* But not only that: He proposed that a “memorial to all victims of Islamic terror” be set up, financed by sales of the toilet paper — an offer that prosecutors say he also posted on the Internet.

BERLIN (AP) â€” A German businessman who printed the name of the Quran on toilet paper and offered the rolls for sale to mosques and media will face trial for disturbing the peace.
The man, identified only as Manfred van H., is scheduled to go on trial Feb. 23 at a court in Luedinghausen in western Germany, Jochen Dyhr, a spokesman for judicial authorities in nearby Muenster, said Thursday.
The businessman last summer printed sheets of toilet paper with the sentence “Koran, the Holy Qur’aen” and sent them to about 15 mosques, television stations and magazines.
In an accompanying letter, authorities say, he asserted that Islam’s holy book is a “cookbook for terrorists” that calls for acts of violence.
He proposed that a “memorial to all victims of Islamic terror” be set up, financed by sales of the toilet paper –– an offer that prosecutors say he also posted on the Internet.
The businessman’s offer led to criminal complaints and telephone death threats against him.
Prosecutors argue that the man’s actions overstepped the legally guaranteed freedom to criticize other religions. They say he has cited his right to freedom of opinion and artistic expression, and said his aim was to provoke rather than actually sell the toilet paper.
* Manfred H. is a good guy. He deserves our support. The world has gone mad.
Postcard from Holland
* The result of the Muhammadan invasion
* A ‘quiet’ New Year:Â
* The media has tried hard to keep this quiet, and if it weren’t for the bloggers they might just succeed in keeping the truth from us: but thanks to Gates of Vienna, Winds of Jihad, Klein Vezet and a few other websites you can keep an eye on the result of Muhammadan infiltration.
* The damage is estimated by insurance companies to be around â‚¬11 million. â‚¬4 million of that figure is for torched cars alone.
* In the city of Utrecht 30 cars were torched. The police reported lacking manpower to handle the situation(s).
* The fire department of The Hague reports 800 fires.
* There were 95 arrests in The Hague, 85 in Rotterdam and 44 in Utrecht for vandalism
* The police station in Slotervaart (where a muslim earned himself a 72 yr old virgin recently by attacking a police station and stabbing 2 police officers) was besieged by muslims, damaged and tree police cars vandalized. No arrests were made. The riot police were present, but didn’t act.
* 109 cars were burned in The Hague.
* 22 schools were burned, some burned out, most with severe damage. The previous year ‘only’ seven schools were burned…
* In North Holland province two police departments made 47 arrests for disturbing the peace and rioting. Also there was one arrest for a stabbing incident.
– – – – – – – – –
* In Gelderland province 30 arrests for the same.
* In Amersfoort six cars were torched.
* Police in Barneveld didn’t act upon rioting youths, “so as not to aggravate the situation.” (They probably learned that from Amsterdam, where the police rarely act, for the same reason.)
In many places the police were hindered by people throwing stones to prevent the fire brigades and ambulances from doing their work.
Now do a quick calculation. Estimate the average value of a car at â‚¬10,000. Since the damage amount is â‚¬4 million, at least 400 cars must have been burned.
