The Repentant Radical

2013-09-19 19:57:15.392362+00 by petronius 1 comments

An interesting piece from The Daily Beast: How the fire-breathing Islamic fundamentalist who led Denmark's opposition to the Prophet Mohammed cartoons has changed his mind and is asking forgiveness. What caused him to rethink his position? Reading the works of Soren Kierkegaard!

PS; Talk is that with Tina Brown abandoning ship, the Beast may not survive past Halloween. Better read the story now.

Fascinating. I tried to skim that article first and it doesn't work that way, but it's interesting given a deeper read. And there's way more to the story than Ahmed Akkari, the fact that Flemming Rose can't find an English publisher.
