Thousands demonstrate in Oslo to protest prophet cartoon

Posted on February 12, 2010

In 1997, an Israeli woman named Tatiana Soskin drew this caricature of Mohammed as a pig authoring the Koran and tried to display it in public in the city of Hebron. She was arrested, tried and sentenced to jail.


Free Speech Under Assault… 13 years later

About 3,000 people protested in Oslo on Friday over the printing of a caricature of the Prophet Mohammad as a pig by a Norwegian newspaper.

Demonstrators held up signs reading “We are Muslims, not terrorists” and “Stop denigrating Muslims.

The Dagbladet tabloid printed on Feb. 3 a cartoon drawing of Prophet Mohammed portrayed as a pig, his feet on the Koran.

The drawing was to illustrate an article about the Facebook page of the Norwegian police security service (PST) that contains a link to the cartoon, judged offensive by many Muslims.

The link was posted on the Facebook page by a user but removed, along with other comments deemed offensive, as soon as the police service became aware of it.

Norwegian media reported that Dagbladet had been manipulated by a man named Arfan Bhatti, whom police say is known to have shot at an Oslo synagogue in 2006.

Bhatti allegedly informed Dagbladet of the link on PST’s Facebook page and then called for a protest when the newspaper ran the story with the illustration in question.

    This is not free speech.

    This is yelling “Fire” in a crowded theater. It an attempt to incite a riot, in the case of the Israeli woman, and jail is where she belongs.

    The paper issued an apology today.

    When will you apologize for your ignorant hateful books and postings?

    The old B.S. warmed over for instant serving to … we know who. Muslims have been encouraged to blackmail the Civilized Nations with their oil reserves. Once the West develops, with the help of Israeli technicians and scientists energy independent of or complementary to oil – Islam will simply disappear. And the prophet will be just a lost illusion that most camel riders will hardly remember.

    Was the prophet really a pig? No, of course not. He was merely an illiterate Arab with funny sexual tastes, which held women in “very high regard” but preferred them as slaves – up to four to a man. His immoral ideas are certainly not those of a saint but rather of a man possessed that has no control over his actions.

  5. The Cult that is Islam, (Not a Religion, but a godless cult, built on hatred, bent on lowering the rest of the world to their sorry status.), has offered nothing of value to the world, nothing at all. If it weren’t for the liberals of the west, their oil would be worthless. The time has come for oil rich nations, i.e. USA/Canada/Mexico and TEXAS, to drill their own, share it with like minded sorts and let the middle east implode on itself.
    The great Golda Meir said: “There will not be peace until THEY love their children more than they hate us.” A truly inspired statement.
