Very interesting speech here by the Danish prime minister, now also the European head, or secretary general of NATO. For those who do not know, the US and Germany where quite adamant on having this man as NATO head and Turkey had demanded anyone else. Rumors upon his appointment surfaced on his confirmation for the job that he would apologize for his support of Denmark on the publication of the now infamous Danish cartoons lampooning Mohamed etc.
He did indeed speak in Turkey on the matter. But he also spoke on Danish culture and freedom of the press. He was not adamant on either side, but one gets the sense that he was using some terms as Muslims may use them. That is to say, he knew they heard one thing while he may have meant another. All is not lost for Denmark. While I would have liked to have heard him say more clearly that rights are for individuals and not for groups and certainly not groups based on common beliefs, he did not exactly cave either. Here it is below. Judge for yourselves.
