Cartoons Causes Egypt-Denmark Crisis

Egypt is closing its dialogue with Denmark on Human Rights and discrimination because of a dispute over cartoons portraying the Prophet Mohamed that was published by a newspaper last month.

The diplomatic snub comes after the Danish prime minister refused to meet Egypt’s ambassador, along with ten other ambassadors from Muslim states. The PM said that if they thought he had any power to influence what a national newspaper did and printed, the essence of Danish democracy had been lost on them.

Egypt’s Embassy Councilor said that “the case no longer rests with the embassy. It is now being treated at an international level. As far as I have been informed by my government, the cartoon case has already been placed on the agenda for the Islamic Conference Organization’s extraordinary summit in the beginning of December.” h/t: Dhimmi Watch
