Danes Leading the way again

According to Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende, the poster in question featured the Kaaba shrine with the text "Stupid stone". A poster with a Jewish man wearing a typical Jewish head covering had the inscription "Stupid skullcap".

BT quotes the Tiergarten press release as saying: Muslims in Europe must accept that they can't censure an exhibition in a gallery.

A Berlin gallery has temporarily closed an exhibition of satirical works by a group of Danish artists after six Muslim youths threatened violence unless one of the posters depicting the Kaaba shrine in Mecca was removed, it said on Thursday.

The Navy will christen the newest San Antonio class amphibious
transport dock ship New York (LPD 21) at 10 a.m. CST on Saturday, March
1, 2008, during a ceremony at Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding facilities
in New Orleans, La.

The ship is named New York in honor of the state, the city and the
victims of Sept. 11, 2001.
A unique characteristic of the ship is the
use of 7.5 tons of steel salvaged from the World Trade Center wreckage
that was incorporated into the construction process.
The steel was
melted and formed to make the bow stem of the ship. Use of this steel
symbolizes the spirit and resiliency of the people of New York. The
official motto of New York is: "Never Forget."
