There is an update on the situation of Roj TV, from blogger Henrik at Viking Observer, Convenient outrage in unconvenient pasts , including a caricature from the Turkish press showing a naked Ocalan and Danish PM Rasmussen in bed together.

A quote from Hürriyet, carried in the Viking Observer post:

Denmark shows no tolerance over Tempo magazine’s cartoon

A Turkish magazine, Tempo, published the controversial cartoon of a naked PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan and Danish Prime Minister Andres Fogh Rasmussen watching TV in bed together, in reaction to the Danish stance on PKK mouthpiece Roj TV, on Saturday.

In reply to the cartoon, Denmark showed no tolerance with dailies complaining about the Turkish reaction. Danish daily Ekstra Bladet says that the cartoon had been published in retaliation for Danish refusal to ban Roj TV, and Danish daily Politiken

As Henrik observes:

So if Danish papers dont tow the Turkish party line, they are “not showing tolerance”. Sounds like something we have heard before, doesnt it?

Yes, Henrik. Sounds all too familiar to me.
