A thousand Muslim taxi drivers parked their cars in the center of Oslo Friday night, in protest of Dagbladet's printing of the Muhammad cartoon.

I believe there are about 2,400 taxi cabs in Oslo, so 1,000 is nearly half of them.

This article is from 2007, but still interesting:
Aftenposten: Taxi drivers linked to gangs

Aftenposten followed up over the weekend on earlier reports of what's known locally as taxijuks, that is, widespread fraud that's enriched Pakistani-Norwegian taxi drivers and owners, who in turn send much of their ill-gotten gains back to Pakistan in an effort to hide assets from Norwegian tax authorities


Other taxi owners and drivers charged with tax evasion in Norway are known to have large, expensive homes in Pakistan, where their families live affluent lives.


Oslo police, meanwhile, have also uncovered ties between criminal Pakistani gangs in Oslo and more than 40 taxi drivers. The drivers are suspected of carrying gang members and their weapons, as well as drugs.


Many honest taxi drivers in Oslo and elsewhere in Norway now fear for the reputation of the entire industry

The protesting taxi drivers in Oslo also parked their cars on Monday. They have now been warned: if they do it again, they'll lose their taxi license. However, the drivers says they'll continue with their actions until Dagbladet apologizes for printing the cartoon.

In Norwegian:
Truer med å inndra drosjeløyver

Google translated ("English")

To VG said several of the drivers that they will continue attacks until Dagbladet apologize

Danish daily issues apology over prophet drawing

Fri Feb 26, 10:13 am ET
COPENHAGEN – A Danish newspaper on Friday apologized for offending Muslims by reprinting a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad with a bomb-shaped turban, rekindling heated debate about the limits of freedom of speech.

Danish daily Politiken said its apology was part of a settlement with a Saudi lawyer representing eight Muslim groups in the Middle East and Australia.

It drew strong criticism among Danish media, which previously had stood united in rejecting calls to apologize for 12 Muhammad cartoons

Danish daily issues apology over prophet drawing

"Politiken's pathetic prostrating before a Saudi lawyer takes the first prize in stupidity," said Joern Mikkelsen, editor in chief of Jyllands-Posten, which first printed the 12 cartoons.

At Copenhagen newspaper Berlingske Tidende, chief editor Lisbeth Knudsen called the apology "embarrassing and shameful." And Mogens Blicher Bjerregaard, head of the Danish Union of Journalists, said Politiken was "kneeling before opponents of the freedom of press."

Westergaard, who earlier this year had to lock himself inside a safe room when an ax-wielding (muslim) attacker broke into his home, said he believed the apology was prompted by fear.

The Saudi lawyer representing the Muslim groups, Faisal Yamani, has been demanding apologies from 11 Danish newspapers that reprinted the cartoon.

The Muhammed cartoon will not disappear

The prophet's true believers have now hired a top Saudi Arabian lawyer, Faisal Yamani, to nail the Danish newspapers to the cross because they reprinted the Muhammed cartoons in February 2008.

It has not been possible to get the Saudi lawyer,Faisal Yamani, to reveal who his clients are

Danish cartoonist put on indefinite leave following attacks

April 22, 2010

Danish cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, who has been attacked and repeatedly threatened over a drawing of Prophet Mohammed, has been placed on indefinite leave by his newspaper "for security reasons," he told AFP Thursday.

"It is forced vacation but it looks a lot like I'm being retired," the 75-year-old cartoonist said, adding that he himself still had an "insatiable desire" to work.


"It's a pity. I have become a too heavy burden and a very big security risk," he said

Lars Vilks Attacked

Swedish artist Lars Vilks was attacked today at a University in Sweden. He escaped uninjured, but broke his glasses.

Swedish artist attacked during free-speech lecture

A Swedish artist who angered Muslims by depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a dog was assaulted Tuesday while giving a university lecture about the limits of artistic freedom.

Lars Vilks told The Associated Press a man in the front row ran up to him and head-butted him during a lecture, breaking his glasses but leaving him uninjured.


Vilks made his rough sketch more than a year after 12 Danish newspaper cartoons of the prophet sparked furious protests in Muslim countries in 2006

Mohammad cartoonist attacked at lecture

In March an American who called herself Jihad Jane was charged with plotting to kill the Swede and using the internet to enlist co-conspirators.

It seems like some higher power or something protected him from getting injured...

Home of Swedish Muhammad cartoonist attacked

Saturday, May 15, 2010; 10:12 AM

STOCKHOLM -- The home of a Swedish artist who once drew a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad as a dog has been hit by a suspected arson attack, police said Saturday.

Lars Vilks, who lives in Nyhamnslage in southern Sweden, was not at home during the attack late Friday night and no one was reported injured.

Police were alerted just before noon Saturday, as people passing by the artist's house noted that several windows had been smashed. When officers arrived, they discovered plastic bottles filled with gasoline and fire damage on the surface of the building. Attackers are also suspected of having tried setting the inside of house on fire, but the flames are thought to have fizzled out.

Police have no suspects in the case[/url]

Tomorrow is the 5th anniversary for the Mohammed charicatures. They are to be reprinted in Flemming Rose's new book.

Drawings cause concern again

Jyllands-Posten culture editor Flemming Rose is due to reprint the drawings in a new book about the freedom of speech, which hits the market on the day of the anniversary itself.

It's odd to see this thread up here every so often. Reminds me of the older days...when the religiously themed forums on here were untamed and fiery.


I find it odd that the same people who are saying "Muslims have every right to build a Mosque near Ground Zero, but they shouldn't because it's offensive" are the same people who were up in arms to defend the Denmark cartoonists. These cartoons can be seen as offensive, but the artists still have every right to draw them and should be celebrated for it according to some.

Now, I'm not going to say I'm against the cartoons, I'm all for free speech and think that they should be allowed to do whatever they please without reprimand, but the Muslims shouldn't be subject to the same sort of draconian standard that some on their side expected the west to live up to.

We live in a free society, we're better than that.

Suicide bomber in central Stockholm

A car exploded at the busy shopping street Drottninggatan in central Stockholm. [...]
The Swedish news agency TT reports that both them and the Swedish Security Service received a video-film only ten minutes before the explosions.

In the film a man addresses to "Sweden and the Swedish people". He, among else, refers to the Swedish silence on artist Lars Vilks paintings of the muslim prophet Mohammed, the Swedish soldiers in Afghanistan, saying that "now shall your children, daughters and sisters die as our brothers and sisters and children are dying."

Headline: "Dick blows himself up in Sweden. Americans, Israelis, Jordanians, Indians, South Africans, Mexicans, Brazilians, Spanish, and the British shrug and move on"

I like how you're trying so hard to make it seem existential. It's scary, sure - but so is a guy shooting up the Holocaust museum, or someone blowing up a car in Belfast, or quintuple homicides in Tripura.

All it is is some dick of a dude who thinks he needs to use violence to assuage his own ego. Sort of like a US gangbanger needs to blow someone away to fix their "rep."

And mohammad is on the naughty list of Denmark, many of his followers come here, and do nothing good to the the native population, and naive people keep letting them in .... it will end up with some sort of trouble.

The danish people won't be walked over by people following a pedophile, immoral highway robber and murderer - by his own admission, so don't flame me over that, flame him.
