Denmark stands up for freedom of expression...again

You've gotta love the Danes. First there was the Great Cartoon Jihad, in which the Danish government refused steadfastly to bow to Islamist pressure to take action against the Jyllands-Posten newspaper for publishing caricatures of Mohammed.

Today, the Danish government announced its willingness to provide protection to Somali-born activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali after the US government shamefully failed to act when the Dutch government withdrew their protection after Ms. Ali relocated to the US.
Brian Mikkelsen, the Danish culture minister, has indicated the government would be willing to allow outspoken Dutch-Somali author Ayaan Hirsi Ali to live in Denmark under its protection from fanatical Muslims seeking to kill her.
Good on ya.
