I'm still trying to dig my way through all the contradictory explanations about who is offended and why. According to 23-year old Asmaa Abdol-Hamid, who is designated "spokesperson for the organisations in 'the case'", it wasn't the drawings as such, but rather the context. (Danish text, my translation): "We probably wouldn't have been so offended if the drawings had been published in another context, explains Asmaa Abdol-Hamid, who expects the court to agree with her".

Time and time again the media have told us that Islam forbids to portray Muhammed - end-of-discussion. But according to Abdol-Hamid the drawings are not offending in themselves - it's the context.

Sometimes a Dane can dream with Wulff and Morgenthaler:

Wulff and Morgenthaler: If people in the Middle East were more like Scandinavians.
