We shall never forget — the cartoons!
Likewise, we should never forget the Muslim backlash to freedom of speech — including mass riots, burned buildings and cars, and dead Christians. SeeÂ hereÂ for a long list of Muslim “reactions” to the “cartoon controversy,” arranged by country. “Muslims to appeal cartoon case,” fromÂ News 24Â with thanks to DW
Sheik yer’mami sez: “We shall never forget!”
Hateful parasite: Abu Laban
* Â No, we shall never forget Â that awful, disgusting Abu Laban,Â chief-instigator behind the cartoon riots, how he was whining and whingeing on CNN, that “we love our prophet more than we love our own children”, that “this kind of democracy is no good for us” and the threatening “we Muslims have been very, very patient”- but try to find these clips on youtube now and you will find you have very little luck.
With our own news networks and their stooges being bought with petro-dollars we are digging our own graves. That’s why Hugh Fitzgerald sez: “Reprint!
* Â Every time Muslims raise this matter, simply reprint the cartoons again. Every time a lawsuit is filed, every time a threat is made, directly or indirectly, reprint the cartoons again. In Denmark, and all over. Do it so often, in a show of solidarity for the principle of free speech, for the principle, that is, that not only the principle but also the actual exercise, of free speech, is to be defended.
Repeat ad libitum.

Copenhagen – Seven Danish Muslim associations were planning to appeal to Denmark’s highest court over the publication of 12 cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad that sparked violent protests in 2006, reports said on Thursday.
A spokesperson for the Islamic Society told Danish media that a lawyer was working on the appeal to the Supreme Court.
Earlier, a Danish district court and an appeal court had turned down cases filed against the former managing editor and cultural editor of the Jyllands-Posten newspaper, which published the cartoons in September 2005.
The Muslim associations maintain that Muslims were slandered when the prophet was depicted as a terrorist and war-monger, but both Danish courts ruled that the publication was not slander.
Islamic Society spokesperson Bilal Assaad said the groups were prepared to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights, should the Supreme Court not support their case, news agency Ritzau said.
In February, Danish security police said theyÂ averted a plotÂ to murder newspaper cartoonist Kurt Westergaard, who made one of the 12 cartoons, depicting the Prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban.
Leading Danish newspapers reprinted the cartoons after the plot against Westergaard was disclosed, sparking new protests.
