This is the winner of the Campaign for Free Expression Public Service Announcement Video Contest. I like it... I wonder if they had seen that Bob Dylan video from back in the day.
A quick review of past events. On September 30, 2005 a newspaper in Denmark published 12 cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. The uber-blasphemnous cartoon (as against the other blasphemous cartoons) had a bomb in the turban of the Prophet. I found this nifty video based on this cartoon and thought it was necessary to share it with you all.
After the publication of the original cartoons much of the Muslim world went... what's the word? Batsh*t crazy. Danish (hmmmmm danish) embassies around the world were under siege by protesters.
Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the Danish Prime Minister who has been burnt in effigy in dozens of cities across the world since the crisis began in late January, has called the furore Denmark's worst international relations incident since the Second World War.(click here for link)That's not the craziest thing about this story, however. Jihadis are still gunning for the newspaper (see article here). The most recent attempt was earlier this month.
