I Don't Think Hamas Liked Them Either


David Beito describes Iraq's reaction to the Jyllands-Posten cartoons:

The Shi'ite dominated central government, and its chief guru Ayatollah Sistani have consistently and sharply criticized the Danes for publishing the cartoons. The democratically elected provincial council of Basra has been particularly vigorous in opposing the Danes and shows no signs of letting up. It has now demanded "the withdrawal of all Danish forces from inside Basra until the Danish Government apologizes to all Muslims in the world."

If I were a Dane, I'd say withdraw, don't apologize, and call it a double win. Alas, the official reaction in Denmark went in a different direction.

Update: Afghanistan isn't bucking for the Nat Hentoff seal of approval either.
