said Wednesday. "The book will come out as planned," said Karsten Blauert, of Jyllands-Posten Editions. The book, titled "The Tyranny of Silence," is due out Thursday, five years to the day after the cartoons first appeared in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. Our take: Good for them! People in the civilized world can not allow a bunch of barbarians, who claims to act in the name of their religion, to violate their freedom with threats of violence and other acts of terrorism.
