July 4, 2006: The Muhammad Affair & the Denmark Pact

"While the Danish elites have almost forgotten the plight of the 12 cartoonists, extremist imams believe they have won a decisive victory that will lead to Denmark's incorporation into the Dar al-Islam and its subjugation to islamic law." by Helle Merete Brix and Lars Hedegaard and Lars Hedegaard and Helle Merete Brix, Benador Associates, July 3, 2006

[....] After eight months of inter-religious and inter-cultural "dialogue" pursued by an impressive number of both public and private organisations, including the Danish Foreign Ministry, it is eminently clear that there is no dialogue. What we have experienced is a great number of politicians, intellectuals, academics, industrialists, artists, writers, leaders of the Christian church etc. who have roundly condemned their fellow countrymen's behaviour towards the world's 1.3 billion muslims. But not a word of self-criticism has been heard from the Danish imams, from the vociferous spokesmen for the muslim organisations or from the 11 ambassadors from muslim countries who had done their best to inflame anti-Danish passions.

So the result after months of acrimonious national debate over the cartoon affair is that the local muslim strongmen and practically the entire intellectual, cultural and media elite are agreed that all the blame must be put on Jyllands-Posten and those Danes who have not distanced themselves from the newspaper's outrageous behaviour.

This is lengthy and worth reading.
