NZ Politician Pleads For His Life

The Support Denmark website notes that:

The Danish prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen defended the freedom of the press and free speech and stated that any measures, if appropriate, could not be taken by the government but only by a court of law.
But in New Zealand:

"It is hard to see why the publication of cartoons known to be deeply offensive to Muslim communities is such an important point of principle to the New Zealand media who have published them," Ethnic Affairs Minister Chris Carter said yesterday.

"What good did it do publishing these cartoons and what damage could it do to communities in New Zealand and to New Zealand's international reputation?"
Carter has perhaps more reason than most to desperately kowtow to the Islamofascists. But he'd do better hiding behind the skirts of someone willing to fight.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Fehmi El-Imam, the general secretary of the Board of Imams of Victoria, has issued a veiling warning to the Australian media not to publish these cartoons.

(He) warned reprinting the cartoons here could "disturb people who can do things that we don't want them to do".
One is getting a little fed up with the disingenuous bullshit of the Muslim community's 'leaders'.
