Politiken ‘all alone’ after apology for Prophet Muhammad cartoon - journalist

A Danish newspaper, The Politiken, has apologized for offending Muslims over its printing of a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad five years ago.

The incident sparked fierce protests throughout the Muslim world and intense debate about freedom of speech.

The Politiken newspaper says its apology was part of a settlement with a Saudi lawyer representing eight Muslim groups in the Middle East and Australia.

Flemming Rose, culture editor of the Jyllands-Posten newspaper’s sister company, told RT that his colleagues have caved in: “The general feeling is that Politiken is, in fact, all alone. There are just a very few voices speaking out in their defense today.”
