Update from Jyllands-Posten — “Danish PM Backs Villy Søvndahl”, translation by TB:
“Villy has taken a long journey, but now he is where he should be. Let me put it this way: Had I not myself been the Prime Minister, I would have expressed myself in the exact same way,” [Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen] says.
Even Politiken is praised for reprinting the drawing of Mohammed with a bomb in his turban:
“Without interfering in Politiken’s editorial priorities, I think that it would have been beneath contempt if they had chosen not to reprint the drawing as documentation,” he says.
Henrik of Europe News left this report in our comments early this morning. Since I don’t know when I’ll get to any real blogging today (work pressures), I’ll let Henrik bring us up to date on the situation in Denmark:
This is big in the newspapers today. Jyllands-Posten puts it this way, in large type on the front page:
Go to Hell
That’s quite clear. “Hell” in this context would be countries where Islam rules. Bad places indeed.
Villy now has 500+ comments on his blog, most of them ecstatic, and he has a new post on about Hizb ut-Tahrir up today. This is a watershed event.
For those whining about your own politicians still not getting it, please grab the opportunity and tell them that even the left wing in Denmark has had enough and wants the Islamists to leave our nice countries, and that it is time for other democracies to follow the example.

Writing letters and blogging is recommended. And it takes time. One doesn’t get a victory like this in one shot, it takes a bit of groundwork to get there. Since we’re the best educated about it, it’s our task.
For the Intifada in Denmark, it’s pretty much over. Apart from bombing a solarium 500 meters from my office, nothing of note happened today or yesterday.
And Kurt Westergaard, the artist behind the bomb-in-turban Motoon, said Monday that he had no place to stay. I offered to Flemming Rose that he could use my summer house, and lots of others came up with similar offers. He’s now safely housed again, and I got a warm “thank you” from Flemming Rose.
Islam sure makes life more challenging…
