Nobody's Business poses a pop quiz. Come on it's multiple choice.
What did the BBC do to commemorate the occasion where almost 150 people died in Muslim violence?
a) Donating £10,000 to the anti-censorship organization Article 19.
b) Broadcasting a three-part series on religious fundamentalism and free speech.
c) Profiling the 12 Danish cartoonists who live under death threats, 10 of whom still dare not appear in public.
d) Publishing a web article that pedantically asks if the Danes have finally learned their lesson.
You guessed it: the only correct answer is D.
The diplomatic crisis seems to have passed. Last week, the Saudi Arabian ambassador returned to the Danish capital and all Danish embassies have re-opened. The question everyone is asking is has Denmark learned its lesson?
Ah: "The question everyone is asking." Nice phrase, signifying that you're a bit of a weirdo if you do not happen to wonder whether the Danes have been properly chastised by Islamic thugs.
