Danish counter-attacks

The islamic boycot of Danish goods, and the cyber attacks on Danish media over the weekend are not eliciting a response from the general population. On one hand, there is a cyber-counterattack brewing (Jyllands-Posten):

Chain-mail suggests attack on arab media

A Danish chain-mail that is circulating by email urges people to take part in a web-based attack on arab media. This happens in reaction to the hacker-attack on Danish papers´ websites over the weekend.

The affair about the Mohammed-drawings of the paper Jyllands-Posten has now set off a hacker-war on the internet. Over the weekend several Danish papers´ web-versions, among them Jyllands-Posten, were attacked by hackers, and speculation has been rife, that the drawings might be the reason for the attack. Now a Danish chain-mail spreading via email urges to take part in a counter-attack on arab media.

The email starts out with the headline "Denmark under attack by moslem hackers" and contains an attached program, that starts a so-called denial-of-service attack on five arab media, among them Al-Jazeera, Arab News og Gulf News.

In the letter the recipient is urged to let the program run on his computer to bombard the arab media with data and thus block their homepages.

The Danish security firm CSIS explains that they received the first notifications about the mail sunday evening.

"If the user sends the email on - and accepts that the script is being run, then his computer is taking part in a targetted denial-of-service attack on several media in the arab world. An action, that can contribute enormously to the already heated situation," says Peter Kruse, virus analyst at CSIS.

He suggests that people erase the email right away, and says that his company has notified the Danish police, that currently is investigating the case.

At the same time, oppinion pages are full of demands for a boycot of the gas station chain Q8 (its Kuwaiti-owned), and there is a general consumer boycott of moslem businesses being urged by text messages. Two versions are known to me, and they read as follows:

This text message urges everybody to boycot the moslem-owned pizzarias and kiosks in Denmark. It is the same thing they do to our Danish companies, all because of a measely drawing in a paper. Send this text message to everybody you know.

and

Moslems are boycotting Danish goods because of satirical drawings. Soon Donald Duck will have to wear pants and Daisy a veil. Let us christians boycot moslem vegetable sellers, pizza-bakers and taxi-chauffeurs in Denmark. Pass this text message on if you agree.

The sender of the latter message is an atheist.

Screen caps soon.

Good for the Danes! Boycott muslim businesses--give them a taste of their own medicine.

Why is oil-rich Norway apologizing for running the cartoons? AND recognizing Hamas as a legitimate government when they have no intentions of changing their behavior toward Israel?

Hey Heather

You asked me a couple days ago whether I could translate something for you. Problem is, the link you asked about is offline.

Any other link with the stuff you need?

I picked you up at Jihad Watch.

We're concerned around the world about Denmark's response to the attacks on free speech and citizens' private rights. This is not entirely a Danish or Norwegian concern, given that we are interconnected by culture, commerce, and history, united by a number of shared values, one of which is our commitment to free speech and freedom of the press. Oslo, Norway is not Berkely, California, but there is a commonality of freedom if not to the same degree. The European ground of freedom is connected to the ground of the rest of the world. "No nation is an island entire of itself; every nation is a part of the continent," to paraphrase Donne.

That's my expression of solidarity. Further, I post cartoons of Mohammed. I urge you and your readers to download them, to spread them arcoss the world till there is no Denmark or Norway to focus on but only the free world for Muslims to rage at.

We have some variety of graphics available, one of my favorites from Derek in Manhattan. Thomas the Wraith has a lovely piece of work depicting Mohammed's feminine side. We'll keep posting and spreading graphics till the Islamic world bursts or busts. Please feel free to help yourselves.

It would be great to boycott Mahometan products, but when was the last time you saw one?

Do any of you have a single item in your homes that was made anywhere from Morocco to Malaysia?

Cato the Elder,

I used to buy many items from a company called Novica. I thought it was a great idea. Help support poor indigenous artists with a fairly priced piece of art and get something beautiful in return. This was prior to their sponsorship by National Geographic.

I bought several items--a beautiful carving of a woman and her child from an artisan in Sudan. A mask from the talented artists on the Indonesian island of Lombok, and other pieces of art from muslim and other countries.

There are many places to buy items like this such as Pier One Imports, World Market, and even Target. I still have some Moroccan items purchased while in high school, two plus decades ago. I think I got these from a Lillian Vernon catalog.

I stopped buying things from Muslim countries after 9/11. Sad to say, I had no idea that my purchases could potentially be used to fund terrorism.

If you really want to boycott Muslim products/enterprise, do a Google search to find all the Saudi or other (majority owned) "American" companies.

Here's one small example you may already be familiar with:

I posted a list with Danish items that should be easy to find in the U.S., (the HNN list plus some others) as well as several online sources for Danish products: Support Free Speech-- BUY DANISH!
It is important that we start to buy some of these things ASAP, and let others know by posting lists (specific things people can buy) on blogs, and sending out by email.

i believe it's wrong to boycott islamic products or shops.
first of all, because those you boycott has as little to do with this, as you and i. May i remind you that this is not a world war.
second, because if you boycott an islamic pizzaria or shop in denmark, you boycott danish products.

it's just not the way to resolve this.

YES its yet another lost for freedome of speach and its due to them ONCE AGAIN they manage to mess up the world! Im a dane and i read about the surport the Americans are given to Danish mergenside and from the button of our hearts Thank you so unbeliveable much. We have been denied freedom of speach from people there is 10000KM away from us and not only denied they also have the nerves to burn the danish flag! Its cost alotta danish workers thier jobs due to the cutting the Companies have had to make.

I cant belive thies uncivilized people are winning ONCE AGAIN! But this aint the end of it, we'll marsh to city hall and burn the koran. For to long we have been trying to creat a dialog with thies people but they dont understand the only thing they'll understand is action and for the time beeing people WE GOTTA FIGHT BACK! How can thies muslims manage to turn the world up side down time after time, im not a racist AT ALL but in denmark we are paying 70% tax (Yes its true look it up) we are 6millions in denmark wich 1million is muslim and 80% without jobs! We shelter them We pay them for sitting in thier flat watching Tv whiel we work our asses off and YET they complain and even burn the danish flag (dannebro) how ungratefull is it possible to be, ill say about that much! To the Americans who are surporting us i and every dane thank you from the button of our hearts its REALLY appricated Thanks (words cant explain how gratefull we are) the only things about this that sadnensse me is that US is the only 1 there have the curage to act, even in denmark some people are just saying: "That'll be like sinking to thier level" And yes it would but obviously thats the only thing they can understand. This aint hate against every indivudel muslim but something most be done. And our goverment and even the freaking newspaper is to affraid to do anything. The news paper EVEN apoligezed and we are so ashamed of that, but u most understand that we are a very small country and if 1billion people aint buying our mergendise we're loosing ALOTTA money VERY fast. Its not only the campagin against danish products, we are also reciving threads and many muslims websites are telling the people to hurt and kill danes aswell and norwiegans, its outta my thinking range that due to a drawing (that a newspaper made, not the danish people) they have to hurt us, its seems to fare away from the world we live in to day, that i can only imagen they still live in the 1700. To summen up: Due to a drawing the muslims are be curaged to kill danes and mess up our economi!

I excuss for my poor spellings and hope u understand the words!

ONCE again we thank you so very very much, God bless America !

Are Denmark alone in the trenches, in the defence of freedom of speach. Should islamic/religious feelings, decide what we print in the newspapers or show i the news on tv.
Who what to defend our freedom against religious fanatics.

Where is the western world

As a Dane im very concerned. We clearly stand totally alone on this matter, at least in any political way. No European contry has surported us, and its clear to everyone here we stand totally alone in the confrontations from islam. We have even hoped for the U.S to stand up as a last resort for help, but no. Not a single helping and supporting words from the U.S goverment. We are a small contry with apopulation thats twice as small as the population of New York, so we cant do anythi other than we allready do. But my question is where is the rest of the World? We obviously stand alone is this confrontation, and its very sad to see the U.S not beein a true allied. I can also state that in Danish press no one have said they are sorry about the drawings, and the Danish goverment has not been backing down on the right to free speech.

So thanks to the free world

Many US citizens DO support Denmark and the Danish people. We are buying products from Denmark to show our support.

I saw this article today, it is good news, Denmark is not alone:

Solid Attacks on more than 500 web and data servers of Isreal & Denmark on 15 February 2006, victims of this attack were servers related to jews basically so it is assumed to be a Jihadi attack. Detailed information could not be retreived because none of the official sources declared it, but persons who were working in the target organization let this out.
