Lyver Lene Espersen?

Gulf News skriver i dag:

Cairo: Five years after angry Muslim protests, Denmark Wednesday apologised for the printing of cartoons lampooning the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).

“Denmark is against any repeat of such bids that cause rifts among people of the world,” Danish Foreign MinisterLene Espersen told a joint press with Egypt’s top Muslim cleric after one-hour talks.

“Denmark is keen to maintain good ties with all Muslim countries,” she added as she sat next to Ahmad Al Tayeb, the Grand Shaikh of Al Azhar, which is the Sunni world’s prestigious seat of learning.

The printing of drawings mocking the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in late 2005 triggered fury across the Muslim world, where some countries boycotted Danish goods in protest.

During her press conference Wednesday, Espersen denied that her visit to Al Azhar and talks with its sheikh were meant to allay Muslim fears after threats to the much maligned Danish cartoonist.

“My country believes in freedom of expression, but also respects all religions,” she said.

Meanwhile, Shaikh Al Tayeb, who was appointed in the post last March, said that the Danish official was keen to make the apology in public.

“She also cited her country’s efforts to enact a law criminalising contempt of religions,” he added.

The top cleric declined to apologise for the angry — sometimes violent- reactions of the Muslims to the cartoons.

“I sensed that the minister feels ashamed of these drawings. She asserted to me they were an individual act, which did not express the Danish people’s and government’s beliefs.”

Jyllands-Posten skriver ligeledes i dag: Den danske udenrigsminister understreger dog, at hun ikke har sagt undskyld.

Feministisk eller evidensbaseret udenrigspolitik?

Lene Espersen melder ud, at der skal åbnes for nødhjælp til Gaza, hvilket er en ny udenrigspolitisk linje i forhold til sin forgænger Per Stig Møller, der støttede den israelske blokade af Gaza.

Dhimmi-Lene

Helt tilbage i december blev Justitsministeriet gjort opmærksom på, at Domstolsstyrelsen havde besluttet at tillade dommere med tørklæder i de danske retssale.

Og siden da har styrelsen hele tre gange omtalt beslutningen og ikke mindst begrundelsen for den til ministeriet.

De sædvanlige mistænkte melder sig

Lene Espersen vil udvise terrormistænkte.

DDR (den uudholdelige Mette Walsted Vestergaard) anvender selvfølgelig straks overskriften “Justitsministeren vil udvise til torturstater” og kalder Amnesty i studiet i TV-Avisen kl. 21 iaften, Amnesty-repræsentanten ævler selvfølgelig løs på vanlig vis

Som eksempel anvender DDR den burkabefængte konvertit-kone til en af tuneserne, der ville myrde Kurt Westergaard.

Lad os lige rekapitulere: I et tidligere interview har konerne til de potentielle mordere fortalt, at familierne havde skaffet sig PAS med henblik på ferieophold i Tunesien!
