Denmark to archive Muhammad cartoons

The 12 cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad which led to violent protesting throughout the Muslim world and continues to cause deaths, turmoil and misunderstanding around the world, will be archived by Denmark’s National Library:

Despite objections from some Muslim leaders, the library in the Danish capital will preserve the 12 cartoons for research purposes but will not make them available to the public for at least 10 years, spokeswoman Jytte Pedersen said.

“It is not our intention to provoke or anything like that. We are preserving them for future generations,” she said.


In a hopeful sign that people are just sick of this, the Danish-Muslim organization which sparked the original protests doesn’t plan any formal protest this time.
