When I visited Seattle, Washington, USA, last week, I saw an IMAX movie :"The Vikings: Journey to New Worlds". It is a documentary on Viking Explorations and settlements and the influence the Vikings have had on western culture. The Bayeux Tapestry was shown. Heres's a link to a description of the documentary.

I read in todays newspaper (a dutch one) that arabic protesters are now even demanding the Queen of Denmark to apologise for the cartoons about Mohammed, published in a danish newspaper. Is this true? Of course she never will (quite rightly so), but it is disturbing to see her dragged into this discussion (though the protests against Denmark were already quite upsetting). Anyway, good luck to her and to Denmark!

Yes it is tru that they are demanting to get an apologise from Queen Margrethe. I am not going to write what i feel about this problem for my country becaus then i know i am going to be banned from this forum.
I will only say this: The must be very ignorant when they demand that they want an apologise from the king of Denmark....We don´t have a king but a queen and we like her very much.Queen Margrethe has been queen of Denmark since 1972.

The Danish queen is a highly intelligent person. I am sure she will find a solution which is tactful but shows her commitment to stand by the Danish people and their rights, especially the right to free speech. Good luck to her, though!

Queen Margrethe has no position in the fight with the Muslim protestors. The newspaper that published the offensive materials has the freedom of the press, and therefore the government is not responsible for anything they do.

It's difficult for many in the Muslim world to understand that separation of state and press that is relatively common in the western world. That is not a criticism, but an observation made by many of my Muslim friends who have lived in Persia(Iran) and other typically Muslim nations who have learned about this latest issue.

So, while protestors might want an apology from the Danish government, they have no right to ask it of the Queen and she has no right to give such an apology. To give such an apology might save some trade, but I believe it would be detrimental to the Danish way of government. The newspaper is able to give an apology, but I would think any government involvement should be considered offensive to the Danish people and their idea of freedom of the press from governmental intrusion/regulation.

It almost makes me cry when we see ignorant, unemployed arabs in the Palestinian areas burning up Dannebrog and others using it as a doormat.

I wanna see some action from Queen Margrethe.

I wanna see her explain what freedom of speech and respect of your fellow human being means.

Since the prime minister sits in the pocket of George W. Bush it's only contra-productive that he speaks to the muslims.

To me it seems many Danes have lost the essense of freedom of speech. It wasn't invented so you could offend and slander other people, it was invented to ensure that people weren't oppressed by dictators.

I hope QMII kind of disappears from sight for a while. I've been reading reports of radical Muslims demanding the death of anyone involved (and as the primary figure in Denmark, she'd be an obvious target). I doubt anyone would go that far, but it's best to be safe. Tensions are so high right now that it might be a good idea just to stay in Amalianborg for a while.

The Queen seems to be a strong lady and i hope she doesnt confine herself at Amalianborg for her safety. That would show fright on her part, i think she should just go about her normal duties and going out and meeting and greeting like she has been, to show she wont be intimidated.

like it or not, but the essence is that you can say and print whatever you like, which is a good thing. I do not think we should turn the situation around now. The cartoons were bad taste indeed, but the reaction of a part of the muslim world is so shocking that we should defend our right to publish whatever we want. Of course, as the father of the murdered filmmaker Theo van Gogh said: You are allowed to say it, but that doesn't mean you HAVE to!

It amazes me why 100.000's of muslims are protesting now, while on a daily basis muslims murder each other in Iraq, and you don't hear a word about that from them. That a future EU-member, Turkey, is saying that the freedom of the press should be contained worries me as well.

I don't think the Queen can do anything right now :(

It upsets and worries me as well, to see how much some islamic people hate us, the western world, especially as many of those who hate our way of living are living amongst us & I fear the worst for the future.

It's time that we all took a stand. As Margrethe said, we've all been far too tolerant and lazy. And that doesn't just go for Denmark - it goes for the whole of Europe. Margrethe should exercise the right to say what she thinks - Elizabeth can't and would love to.

Have there been public threats against the Queen or other members of the royal family?

Queen Margrethe does not strike me as someone who would go and hide in the face of difficulty. Not everyone in Denmark can hide, and I think it would set the wrong example if the Queen were to go and hide if her subjects might be at risk.

In the days after the March 11 attacks in London and the London bombings, the Spanish royal family and members of the British family were front and centre, confronting the hatred and anger alongside their fellow citizens. Prince Felipe and Letizia (then still a fiancee) and the Queen went and visited the victims in the hospital, and later, Prince Felipe and both of his sisters marched in a protest along with members of the government and other citizens. I realize that these two examples are different than what is taking place in Denmark, but I think they are good examples of monarchs and royal families standing alongside their fellow citizens and representing a united front, whatever the stance may be, whether it's for freedom of speech or something else.

"Bin Laden our beloved, Denmark must be blown up," protesters in Ramallah chanted.

An imam at the Omari Mosque in Gaza City told 9,000 worshippers that those behind them should have their heads cut off.

"If they want a war of religions, we are ready," Hassan Sharaf, an imam in Nablus, said in his sermon.

In the Indonesian capital Jakarta, more than 150 hardline Muslims stormed a high-rise building housing the Danish Embassy and tore down and burned the country's white and red flag.

In London, hundreds of demonstrators converged on Denmark's Embassy and burned the Danish flag. Women wearing headscarves chanted and held banners proclaiming: "Kill the one who insults the Prophet."

So yeah, according to these radicals, QMII would seem like the best symbolic target.
