Danish newspapers reprint Mohammed cartoons

In a show of solidarity with Kurt Westergaard, the Danish cartoonist who was being stalked and targeted for death by a group of Islamist freakazoids, every major daily in Denmark reprinted the now-infamous dreaded cartoons of blasphemy.
The country's media has been quick to demonstrate solidarity with the cartoonist who was the target of an alleged assassination plot

Newspaper readers woke up on Wednesday to find a controversial image of the prophet Mohammed once again making headlines.

Even though the image of a lit bomb growing out of the prophet Mohammed's turban was first printed in Jyllands-Posten newspaper in September 2005, editors from all of the country's major dailies decided to re-print it on Wednesday after it was discovered that Muslim extremists had plotted to assassinate the man who drew it, Kurt Westergaard.
I doubt the reprint will generate the seething and teeth-gnashing it did the first time around.
