Islamofascists continue to incite against Denmark and other parts of Europe
A leading Islamic cleric called for an "international day of anger" today over publication of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed, and a Danish activist predicted that deadly violence could break out in Europe "at any minute".Livingstone, of course, has since clearly proven himself a terrorist sympathiser, and bad for England's safety.
As more European newspapers reprinted the cartoons, what started off as a row between Denmark's press and its Muslim population grew into a full-blown "clash of civilisations".
Anger boiled over in the Gaza Strip, where gunmen from Islamic Jihad occupied the office of the European Union. Europeans began to leave the Palestinian territories after threats from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.
Jihad al-Momani, the editor of the Jordanian newspaper al-Shihan, was sacked for trying to publish three of the 12 caricatures. He said that he was aiming "to show his readers "the extent of the Danish offence".
A leading hard-line Muslim cleric, Sheikh Yussef al-Qaradawi, called for the day of anger to protest against the printing of the cartoons - first published in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in September - in other European papers.
"Let Friday be an international day of anger for God and his prophet," said the sheikh, who is the head of the International Association of Muslim Scholars. He is one of the Arab world's most popular television preachers and made a controversial visit to London in July 2004 as a guest of the mayor, Ken Livingstone.
The AP Wire reports that in Gaza, where a lot of the incitement has also taken place, that:
Early Friday, Palestinian militants threw a bomb at a French cultural center in Gaza City, and many Palestinians began boycotting European goods, especially those from Denmark.In the wake of much of this increasing violence and incitement, many European diplomats have urged their citizens to leave Gaza and Saudi Arabia ASAP.
Michelle also discovers that quite a lot of websites have opened up in support of Denmark. Buy Danish offers a list of products you can buy. And, if you'd like to support Jyllands Posten's position, here's a petition you can sign too.
