An Irish newspaper publishes the cartoons too

Good news from Ireland (HT: Samizdata.net):

I take the greatest of pride in reporting the Danish cartoons are to be republished in The Blanket here in Belfast over the coming weeks. One of the two major papers in the city, The Belfast Telegraph, has published an interview with a representative of the site. They report Mr McIntyre expects this will provoke a reaction but told them it was important to stand up against religious fundamentalism:

We are putting out one of these cartoons a week in response to the Manifesto Against Totalitarianism which has been published by a string of writers and can be seen as a defence of those who publish the cartoons,” he said. “These writers are people who have had sanctions issued against them and they are still willing to speak out and it is right to put out these cartoons in defence of freedom of expression.
