Denmark to Sudan: Screw You!

After the "President" (read dictator) of Sudan once again have threatened Denmark with a boycott over the reprinting of the so-called "Prophet" Mohamed, the Danish Minister of Development, Ulla Tørness, have decided that boycott is a two-way street.

Sudan owes some two billion kroner (400 million US dollars) to Denmark, and the Danish government was negotiating with the Sudanese to release that debt.

Not anymore. This from Berlingske Tidende: (Link in Danish, my excerpt.)

The answer [to the boycott threats] will be, according to Minister of Development Ulla Tørness, that Denmark will not release Sudan's debt.

"In the international negotiations about releasing Sudan's debt, it will be Denmark's viewpoint that Sudan shall not have a release," says Ulla Tørness.

Sudan's ambassador has been summoned to a meeting, where he is to explain the calling to a boycott.

Denmark will not withdraw the humanitarian aid of some 52 million dollars that is going primarily to Darfur and the southern Sudan.

"Wanna play hardball? OK, I'll show you what hardball is!"

Cartoonist on TV

The famous Kurt Westergaard, creator of the "bomb in the turban" was interviewed on Danish TV earlier this month, shortly after a plot on his life was foiled by the Security Police.

The interview is in three parts, each around 8 minutes, and with English subtitles.

He's a brave old geezer, that much I can tell you.

Hamas Rabbit to Cartoonist: I'll Eat You!

So, you're a Palestinian kid. On your way home from school you helped your older brothers launch a few dozen rockets into Israel. You're naturally tired so you relax with a bit of TV before homework and dinner time. And this is what you see.

(Via Hodja)

Not exactly the Teletubbies, more like a depraved Bugs Bunny.
A transcript can be seen here.

My only question is this: Why - in the name of all that is holy - why is the western world pouring an additional 7,4 billions dollars into this cesspool of hatred and intolerance?

The Palestinians have been showered in money and aid for decades and their only response is "kill the infidels who sends us money and aid!"

I say f**k'em! Death threats and boycott, eh? Well, boycott is a two-way street. Buy as many Israeli goods you can get your hands on, and shun anything from the Muslim world. (Apart from oil, that should be an easy task.)

Oh, and bye the bye Assud. Rabbits are excellent on the dinner plate. Thought you might want to know.

I received this in an e-mail yesterday and thought I'd pass it on. It's from the dutch branch of Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) and is a call to support Denmark.

I bring it in its entirety:
To: The People of Denmark through SIOE/SIAD

The Danish People are confronted with a jihad against their freedom and the fundamental values.

Now is the time for all Europeans to join forces and stand side by side with the free Danes in their time of tribulation, as the struggle for their freedom is our own. No longer can we afford to think in national terms, the jihad launched against Denmark is the same as is being waged against all Europeans.

If we want to ensure freedom for our children and grandchildren than not only must join forces it is our duty. Remaining inactive is no option and utterly unacceptable.

Sioe Netherlands will hand your signatures over during the upcoming demonstration in Denmark.

Sign this petition right now we owe it to the brave people of Denmark.

Hizb demo in Copenhagen

Yesterday a large demonstration organized by the fundamentalist Hizb ut-Tahrir took place in Copenhagen, protesting the reprinting of the Mohammed-cartoons. About a 1000 participants took the streets and listened to the spokesman, Fadi Abdullatif - a man convicted for racism and death threats against Jews and the Prime minister in Denmark.

Said Fadi Abdullatif got up on his soapbox and used his freedom of speech to attack the freedom of speech of others. According to Danish daily Politiken the pious Muslim spake thus:
"We are gathered here today becouse Freedom of Speech is a cursed instrument in the hands of politicians".

"In Islam we are duty bound to speak the truth, freedom of speech is the freedom to lie"

Can you say Taqiya mr. Abullatif?
Once again our dear prophet is subjected to insults and attacks. It is part of a camaign to make us give up our faith but they will never win," said Abdullatif at which point the crowd began chanting: God is Great.

"Only the Caliphate will be able to stop these insults. A state that reacts with the sword and not with words. A state that shows the price for insulting the Prophet."

"The time has come to end the silence and submission. Arise and establish a Caliphate that lives for the sake of Islam and defends the Koran, Muhammed and his sharia."

This footage (as well as the photos above) was found at Steens blog (Video 3:00)
Is this Copenhagen or Gaza?

At least they make no secret of their intentions. We live in interesting times.

UPDATE: Steen informs me that he is not the one who made the footage. Original post corrected.

Intifada in Copenhagen ?

It would seem like Denmark is experiencing an intifada light these days - or rather nights. For the fifth night i a row smallish groups of Muslim immigrant "youths" have stirred up trouble in the streets of Copenhagen, setting fire to garbage containers and ambushing the firefighters.

At least that's how it started out, but now things seems to be getting out of hand.

The riots are spreading fast and are becoming more violent with "carbacues" and attacks on media reporting in the area. Trucks from DR TV and TV2 have been stoned and a photographer from Jyllands-Posten was wrestled to the ground and kicked in the head by half a dozen "youths."

Here's a small time line with thanks to TV2: (My excerpt.)

Feb. 9: The trouble starts when a garbage container is set ablaze and rolled out into the street in Nørrebro. Firefighters are attacked with rocks and needs police backup to put the fire out. All is calm again around midnight.

Feb. 10: Containers are set on fire as well as several cars and once again firefighters need police protection. The police uses teargas to disperse the vandals. 11 are arrested.

Feb. 11: More container-fires as well as bonfires in the street. The trouble spreads to Vesterbro - another neighborhood - two cars are burned. One arrest.

Feb. 13: The trouble has now spread all over Copenhagen. Two cars are set on fire in Vesterbro, four people arrested in conjunction with that crime. The neighborhoods and suburbs Tingbjerg, Ishøj, Rødovre and Taastrup are plagued by fires.
In Århus, Jutland a city bus is bombarded with rocks and have to be escorted out of danger by police.

Feb 14: In Tingbjerg four postal vans are set ablaze. An apartment building in Nørrebro has to be evacuated in the middle of the night as a fire nearby is threatening to spread. The power grid is sabotaged and an entire neighborhood is blackened out around 1 am.
All in all 17 people have been arrested for arson and disturbing the peace. 14 cars have been burned as well as 20 garbage containers. There are 14 reports of vandalism such as smashing store windows.

The excuse from the "youths" at the start up was that it was "unjust" that the cops picked on them at routine checks "only because we're colored!" Then came the thwarted assassination plot on the cartoonist Kurt Westergaard and the subsequent decision to deport two Tunisian nationals. This apparently was soooo unjust to the Muslim community that a carbeque seemed to be in in order.

The police is on high alert from now and on through the weekend. I wish it would rain cats and dogs, that should cool tempers, but alas it's going to be cold and clear tonight.

I realize this isn't anything like the riots in Paris last summer - heck this probably isn't anything like a normal night in Paris, but it's quite unusual in Denmark.

So far at least!

Murder Plot Against Cartoonist Foiled

A plot to murder one of the 12 cartoonists who published the Motoons, was foiled early this morning when police and the Danish Security and Intelligence Service arrested 3 persons in Århus - Denmark's second largest city and home to Jyllands-Posten's headquarters.

This from Jyllands-Posten: (Link in English.)
Early Tuesday morning, Danish police arrested several people with a Muslim background suspected of conspiring to kill Kurt Westergaard, a Danish cartoonist with Morgenavisen Jyllands-Posten.

Kurt Westergaard is one of the 12 cartoonists who on 30 September 2005 published cartoons of Muslim prophet Mohammed.

The group arrested includes Danish as well as foreign citizens. The Danish Security and Intelligence Service have followed the group for months.

The cartoons and an explanatory article led, as is well known, to the so-called Mohammed crisis involving violent demonstrations, the boycott of Danish goods and the burning of Danish embassies.

Kurt Westergaard’s cartoon depicting the prophet wearing a bomb turban with a lit fuse attracted particular attention. What the cartoonist wanted to say with his cartoon was that many people exploit the prophet to legitimize terror. However, the cartoon was widely seen as a depiction of the prophet as a terrorist.

Note that there's no mention of religion in the article. Must be those dammed Methodists again.

The police explicitly calls the plot "attempted terror related homicide!" What's wrong with these insensitive officials? Don't they know the wording is "Anti Islamic Activity"?

Anyway, there will be a press conference later today, and I'll update this as I know more.

UPDATE: Apparently only 3 persons where arrested though initial reports said 5. Original post corrected.
One is a 40-year old Moroccan with Danish citizenship who will be released after interrogation, the other two are Tunisian nationals. They are being held until they can be expelled administratively as they are seen as a threat to national security. (You don't say...)

Security police said they didn't want to take any chances and moved preventive at an early stage after the group had been under surveillance for several months.

The target, Kurt Westergaard, 73, and his wife have had round-the-clock protection and have been forced to move around the last 3 months as the terrorists allegedly were plotting to assassinate him in his own home.

UPDATE 2: See also WaPo, CNN, BBC, Guardian, and Times for more. (With thanks to Western Resistance for the links.)

Al-Jazeera demands MoToon-apology - from Iceland !


The president of Iceland sits down for an interview with Al-Jazeera while on a trip to Qatar, and all of a sudden the journalist wants to know if Iceland will apologize for the Danish Cartoons:

Here is what president Grimsson said to radio Iceland about the interview:
”In fact he tried to put pressure on me regarding two things. He asked if I would apologize for the behaviour of the Danes, and if I would ask forgiveness for what they did, this insult, this provocation, this disgrace – he used very strong words – that the Danes had demonstrated with the publication of these caricatures. But of course this was not part of my responsibilities. And to tell you the truth I didn’t expect that this case was still alive and such a hot issue that the most important tv-station in the Arab world found it necessary to raise it during a visit by the president of Iceland, and they wanted to discuss it in detail.”

This thing just won't go away, will it.

Iceland has been independent since 1944.
