Danish book republishes Prophet Muhammad cartoons

(Reuters) - The Danish editor whose 2005 publication of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad sparked violent protests around the globe released a book on Wednesday that reprints the pictures and warns of a "tyranny of silence."

Thursday marks the fifth anniversary of the publication of the 12 drawings in Jyllands-Posten which blew up the following year into a global "cartoon crisis." Dozens of people were killed in clashes, mainly in the Middle East.

Flemming Rose's book "The Tyranny of Silence" has fed worries of renewed unrest, as after the 2008 reprinting of the cartoons by many papers after a death threat to cartoonist Kurt Westergaard.

Danish Foreign Minister Lene Espersen met 17 ambassadors from Muslim countries on Wednesday as part of efforts to prevent any new cartoon crisis and foster understanding.

"The violence was committed by people who made a decision to react to these cartoons in a specific way," saidRose, who has lived for years under police protection because of threats against him and his paper Jyllands-Posten.

"To publish cartoons, religious satire, in a Danish newspaper is not incitation to violence," he said.

This is an important anniversary in the battle to retain free speech.

Good for the publishers. I hope they produce a set of signed and numbered limited-edition prints and place them for sale on the open market. If they do, kindly form an orderly queue behind me to purchase them, as obviously I will want a low number on mine.

I'll wait till they're available on Amazon. Or maybe Kindle will have a down-load.
