Muslims protest Swedish newspaper pictures

Sep 1, 2007 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Earth Times

“Nerikes Allehanda published the picture to illustrate a story. It's irrational to regard their decision to publish as being offensive to Muslims.”

OREBRO, Sweden, Aug. 31 About 300 people demonstrated outside a Swedish newspaper Friday to protest pictures deemed offensive to Islam. via Earth Times

in fact I need to understand one thing.

Why do you want us to respect Occupation , giving our countries , our brains ,our Monies to our lord America after that you will not respect us until follow your religion as Allah Said in Quran :(And the Jews will not be pleased with thee, nor will the Christians, till thou follow their creed. Say: Lo! the guidance of Allah (Himself) is Guidance. And if thou shouldst follow their desires after the knowledge which hath come unto thee, then wouldst thou have from Allah no protecting friend nor helper.)

question :

Do you support any resistance in any side of world ? is the resistance right for human been ?
this question no need to answer .

Many of the insurgents in Iraq are Saudis. The reason we know this is we have found this out when we kill or capture.

The insurgents along with the Mahdi Army and various Sunni Militia do not want Iraq to have a democratic form of government. The car bombings are done by these people.

The leader of al-Qaida in Iraq offered money for the murder of a Swedish cartoonist and his editor who recently produced images deemed insulting to Islam, according to a statement carried by Islamist Web sites Saturday.

In a half hour audio file entitled "They plotted yet God too was plotting," Abu Omar al-Baghdadi also named the other insurgent groups in Iraq that al-Qaida was fighting and promised new attacks, particularly against the minority Yazidi sect.

"We are calling for the assassination of cartoonist Lars Vilks who dared insult our Prophet, peace be upon him, and we announce a reward during this generous month of Ramadan of $100,000 for the one who kills this criminal," the transcript on the Web site said.

The al-Qaida leader upped the reward for Vilks' death to $150,000 if he was "slaughtered like a lamb" and offered $50,000 for the killing of the editor of Nerikes Allehanda, the Swedish paper that printed Vilks' cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad with a dog's body on Aug. 19.

Vilks said from Sweden he believed the matter of his cartoons had been blown out of proportion.

"We have a real problem here," Vilks told The Associated Press by telephone. "We can only hope that Muslims in Europe and in the Western world choose to distance themselves from this and support the idea of freedom of expression."

Ulf Johansson, editor in chief of Nerikes Allehanda, said he took the bounty "more seriously" than other threats he had received. "This is more explicit. It's not every day somebody puts a price on your head."

Johansson said he had contacted the police and that they had already started work on the threat.

Aside from a few scattered protests and condemnations by Muslim countries, the reaction to the cartoon has been muted, in contrast to last year's fiery protests that erupted in several Muslim countries after a Danish newspaper published 12 cartoons of Muhammad that were reprinted in a range of Western media.

Please splain what you are asking Hammad? The Muslim world as ruled by it's hieratic leaders kill anyone who descends against their leadership. Iraq does have a few good leaders not afraid of the ruling Islamic terror Govt. The fear of the Islamic terror groups is they will lose power over the people if FREEDOM takes hold. Until women can wear what they want and men say what they want in public Islam is a religion of slavery.

It is the Saudis that are the biggest danger in Iraq. The Saudis feel that the majority shia in Iraq is a direct threat to them. They feel that if stability occurs, then the shia of Iran and Iraq will then become the central power in the region, and engulf them. That is why the Saudi sunni keep sending their jihadists into Iraq to keep things stirred up. Don't they realize that the sunni under Sadaam had designs on Saudi land also. Stability under a stable government in Iraq is the best thing for the region under the watchful eyes of the free world. The irony is that the West needs the regions oil to survive. The USA supports the Saudi and Kuwait for oil, the Saudi sends terrorists into Iraq to kill our soldiers. It is both an economical and a religious war that is being conducted. And only the military might of the West will keep the whole region from blowing up. Many religious factors and hatreds would explode if the West pulled out. And the islamic religions (Plural) are the root cause of the problems.

The so called resistence is terrorism. The resistence in Iraq is against a stable secular moslem government. The resistence in Afghanastan is against a stable secular moslem government. The resistence in Palestine is against a stable secular moslem government. You sir, are a supporter of jihad and for islamic law in all these countries and the world. You are but a charlatan, abeit a dangerous one, and your delusional if you think that islam will conquer the free world who values freedoms of thought, speech, movement, religion, and expression who will defend these freedoms with their life.

If a person will have a death threat levied on them by 'offending' someone else, then we are all in danger.

Some of us, just by being a citizen of a particular nation or religion or skin tone offend others even if we don't say a word.

This all means conflict is guaranteed. So what will the Western Nations that value whatever freedoms we have do now to protect those... and to lessen our suffering from our enemies later?

Well said!

That religion of peace and love has put out another two contracts on a cartoonist and a newspaper editor. My definitions of love and peace are quite different. Islam is far more afraid of words and ideas than they are of bombs and bullets. We should be dropping books on them....unfortunately most of them are illiterate and the Imam's probably wouldn't read them out loud. How about, "How to win friends and influence people"?

You're right, Hammad is a charlatan. He never answers anything directly, just more accusations in some tortured kind of circular logic.

In the west you will go to prison for a long stretch just for putting a price on someone's head, whether anyone actually kills the intended or not. If that were the only reason to be worried about Islam it would be enough.
