Danish imams fail again
Seven Danish Muslim groups have failed in their third attempt to take the Jyllands-Posten to the Supreme Court for publishing the Motoons.
The justice ministry rejected their application without giving reasons. Maybe Denmark’s judges have given up trying to educate these imams, having realised that no matter how clearly the basic principles of satire and free speech are explained to them, they will not learn. After all, the judge at the previous ruling expressed himself with admirable clarity:
[…]terrorist acts have been committed in the name of Islam, and it is not illegal for these acts to be made the object of satirical representation.
And yet it still hasn’t sunk in. The seven groups say they will continue their action at the European Court of Human Rights.
