Protests Over Muhammad Cartoon Grow


"BEIRUT, Lebanon - The controversy over Danish caricatures of Prophet Muhammad escalated Monday as gunmen seized an EU office in Gaza and Muslims appealed for a trade boycott of Danish products. Denmark called for its citizens in the Middle East to exercise vigilance.

Denmark-based Arla Foods, which has been the target of a widespread boycott in the Middle East, reported that two of its employees in Saudi Arabia were beaten by angry customers. Aid groups, meanwhile, pulled workers out of Gaza, citing the threat of hostilities."

It's actually intresting to see how the E.U. deal with this issue.

We'll have to watch and see what happens next.

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's Foreign Ministry summoned the Danish ambassador on Tuesday to protest against satirical newspaper cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad that have sparked Muslim anger, state television said on Tuesday.

These Iranian mullahs get just a little bit more full of themselves everyday--just imagine if they had nukes! Ridiculing the 'prophet' will take on a whole new set of consequences to consider, not that we need any more.

The Religious Policeman had a great post on this the other day, I did not post it, because at the time I had not heard about it yet, or seen any pictures, I'll go look for it and post a link to the end of this.
