So far we have looked at the Danish imams, but of course there's much more to the picture than this. There's no way the twelve harmless drawings could cause so much trouble - even if you add the false Mohammed drawings - unless other organizations and governments had been looking for an opportunity to distract attention from their own problems - and had found themselves an easy victim:

Article in Kristeligt Dagblad (my translation)

"The explosive development in the Mohammed-case is solely because Denmark is a convenient enemy and an easy victim".

This is the opinion of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Ekrima Sabri, who in an interview with Kristeligt Dagblad emphasizes that generally it takes a lot to provoke an attack on an embassy. Not even the American soldiers' flushing Korans on the toilets of the military bases was enough to make Muslims burn down embassies. The explanation of the powerful protests must therefore be found in the fact that Denmark is not USA, says the Grand Mufti.

– Some leaders of the Muslim countries are afraid of the USA, says Grand Mufti Ekrima Sabri.

– Not the population, but in certain cases the governments in Saudi-Arabia or Egypt will curb demonstrations in order not to fall out with the USA, says Grand Mufti .

However this is not the way the Arabian countries think about Denmark, says Ekrima Sabri.

– Denmark is an easy victim. A small country which hasn't any crucial importance for the Arabian countries. Therefore nobody worries if the protests continue, says the Grand Mufti.
