A 28-year-old Somalian man with residence permit in Denmark has been arrested this evening as he, armed with an axe and a knife, penetrated into the house of the cartoonist Kurt Westergaard in Aarhus. In relation with the arrest the police fired shots at the perpetrator who was hit in the knee and the hand.
The arrested person is charged with attempted assasination of the cartoonist Kurt Westergaard and a police officer on duty.
It is PET's impression that the attempted assasination of the cartoonist Kurt Westergaard is terror related. According to PET's information the arrested person has close relations to the Somalian terror organisation al-Shabaab and al-Qaida leaders in East Africa, and he is also suspected of having been involved in terror related activities during his stay in East Africa. The arrested person has as well been part of a terror related network with connection to Denmark. For some time this network has been subject of PET's investigation without, however, this having any relation to the cartoonist Kurt Westergaard.
In connection with the arrest, Director General of PET, Jakob Scharf states:
"PET views this matter very seriously. It once again confirms the terror threat directed towards Denmark and particularly towards the cartoonist Kurt Westergaard. The security measures which have been taken to protect Kurt Westergaard have proved efficient, and on this background it has been possible to prevent the assault on Kurt Westergaard. This specific case emphasizes the importance of supplementing PET's continuous surveillance and investigation against terror related networks with efficient security measures in relation to potential terror targets".

I don't call his cartoons a hoax, the "assault" is meant!
BTW, I don't believe these cartoons were published because of free speech but to provoke! Westervoort knew he was in trouble before publishing these cartoons.
If I go to a mosque during a mess and I call Mohammed a goat...... it isn't free speech but insulting, and that is exactly what Westervoort did.
He should be prosecuted for disturbing peace and provoking terrorism!

Denmark used to be one of the best places in the world to live, culturally and socially.
The Muslim hordes moved in and fully exploited the fair-mindedness and liberalism of the populace.
Politicians were easily extorted into accomodating a minority that knew how to gain what they wanted through intimidation. Now the majority Danes are being held captive in their own homes. Violence, sexual crimes and theft are rampant. The generous government subsidies for the poor are being abused and draining the economy. Soon the numbers of the Muslim minority will become a strong political force and further diminish the freedoms of choice and quality of life for everyone in the country.
Brain dead or bought off politicians tolerate the devastation of their society out of weakness and fear. A grim warning of what can happen when people are overly compliant that other countries should heed.

Does anyone remember the fiasco after the cartoons were published? There were worldwide riots. In fact I believe people died. Perhaps these were a figment of peoples imagination.

You can see the situation you describe in a more extreme form in the UK and to be honest if the government will do its utmost to give everything to the Muslim population we hardly blame them for taking it even thought its wrong.
The town i live in 10 years ago was about 80 20 native to foreign, its now at least 50 50 or 40 60 the other way. You know its bad when 14% of children in England don't speak English as their primary language

Funny how the news doesn't report any of the good things that muslim people do.
There are a billion muslims, you hear about the very select few who are crazy.
