Nobody seems to have grasped the absurdity of an apology in Old Kampala for cartoons printed in a free and independent newspaper in Denmark — not by representatives of the paper, of course. From the Monitor Online, with thanks to Twostellas:
THE Danish Ambassador, Mr Stig Barlyng, yesterday met Muslim leaders and apologised for the publication of cartoons ridiculing Prophet Muhammad in a Danish newspaper.
The meeting took place at the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council headquarters in Old Kampala.
Barlyng’s visit to the council was in response to a threat by Ugandan Muslims to stop buying Danish products until Denmark apologises for the publication.
