I think we should give them just that: a cartoon apology. Send Bugs Bunny to munch his carrot and say, “Ehhhh…sorry about that, doc.”
Seriously, the entire free world, and everyone who values freedom of speech, should be standing with Denmark now.
GAZA (Reuters) – Thousands of Palestinians protested for a second day on Tuesday against Denmark for allowing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad to be published, saying an apology by the newspaper involved was not enough.
Demonstrators burned Danish flags, chanted “War on Denmark, Death to Denmark” and called for an Arab boycott of products from the small north European country until it showed contrition for the satirical caricatures deemed blasphemous by Islam.
Anger has spread across much of the Muslim world.
The offices of the Danish newspaper were evacuated on Tuesday after a bomb threat. “I can confirm we evacuated Jyllands-Posten. There has been a bomb threat and we have evacuated the building,” a police spokesman said.
The offices of Jyllands-Posten in its headquarters in Denmark’s second city Arhus and in the capital Copenhagen were evacuated and police and sniffer dogs searched the buildings.
The newspaper apologized on Monday, but that was not enough for the Gaza protestors.
