...and suddenly the moslems had even more to be offended at
After the past months of perpetual cries of "Im offended" from moslem clerics and spokespersons, they suddenly got a whole new set of Danish carricatures to be offended by (from Politiken, my translation):
It is not just the Mohammed-drawings by Jyllands-Posten, that the Islamic Belief Society is enraged by.
10 satirical pictures published in Weekendavisen in November last year are even worse, says spokesman Kasem Ahmad from the Islamic Belief Society.
"Weekendavisen has published pictures even worse than Jyllands-Posten did. This is a campaign to mock moslems in Denmark", he says. ..
The pictures were published on a satirical last page in Weekendavisen, and show amongst others a chair with the text "This is the profet", an abstract picture with the text "Howling prophet at lake in wood" and a picture of the Mona Lisa with a beard.
It is a drawing of a bearded lady with the text: "Well, are YOU able to prove that the prophet wasnt a woman?", that Kasem Ahmad finds blasphemic. ..
During a tour of the Middle East, the Islamic Belief Society has shown copies of both papers´pictures to officials and journalists.
"We expect prime minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen to distance himself from the drawings", says Kasem Ahmad.
Im trying to find copies of the pictures in Weekendavisen. If I do, Ill post them here.
