Principles of a Liberal Democracy. The pictures in Jyllands-Posten making fun of Mohammed have started a very interesting debate on principles. Some people in the Arab world now protest fiercely against this and terrorist threats have even been pronounced. Of course one should remember that this is not everyone and that major Islamic forces have defended the free press. But still this is enough. Jyllands-Posten should not excuse itslf in any way. It is their right to portray any king or prophet in any way they like. This is an extremely important point to make for us who like open borders and a society of many cultures. Tolerance doesn?t imply tolerance towards intolerance. In a liberal democracy there is free media and that?s it. People living in such countries simply have to accept it; it is a fundamental principle.
