Now playing at Video of Associate Editor Michael Moynihan's interview with Flemming Rose, cultural editor at Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper that published those Mohammad cartoons a while back to such acclaim.

In September, I visited the offices of Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper responsible for publishing the now-notorious Mohammad cartoons, to speak with the man who commissioned the drawings, the paper's cultural editor Flemming Rose. Rose, who previously served as a correspondent in the Soviet Union and translated Boris Yeltsin's Against the Stream into Danish, discusses the fallout from the "cartoon crisis," similarities between the West's reaction to Soviet communism and Islamic extremism, and his Muslim supporters.
