Mohammed cartoon editor to receive award

Flemming Rose, the Jyllands-Posten editor who decided to proceed with publication of the Mohammed cartoons that triggered the Great Cartoon Jihad, is to be presented with a freedom of the press award.
Flemming Rose was named as the first winner of the annual Sappho Prize Monday for his 'uncompromising' attitude during the 2005-2006 Mohammed cartoon affair.

The award, according to the citation, goes to a 'journalist who combines excellence in his work with courage and a refusal to compromise'.
How appropriate.

But still taking care of the feeling of the others; I mean you should comment on the other bad practices in them like avoiding music & dress code, etc...rather than a holy guy who is already no more...at least you should respect him for what he is rather than what these people depicts them...
