Danes in muslim countries have been warned and told to be careful. The moderate muslim politician Naser Khader (Ny Allianse) have become friends with Pia Kjærsgaard (DF). He now suggests that Denmark should remove the blasphemy paragraph from the law. Pia has previously suggested it, but was voted down. Now it seems like they might get the blasphemy paragraph removed. According to Khader, Salman Rushdie could have broken this law if he had written the Satanic Verses in Denmark. It's an ancient law which should be removed.

The Pope? They want the Pope to apologize? Huh? Is this for real?

I'm assuming. The caption under the photo says,

Just goes to show how likely the information disseminated to the masses in countries with state-controlled media is inaccurate.

I remember during the previous protests of the cartoons. They demanded that the President of Denmark should apologize. Denmark doesn't have a President. Maybe they believe that Denmark has its own Pope as well? I don't know...

Well, one can argue that the cartoon in question was meant "to show different views", as you put it. If it's the view of the artist that certain interpretation of Islam advocates terrorism, he must be free to express this view. I totally support and admire him.

This is going to be the straw the broke the camel's back.
The Islamic world is going to go berzerk. People are going to die. Property is going to be destroyed. All because of Religion. They're not the first ones to do this. The world sees organized religion as a threat, where a unified people can affect economy on a world wide scale. In the name of the WTO, UN and the like, this is not acceptable behavior for a civilized world. The economy is more important than religion. The money must keep moving.

I see the World Organizations creating a new entity for themselves to control Religion. They have all the other agencies to unite the world.

Why is the World Religious Organization (WRO) taking so long to create?

Sudan is now boycotting Denmark. And once again, completely innocent people receive death threats, even though they have nothing to do with the cartoons. Protesters in Sudan also calls for Bin Laden to attack Denmark.

A Hamas tv-show for children encourages kids to kill Kurt Westergaard...

A Palestinian spokesman in Norway tried to defend this video, by calling it "a misunderstanding". He claimed that the Palestinian word for "kill" is almost the same as the word for "hug". So he apparently tried to make it look like they encourages them to hug the cartoonist, and not to kill him.
However, the boss of the TV station apologised and admitted error. He said it came "out of control". It was a live show, and this wouldn't have happened if they've had time to edit, he said.

Why don't those who are offended leave Denmark and those not living there refuse to buy or sell to Denmark.

An Egyptian newspaper misquoted him! They said he told all muslims to go to Hell, when he in fact told only the extremists from Hizb-ut-Tahrir to go to Hell. And they also claimed that he was the leader of a far-right party, when he is in fact the leader of the Socialist People's Party (currently the biggest leftist party in Denmark). The Danes have contacted the Egyptian newspaper, who promised to publish a correction.

Two men, arrested at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago on October 3rd, apparently planned terror attacks against Jyllandsposten and/or planned to kill Flemming Rose and Kurt Westergaard.

U.S. arrests in cartoon terrorism plans

27. okt 2009

Two men – a 49-year-old U.S. national and a 48-year-old Canadian national - are under arrest in Chicago on charges of preparing a terrorist attack against the Jyllands-Posten newspaper and other targets in Denmark. Jyllands-Posten was the newspaper which published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed.


The Chicago Tribune says that Headley was detained at the O’Hare International Airport on October 3rd and has allegedly admitted to receiving training from Lashkar-e-Taiba and is reported to have acknowledged that the plan called for either an attack on Jyllands-Postens building or the killing of the newspaper’s cultural editor and the cartoonist Kurt Westergaard.


Those arrested are said by PET to have been in close contact with the Lashkar-e-Taiba, al-Qaeda and Harakat-ul-Jihad Islami terrorist organisations in connection with planning for the attack

Here's some more details on the terror plot.

Bloomberg: Two Chicago Men Charged in Alleged Danish Terror Plot (Update4)

Oct. 27 (Bloomberg)

Headley allegedly visited two different Jyllands-Posten offices in January, one in Copenhagen and another in Viby, Denmark. At the Copenhagen site, he told employees he was visiting on behalf of First World Immigration Services


The main targets were the newspaper’s Viby and Copenhagen offices, Scharf said today at a press conference. Kurt Westergaard, the cartoonist who drew the picture of Muhammad wearing a bomb in his turban, and Flemming Rose, an editor at the newspaper who was responsible for printing the drawings, were two specific targets of the planned attack, Scharf said.


The planned attacks would have involved “hand weapons and explosives,” Scharf said.

“We’re continuing the investigations and can’t rule out that it will lead to more arrests,”

Bomb Alert

Kurt Westergaard and all neighbors living within 100 meters were evacuated today. Someone had sent him a suspicious package. A bomb squad was sent to the scene.

Package causes cartoonist evacuation

Eastern Jutland police say that the package measured 20 by 40 was on the stairs in front of the artist’s home.

“Kurt Westergaard has been evacuated,” says Superintendant Mogens Brøndum adding that neighbours to a distance of 100 metres - some 25 households - had also been evacuated.

After the bomb squad had dealt with the package, police cordons were removed from the area. It is not yet known what the package contained and investigatioins continue.

Norwegian newspaper reprints Prophet Mohammed cartoons

On Jan 2, an axe-wielding 28-year-old man broke into Westergaard's home screaming for "revenge" and "blood". Police - alerted by the cartoonist who had hidden in a panic room - shot and arrested him.

Aftenposten's editor, Hilde Haugsgjerd, said it seemed "natural and justified to republish the artistic and journalistic body of work that is likely the cause of this violence".

So, of course...

link don't want to sell a painting by Kurt Westergaard. The money for the painting was supposed to go to earthquake victims in Haiti. The painting itself isn't controversal at all. The only reason they don't want to sell it, is because it's been made by Kurt Westergaard. They don't dare to sell it in fear of being hit by extremists.

Auctioneer rejects Westergaard painting

19. jan 2010

There has been widespread political criticism in Denmark of a decision by the Internet auctioneers not to auction off a painting by cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, the proceeds of which were to go to earthquake relief in Haiti.


Minister for Culture Carina Christensen says the move gives a wrong signal and has urged the company to review its decision, while Socialist People’s Party Leader Villy Søvndal says’s decision is ridiculous
