MUSLIM TAXI DRIVERS STRIKE IN OSLO IN PROTEST OF NORWEGIAN PAPER DAGBLADET PUBLISHING PICTURE OF MOHAMED…….
From the always vigilant Tundra Tabloids:
A thousand taxi drivers of Muslim background interrupted their work late Friday, early Saturday moring in protest of the Oslo-Prophet Muhammad cartoons.
The Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet, released on Wednesday one of the illustrations on its front page.
Spontaneous demonstration was launched on Friday evening, and urged the busy men behind the wheel to park their cars during the period of two and four o’clock. According to police, the protest went peacefully.
Dagbladet used the drawings to illustrate a story, according to which the security police PST’s website has a link to the infamous cartoon images that have given rise to such bad blood. In the drivers’ view, the publication of the picture, was once again unnecessary.
– We wanted to show our opposition to it that makes a mockery of our values, “said the driver Munir Rashad. (Obviously, you don’t care for ours, why should we care for yours? Get the hell out of Dodge, you M*#$ble B$ta&f!/ed)
A large number of Oslo taxi drivers already have been charged with tax evasion and welfare fraud. Now Oslo police suspect around 40 drivers and even more taxi owners of having close contact with Pakistani gangs, and operating as couriers of arms and drugs.
