Norwegian Mag Republishes Mohammed Cartoons

"Just like Jyllands-Posten, I have become sick of the ongoing hidden erosion of the freedom of expression," Magazinet editor Vebjoern Selbekk wrote....

The editor said he was not afraid of the prospect of facing the same indignation and even death threats that faced the Danish paper after it published the cartoons.

Meanwhile, Denmark's prime minister on Tuesday accused a group of local Muslims of smearing the country's reputation in the Middle East as they sought support against a newspaper that published caricatures of Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

UPDATE: "What on earth does freedom of expression mean?" a furious Hamadan wondered. "What is the real motive behind this act? Is it out of free speech or to insult Muslims who make up the largest minority in Norway?"
