Maybe I Should Take This Danish Cartoon Flap Seriously

        In The Telegraph, David Rennie has a great scoop about the Danish Muslims who called attention to these cartoons in the Arab world, and Charles Moore has a very important column which begins:
        It's some time since I visited Palestine, so I may be out of date, but I don't remember seeing many Danish flags on sale there.  Not much demand, I suppose.  I raise the question because, as soon as the row about the cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in Jyllands-Posten broke, angry Muslims popped up in Gaza City, and many other places, well supplied with Danish flags ready to burn.  (In doing so, by the way, they offered a mortal insult to the most sacred symbol of my own religion, Christianity, since the Danish flag has a cross on it, but let that pass.)

        Why were those Danish flags to hand?  Who built up the stockpile so that they could be quickly dragged out right across the Muslim world and burnt where television cameras would come and look?  The more you study this story of "spontaneous" Muslim rage, the odder it seems.

        It turns out that Islamofascists have been planning this whole thing for months.

        We are at war with Islam, people.  Wake up a smell the liberty burning.

        The post and the column are also here.  And big hat tips to Dhimmi Watch and Hugh Hewitt.

  • As Muslims we are required to respect all religions, be it people who are Christians, Jewish, Hindu e.tc.

    So i’m really surprised at the pictures published in the newspaper, and also of their false nature. Maybe people should read about Prophet Muhummmad peace be upon him, and realise that he was a mercy to all mankind.

    Attacking the prophet peace be upon him by drawing such pictures is attacking Muslims directly.

    We dont draw pictures of other prophets like Abraham, Moses, Jesus, infact we respect them, and would never think to do such drawings.
