Have you wondered why the conflict is escalating now - when the drawings are four months old and all other newspapers have been used to wrap fish long ago?

If you have been reading this Blog you'll know why: The imams are talking with two tongues - first they speak of appeasement at home in Denmark, and then they travel to the Middle East and spread their lies and hatred. Now it's official - all of Denmark has seen the clips in television. The video is here - if the deep link doesn't work you can go to this page, select time 21:00, date "fre 04 feb" and then "Imamers loyalitet under lup".

Even the Prime Minister dares to say it publicly (JyllandsPosten):

PM Anders Fogh Rasmussen lashed out at extremist Muslim leaders in Denmark on Thursday for speaking with two tongues in the on-going row between the country and the Muslim world.
So many practising Muslims is started to follow the instruction of the boycott. The question will arrive: Is this within our interest? No, never.
If Muslim countries decide to boycott, and if Muslims feel that it is their obligation to defend the prophet, then that is something we can be happy about

[. . .]

Rasmussen was referring specifically to an incident in which controversial imam Abu Laban said to television station al-Jazeera that he was happy about the Muslim boycott. Later in the day, Laban said to Danish television station TV2 that he would urge Muslims to stop the boycott immediately.

'If Muslim countries decide to boycott, and if Muslims feel that it is their obligation to defend the prophet, then that is something we can be happy about,' Laban said to al-Jazeera.

Other leading imams have also been accused of misleading Muslims outside of Denmark about the situation.

Earlier this week, imam Abu Bashir appeared on BBC World showing a caricature of Mohammed with a pig's snout and ears to representatives of the Arabic League. Bashir falsely claimed that the caricature was one of the 12 Jyllands-Posten drawings.


Did you know that JyllandsPosten has an English section? Why not look at what they have to say about the situation:
