Sweden caves following Motoon publication:

In an official statement, Minister Freivalds said that she “strongly condemns the provocation by [the extreme right wing paper] SD-Kuriren.
“It is deplorable that a small group of extremists expose Swedish citizens and Swedish interests to clear danger.”

It is deplorable that extremists threaten Sweden; equally so that Minister Freivalds doesn’t recognise and condemn the actual extremists, whom Freivalds seems to think are insensible entities driven entirely by “provocation”.

UPDATE. Hitoshi Igarashi, Japanese translator of Salman Rushdie’s The Satanic Verses, was stabbed to death in 1991. His killer will soon be immune from prosecution:

To the indignation of the Japanese public, some Muslims in Japan applauded the murder and declared that even if the murder was not committed by a Muslim, God made sure that Igarashi “got what he deserved” …

Coincidentally, in July this year, the statute of limitations on the case will expire. The victim’s wife, Masako, is still calling for Japanese people to remember the case to put pressure on the police. She says she hopes that the case will not fade away.
