News from Norway, drawing on a VG Nett article (in Norse), reports that Norwegian TV2 will mark the anniversary of the publication of the Mohammed Cartoons tomorrow. As part of the documentary “Threatened Into Silence”, TV2 will show the cartoons on television for the first time in Norway.
As most of our readers know, the Motoons were first published this time last year in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. The world’s Muslim communities eventually erupted in a carefully organized and predictably violent response. To their credit, neither the newspaper nor the Danish government ever backed down or apologized, although some Danish coporations, such as Arla, went into full dhimmi mode in order to retain their business in Arab countries.

Up until now Norway, a champion of multiculturalism and host to the noxious Mullah Krekar, has been in the forefront of the International Muslim Appeasement Movement (IMAM), ready to turn belly up at the slightest sign of Islamic displeasure.
Are things starting to change in Norway?
Presumably imams across the world are even now ready to rouse the faithful to their usual violent response, and large quantities of highly flammable Norwegian flags have no doubt been stockpiled in convenient warehouses. I hope the fire brigades in Oslo are on the alert.
This time on Tuesday, Norwegian embassies in certain selected Middle Eastern capitals may well be smoking ruins. Stay tuned.
