in response to reader comment: respect

How can you talk about respect, when you are representing a culture that doesnt respect the laws in Denmark.
The freedom to exercise any religion.... doing so witout forcing your beliefs or rules on anyone.

Hmmm, the rules in the Koran about drawing muhammad doesnt apply to any of those artists, because they are christians.
If you try to force the rules of the koran on to the artists, who are you then to invoke your rights regarding freedom of religion?
Respect? - look at your self!
