The Danes caved? After all of that for nothing? They groveled? They are licking Radical Islamic boot? There was a false report of a similar apology, but this looks credible from Mark F in Qatar. Meanwhile, the cartoonists and their children are hunted like animals. From Agora;
A group of Moslem males have tried to get at the daughter of one of the 12 cartoonists who drew the cartoons of Muhammed at her school. The political spokesman of the Liberals, Jens Rohde, revealed this during an interview with TV-Avisen while explaining his and the Prime Minister’s attack on the business community in Denmark, charging that they have put profits over Freedom of Speech
Not at school
Rohde says that the 12 cartoonists have had their lives overturned and are now living in hiding, after receiving several death threats.
"And a daugter of one of the cartoonists was sought out by 12 Moslem males - they were looking to get to her. Fortunately she wasn’t at school," Jens Rohde said.
DOHA: Denmark has officially apologised to Saudi Arabia on the issue of the 12 blasphemous cartoons of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) published by a Danish newspaper last September, according to Arabic web portal Ilaf based in London.
Danish ambassador to Saudi Arabia Hans Klingenberg tendered his government’s apology to Muslims over the publication of the blasphemous cartoons in the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten.
The 12 cartoons were later reprinted in over 100 European magazines and newspapers, inviting the wrath and anger of Muslims all over the world.
The cartoons led to a boycott of Danish products in Muslim countries, including Qatar, and agitations in many countries had turned violent.
Denmark’s apology came during a meeting with Saudi Consultative Council Chairman Salih bin Homaid who received the Danish ambassador in the Saudi capital in Riyadh, the Saudi Press Agency has reported.
The Danish ambassador said his country’s government and people denou-nced the insult to Prophet Mohammed (PBUH).
The latest move by the Danish government comes in the wake of Saudi Arabia’s request to the Danish government to give a satisfactory explanation about the delay in solving the cartoon crisis.
Huh? I will not rally for Denmark if they caved....uh uh, no way.
UPDATE: Agora says. NO WAY, the Danes did not cave, here, clearly developing story;
Ambassador denies apologising for Cartoons
The Danish Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Hans Klingenberg, denies having apologised for the Muhammed cartoons on behalf of the Danish government. The Saudi News Service, SPA, mistakenly reported this earlier today.
The article then goes into blah blag mode. I’ll translate it later when I have posted this. Here comes the interesting part:
He says that SPA’s report of the events does not match what he saw and that he would be a poor diplomat if he did not know of and report the Danish position on the cartoons.
"I deny having apologised on behalf of the Danish government, and I should know, shouldn’t I?" he says.
Yes, indeed, he ought to know. I got the story from an American soldier in Qatar so I assigned a level of validity to it I rarely would with the Islamic propaganda operations.
The apology story is false.
UPDATE: March 4th...........another retraction and correction from Agora here;
As the subject says. I am sorry to have misinformed you. I have updated the
Ok, this all turned out to be a hoax. Apparently, Jens Rohde misquoted the
information he got from the meeting he attended. Scroll down for the latest. I
will post an analysis of who I think have been incorrect later. So far, the
actual facts of the story are as follows:
Four weeks ago, 6-8 Moslem girls showed up at the school of the daughter of one
of the cartoonists, asking for "the daughter of the cartoonist who had insulted
their prophet". They were turned away at the door.
