The Danish government stepped up efforts Tuesday to curb the damage caused by the publication of cartoons in a Danish newspaper linking the Prophet Muhammad to terrorism.
But the moves failed to allay Muslim anger as retailers boycotted Danish goods in the Middle East and protesters in Gaza set fire to photos of Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. The economic fallout continued, with the French supermarket chain Carrefour announcing it was pulling Danish goods from its shelves in Arab countries.
A day after the Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, apologized for offending Muslims, the Danish foreign minister, Per Stig Moller, handed out a contrite statement about the cartoons on the sidelines of an Afghanistan fund-raising conference in London.
The statement, in the name of the Danish prime minister, said that he personally would not have depicted "religious symbols in this way." His remarks were also sent to Muslim embassies across the Arab world.

Can the Danish President tell the tide to stop?
How many Danish hams do they import into the Middle East anyway?

Why don't the Danes invite them over for a pig roast and a few beers? That should settle their feathers.
I will buy a tin of Danish cookies next time I'm at the supermarket...if they have any.
stupid, stupid Danes.
You're welcome to, but isn't that phrase redundant?
Personally I'd rather see Mohammed with a sow's snout and a curly tail.
He's a terrorist as are his followers.
Looks like a pig, smells like a pig, oinks like a pig.

It is as redunant as "TROP" is nonsensical.
Wow, good think they didn't show him diddling little girls.
"Danes try to calm Muslim rage"
Yeah. Good luck with that.
i thought he preferred little boys?
When I was at Vanderbilt we fed Osman from Turkey BBQ pork on his birthday. Half way through the meal, someone said "Pass the pork" and Osman looked down at his half eaten BBQ sandwich and said "This is pork?!?"
It was the Graduate Christian Fellowship. So I assume Osman was a Christian, but still he didn't eat pork.
We felt terrible about it. But after his initial shock, he seemed ok.
In the appeasement game, the only way to win, is not to play
