Capitol Source: Danish Editor Doesn't Regret Publishing Mohammad Cartoons

Posted: Jan 12, 2015 9:00 AM

Protecting the freedom of speech is becoming increasingly important in the aftermath of the Islamic extremists' attack on a satirical magazine in Paris, which left 12 people dead on Jan. 7. 

"You do not prevent violence by outlawing certain kinds of speech," according to Flemming Rose, cultural editor of The Jyllands-Posten, a Danish newspaper which published 12 cartoons of Mohammad in 2005. 

"I think it is a fundamental principle in a liberal democracy that you should not have the right not to be offended," Rose stated. 

Rose discusses the importance of not giving into fear during this week's episode of "Capitol Source."
