The Islamofascists have won battles in Denmark
This first cartoon is from Jyllandsposten (the newspaper that initiated it all):
The text reads "I think I will consider drawing gnomes - that is, if Santa Claus won't become upset"
I understand if cartoonists these days are careful. Who wants to live hidden under police protection?
Now to something just as serious. This is a picture of a poster that right wing youth members of Dansk Folkeparti (the Muslim critical most right wing party in Denmark, supported by around 15% of the population) want to use in a campaign in Danish schools starting today:
København = Copenhagen. Otherwise no translation is necessary. In the campaign also went material stating: "For every day that goes by, the government becomes more apologetic." The campaign's purpose was to question the government's lack of measures in Denmark to protect the Danish population. Because at this time the government only worries about handling the crisis internationally.
What has happened, though, is that the campaign has been temporarily cancelled due to pressure on the Dansk Folkeparti party from the government.
Messages like these were given:
"It is unforgivable and tasteless to campaign on the basis of a crisis where Denmark is under incredibly high pressure."Of course this is in line with the Danish Prime Minister repeatedly imploring the Danish population to please not do anything to upset Muslims.
"They should be spanked".
The conclusion is clear. Censorship has been installed in Denmark. I expect this presentation (flash show about Islam) and others like it to come on Danish National TV running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, only interrupted with apologies and peaceful messages of the Danish Government seen groveling in the dust while kissing the feet of the most peace loving Imams (the ones asking only for decimation of the Danish population).
Fanatic Muslims - Free expression in Denmark: 1 - 0
I would like the Danish Prime Minister to explain to me, what will not upset Muslims? I would also like to have explained why this crisis is so big, that it is necessary to put a hold on free expression? Sure, 6 people have been killed and a very small percentage of Danish exports boycotted. But we are not just talking a trade war or even the elimination of some mad dictator.
No, we are talking defense of the cornerstone, the most holy of the democratic society, freedom. Countless human lives have been lost in the battle for human freedom. Our forefathers are rotating in their graves in frustration at this moment.
SHAME ON YOU, Mr. Prime Minister.
Here is a future Danish (Western!) protest on Muslim religious activities anno 2007:
To the peace loving Muslims of ...........
Venerable and honored Sirs,
We respect and believe in all religious practices, and yours most of all. Allah is great and the Prophet (peace be upon Him) also. We do not mean disrespect at all, but please permit us to ask for a dialogue concerning the events of the above picture. Stoning is an old cultural, time honored and religious activity which we of course respect deeply.
But in the interest of mutual dialogue we suggest you in the future to permit the victims to use sunglasses. It is clear from the picture, that the sun is extremely bothersome. Of course the sunglasses could be removed before the actual religious activity.
It is by no means a demand or even a criticism, but merely a suggestion from our side. It will have no effect what so ever on our yearly aid to your country. But we do in fact have a program to cover the expense of the above mentioned sunglasses. It is our program: "Foreign aid to protect and promote religious practices." It is based on the recent amendments to our constitution, namely sections 81, 82 and 93.
On the respectful behalf of the Danish government,
Anders Fogh Rasmussen,
Prime Minister of Denmark
