Denmark: Danish PM condemns views of Dutch film-maker

Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen distanced himself from remarks made by Geert Wilders, who praised Rasmussen in a television interview for backing the freedom of speech concerning the reprinting of cartoons of the prophet Muhammad. Rasmussen said he does not condone attempts to demonize religious or ethnic groups, saying I strongly condemn Geert Wilders’ condescending statements about Muslims… I find these expressions extremely offensive. Wilders film criticizing the Quran is due for release by the end of the month.
