Wednesday February 8, 2006
The Danish paper responsible for the original caricatures of the prophet Muhammad is set to stoke the row further by running cartoons satirising the Holocaust.
Flemming Rose, the culture editor of Danish daily Jyllands-Posten, said today he was trying to get in touch with the Iranian paper, Hamshari, which plans to run an international competition seeking cartoons about the Holocaust.
'My newspaper is trying to establish a contact with the Iranian newspaper, and we would run the cartoons the same day as they publish them,' Mr Rose told CNN.
The Danish editor was also defiantly unapologetic about the original publication of 12 cartoons - one of which featured the prophet wearing a turban shaped as a bomb - in his paper five months ago."
Flem is an old cold warrior like Rummy and Cheney.
