Mohammed Cartoons

The Brussels Journal reports that Norway’s foreign minister has apologised to Muslims for the publication of cartoons of Mohammed in a Norwegian magazine (via Dhimmi Watch). In an email to Norwegian embassies he said:
I am sorry that the publication of a few cartoons in the Norwegian paper Magazinet has caused unrest among Muslims.
Let it be clear that the Norwegian government condemns every expression or act which expresses contempt for people on the basis of their religion or ethnic origin.
What, something like “You stupid, cowardly Nordic cunt, Jonas Gahr Støre”? He continues:
Freedom of expression is one of the pillars of Norwegian society. This includes tolerance for opinions that not everyone shares.
Unless it’s an opinion that upsets Muslims, of course.

Denmark, where the cartoons were originally published in Jyllands-Posten, is now facing a boycott of its goods from the Muslim world. To its credit, the Danish government has refused to grovel in the manner of a Norwegian foreign minister.

On Tuesday the Brussels Journal produced an article by Paul Belien called “European Appeasement Reinforces Muslim Extremism”. He quotes Dutch MP Ayaan Hirsi Ali:
Sadly, she says, there is no free and open debate “because of the complacency and self-censorship of Europe’s political and intellectual elites, the self-pity of the Muslims, and the threat of violence by the jihadists.”
That a Somali-born woman living under 24-hour armed guard cares more for free expression than those pampered cowardly elites is shameful. Belien also cites an article from journalist Mona Eltahawy, an Egyptian-born Muslim woman:
The initial printing of the cartoons in Denmark led to death threats being issued against the artists, demonstrations in Kashmir, and condemnation from 11 countries. What did any of this achieve but prove the original point of the newspaper’s culture editor, that artists in Europe were censoring themselves because they feared Muslim reaction?
[…]
Muslims seem to forget that just because they are prohibited from representing the prophet in any way, this does not apply to everybody else.
As Belien states:
We need Muslims like Ms Eltahawy, who speak out against the extremists. We need Western journalists and politicians who support them by not allowing themselves to be intimidated by the extremists. But where are these journalists and politicians?
It’s pretty clear we can’t rely on them, so Belien proposes his own solution:
The best way to end the whole cartoon affair would be for as many websites, blogs and papers in Europe just to publish the cartoons in an act of defiance to extremists.
I fear he’s being a bit optimistic if he thinks that will stop the affair, but the act of defiance he proposes is vital. Here are the cartoons. If you have a blog, please put them up (click image to enlarge).




Update. L'Ombre de l'Olivier has had the cartoons up for ages. USSNeverdock also has them. And Irene The Woman says "Buy Danish". I'm having a Danish bacon sarnie right now, Irene.

Thank goodness for Blogs..
CNN.com is decidedly unhelpful in the acquisition of non-danish material on this subject.
Being Danish I only really get to see *our* perspective.. It is a crime against free press and free speech that this has been hushed to such an extent in anglospheric media.

Please host these images (below) as well, they have to be available in many places. Free speech is everything, including insulting religions. help to fight the cyberfight against oppression and censorship

The story of Jyllands-Posten's Mohammed Cartoons started with this book.

The Koran and the life of the prophet Mohammed by Kaare Bluitgen.

Original in Danish: Koranen og profeten Muhammeds liv - Kåre Bluitgen - Høst & Søn
Høst & Søn Denmark ISBN 87-638-0049-7 24-01-05

It was this book that started the whole row. The author Kaare Bluitgen was not able to find an artist who would draw illustrations for the book, in fear of Muslim reprisals. This started editor of Jyllands Posten Flemming rose to ask a number of artists to draw Muhammed. Now Danish goods are being boycotted in Muslim countries, and Danes have been threatened, cars burnt, and the latest reports say Danes have been molested..

Here are the pictures from the book which started it all. I hope it is going to be translated into many languages!
It is best to teach children from an early age about the terror of islam and his terrible prophet. The book is based on the oldest authentic Muslim texts, and is not an 'anti-islam propaganda book', other than what the content of those satanic verses are completely on their own, without the help of any interpretor. Kaare Bluitgen is a socialist who lived in the Copenhagen Muslim Ghetto Noerrebro, where he watched how his children were being intimidated by Muslims and their religion. He decided to speak up. He is no right wing supporter but a socialist!

Download the pictures for safekeeping, and post them on other boards please.


Or for linking to pics at boards (but how long will they be there?) Don't just watch; save them and spread them.

Did you know that importing or owning a bible is a criminal offence in Saudi Arabia?
That Coptic Christians are persecuted in Egypt? How can we take protests from these countries even remotely serious?

And they dare to protest? Why isn't this mentioned in the big media and presented to the islamic lowlifes who feel terribly insulted to see what everybody knows: Mohammed was a peadophile terrorist, and though not all muslims are terrorists today, most terrorists are muslims. Mohammed was a bloody murderer and anybody who follows him member of the worlds biggest terrorist organization: ISLAM.

This whole issue is just more verification that islamic terrorists are nothing but intimidating cave men with guns and bombs. 1400 years have passed and the whole lot of them have made zero progress in dealing with the human element. When there's no outside concerns, they take to murdering each other. I believe it's genetic, likely the result of centuries of inhaling smoldering camel crap used to heat their tents and cook their food. If the prevalent theory is achievement of heaven by martyrdom, we ought not to object, but rather oblige them post haste, so that the human race can get on with living without this awful cancer disrupting so many lives.

It is the easiest thing in the world to say "they call themselves muslim but are not really"...what a naive statement to make. Surely you have a little more intellectual capital than to believe this. Please, I work amongst muslims who hailed 911 a great victory for Allah! I am talking about young kids as old as 8 years celebrating the intimely death of thousands...you call that Allah....I call it as evil as can be. It is time the world take a strong stance against muslims living in the western world, wearing Soviet, Levi, Gucci and driving luxorious cars...yet do not hesitate to critisise the western value system in which they become so affluent. Perfect example is South Africa. Here muslims prospered under apartheids evil laws, got filthy rich...and you know how? With black labour in their factories. What a bunch of fascist opportunists.

Hello all,

I can see lots of words against Islam here, and although I can easily answer any of them, but, I am not going to defend Islam or Muslims. All what I want to say is that, as you are matured enough and you are so keen about freedom, I am asking you or even beg you to read a little about Islam and prophet Mohamed before talking more about him or about Islam.
If you need any help in that just email me to mahallam@hotmail.com

i think the only end of this problem is that all these cartoons should be removed and destroyed and the those who are involve in the making of these cartoon should apologies in the public. The government should also discourage any other act this kind.

The newspaper (EXTREAM RIGHT) that has published the cartoon is not INTELLIGENT and it is most likely driven by politics. OPEN YOUR EYES AND ASK YOUR SELF THIS SIMPLE QUESTION WHY THESE CARTOONS HAS BEEN PUBLISHED NOW !!!. USA would like to drive Europ in its war against IRAN and SYRIA and seems that the danish state didn't understand the trick.
