News from Denmark

The cartoon jihad in Denmark is escalating. Now the Jamaat-e-Islami party in Pakistan (which was founded by Maulana Maududi, whose jihadist theory Robert Spencer discusses in Onward Muslim Soldiers) is offering a reward to anyone who kills any of the artists.

So far the Danish authorities have reacted well, emphasizing that freedom of speech prevails in Denmark. And certainly it is true that Christians and other religious groups endure lampoon and attack all over the Western world without resorting to threats and violence.

Now this story has become really interesting, since it has become internationalized a la the Rushdie affair. It bears following even though the Pakistani ambassador in Denmark has distanced itself from the threats.

Looks like the Koran is really the “Muhhammad’s Believe it or Else“. Well, I do think these girls fulfill Muhammad’s view of fashion.
