Norwegian Newspaper Reprints Prophet Mohammed Cartoons


THE TELEGRAPH: The Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten has reproduced the controversial Danish cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.

They were used to illustrate an article about Kurt Westergaard, the Danish cartoonist whose home was broken into by an Islamist armed with an axe a week ago.

It printed six out of the 12 drawings that infuriated Muslims around the world when the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten first published them in 2005.

Several of the drawings were seen as linking Islam and its revered prophet to terrorism and suicide bombings, with Westergaard's cartoon showing him wearing a turban in the shape of a bomb. >>> | Friday, January 08, 2010

So I guess that means Muslims are at war with Norway, yes?

Wait, aren't Muslims already at war with kafir already?

Statement from the meeting of the Executive Committee of The European

Council of Religious Leaders, Oslo February 6. 2006

We strongly appeal to responsible leaders of all faiths to do their utmost to reject and do their utmost to stop the ongoing acts of violence and terror, which are carried out in the name of God. We condemn the misuse of freedom of expression to blaspheme that which is holy for believers. All religions hold certain symbols and realities of faith to be holy, and feel particularly strongly about these. These feelings should be respected by all people, regardless of faith. The deeply offensive series of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad are a grievous affront to most of the world’s 1.3 billion Muslims. As such, they are also deeply offensive to members of other religious communities. We join the appeal from The European Islamic Conference to Muslims not to be carried away by anger, and not to react with violence. We also welcome and affirm the conciliatory message of the Muslim Council of Britain.

We uphold the rights of free expression as fundamental to democracy and human rights, and acknowledge the fact that freedom of religion is closely connected to and dependent upon freedom of expression. We see it as a violation of this freedom when it is used without consideration of possible harmful effects on individuals and groups, especially in a very volatile situation.
