Denmark Holds Fast

Just as tiny Denmark held fast against Nazi oppression and helped block the tide of barbarism against Danish jews during the German occupation in World War II, the small but courageous nation is again refusing to bend to the insane demands of a totalitarian regime; this time the mad Mullahs in Iran:
On behalf of the committee in Iran who was supposed to host the Danes, the Iranian ambassador in Denmark writes in a letter Saturday that the case would risk overshadowing the visit. The Iranians therefore ask for the Danes to condemn the fact that a whole range of newspapers have republished one of the cartoons. [...]

Today the Danish Board of Foreign Policy Matters unanimously have canceled a planned trip to Iran after the Iranian ambassador demanded an apology for the reprinting of the Mohammed cartoons. That is, every single member from the far right to the far left has collectively made it crystal clear to the Iranians that under no conditions will they try to interfere with the press, or even worse, make an apology. And since this is an ultimatum from the Iranians, the trip is canceled!

And keep in mind, these are the Danish socialists talking! If only the rest of Europe (if only the rest of the Western world!) were like the Danes.
