Germany - Germans stand up to Muslims

Germany discovers a spine.

A Mozart opera cancelled for fears of protests over depicting the beheading of Muhammad is go ahead in Berlin.

The Deutsche Oper in the German capital said the production of Idomeneo will be staged after it received a new security assessment from the police.

Four performances of the opera were dropped in September after the risks of staging it were deemed "incalculable".

The decision, taken in the wake of the Danish Muhammad cartoons row, sparked a debate about free speech in Germany.

Maybe the Germans have discovered that Muslim appeasement never works. All you get are calls for yet more appeasement.
