Denmark: Jyllands-Posten acquitted, Muslims considering next step

The High Court of Western Denmark concluded that Jyllands-Posten did not defame Muslimsby printing the Muhammed cartoons in 2005.

The Islamic Faith Society, who had wanted chief editor Carsten Juste and culture editor Flemming Rose charged for defamation, were disappointed by the judgment.

"It is very sad that the high court think that it's ok to defame others and to put down minorities. We are very disappointed," said IFS's spokesperson Muhammed Nehme to

Over the next few days the IFS will consider how they will continue, since it's not stopping here, says Muhammed Nehme.

He says that they will not stop to think and discuss the sentence again, and in a few days they will announce their next step.

Oh boo hoo!

Who do WE sue for all the non-Muslims murdered by Muslim crazies?

Lessee, cartoons or violence, which is worse?

Well, when you can call something so violent the "religion of peace," you apparently have completely lost your common sense anyway.

Muddle-headed thinking. An attack on the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is not defamation of Muslims. No wonder they lost the case. Abdassamad Clarke

Finally a sensible decision by a European court. The Danish judges refused to be intimidated by muslim fanatics unlike their British counterparts who cower whenever they have a case involving muslim fundamentalists. Freedoms like free speech should not be stifled by outsiders who would like us be living under sharia law.

The whole noise about freedom of speech is only so much hypocrisy. Most of the serious issues of the day simply cannot be discussed in the public arena of the media because of a censorship so pervasive that it is appalling. Is it the state that censors? No, it is a global miasma that has settled over every issue, and which simply does not allow anything outside very narrow parameters to be said.
