Jyllands-Posten want justice

A Danish newspaper Jyllands- Posten said on Tuesday it had filed a defamation lawsuit against a lawyer representing a group of Muslim organisations that sued the daily for publishing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

The Jyllands-Posten sued Michael Christiani Havemann for saying its top editors ordered a cartoonists to deliberately make a “gross” drawing of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) because those solicited by freelance artists were not good enough. The 12 cartoons published by the daily in September prompted angry mobs to attack Western embassies in Muslim countries, including Lebanon, Iran and Indonesia. The cartoons later were reprinted in several countries worldwide.

The newspaper is seeking $16,800 in damages.

So a little payback for Denmark
