Dutch are fed up with freedom of expression being thrown to the winds.
Therefore, the Danish paper that printed the cartoons of Muhmmad are reprinting. On with freedom of the press. Freedom of speech. Freedom period.
Per AP, the reprint is a "gesture of solidarity after police revealed a plot to kill the creator of the caricature that sparked deadly riots across the Muslim world in 2006."
In other words, don't forget. Remember. And keep the fight for right uppermost. Cheers for the ones at the front lines. What would the rest of us do with Islam World Rule threatening civility globally?
"The drawing, by newspaper cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, depicts Islam's prophet wearing a turban shaped like a bomb with a lit fuse.
"The papers said they wanted to show their firm commitment to freedom of speech after Tuesday's arrest in western Denmark of three people accused of plotting to kill Westergaard.
"Danish Muslims said they'll try to avoid a repeat of the violence two years ago.
"But with a rightwing Dutch lawmaker planning to air a movie that condemns Islam as fascist, Europe pondered the possibility of a new cycle of ethnic and religious turmoil."
It is imperative that free nations do not cower before the Muslim infiltration of our environs. Islamics must respect the host culture, not attempt to revamp it according to the Koran.
Enough is enough.
