A PROPHET Mohammed look-alike contest was cancelled in Frankfurt after city officials declined to hold the event during a book fair at which Turkey is guest of honour.

“The city of Frankfurt became afraid, and backed out of its pledge to hold the competition on Saturday at the Museum of Caricature,” satirical magazine Titanic said on its Internet site. 

“We will do everything we can to find another site, but it will be hard in the middle of the book fair,” the world’s biggest which fills hotels and meeting rooms here, the magaine’s editors said. 

City officials said the site initially chosen appeared to be too small to hold the number of people that might show up, given the buzz being generated. 

“We are relieved, because there will be no protests this way,” theFrankfurter Rundschau daily quoted police spokesman Juergen Linker as saying.

Frankfurt prosecutor Doris Joeller-Scheu said: “We are pleased because there would surely have been problems without this cancellation.” 

In 2005, publication in a Danish newspaper of cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed, deemed blasphemous in the Islamic world, sparked outrage in many countries.

  1. Someday the remaining infidels of Germany will sneak around and look at the cartoons of Mo with great fear of the religious police who constantly harass them as dhimmis. They will curse their ancestors for not defying Islam but instead appeasing and cowering in fear.
