Clerics demand cartoon apology

The Daily Telegraph Only an official apology by the Danish government to all Muslims for offence caused by the prophet Mohammad cartoons would prompt the lifting of the boycott of Danish goods, Muslim preachers said.
Why should the government apologize; they did not print the cartoons. And if they do apologize, are the clerics going to apologize for burning down embassies, and are they going to raise the funds to rebuild those embassies.
An official apology “is absolutely necessary ... because your government has not dealt with them (Muslims) respectfully,”
If you want respect, you need to show respect.
Islamic scholar Tareq al-Suweidan told a conference hosted by the Government in an attempt to ease tension over the drawings.
