Today, major Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende prints Kurt Westergaard’s notorious Mohammed-cartoon for the very first time, alongside an editorial entitled: “No Discussion Should End in a Funeral“. Since the Cartoon Crisis began in September 2005, Berlingske Tidende has played its part in a very careful manner, similar to that of most American papers. But the murder plot against Kurt Westergaard has obviously challenged editorial positions, and accordingly, almost all major Danish papers today reprint the cartoon in an act of solidarity with Westergaard and Jyllands-Posten.
