Mohammad Cartoons on YouTube

(Copenhagen, Denmark) Holy moly! It appears that the world may see another flare-up of Muslim indignation. Danish television has aired video of images mocking Mohammad which were drawn by members of the anti-immigrant Danish People's Party (DPP) during summer camp.

The foreign ministry said in a statement on Monday that footage of the cartoons was first posted on the video-sharing web site YouTube, which is not hosted in Denmark.

"Danish television channels TV-2 and DR later aired extracts," it said. "The intention of airing the extracts was not to provoke Muslims but to illustrate the matter in an interview on DR with the chairman of the DPP Youth Organization, who distanced himself (from) the video clips."

The ministry issued a strong advisory to Danes against travel to the Gaza Strip and cautioned against travel to Israel and the West Bank, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey.

"A militant group in Gaza has made threats against Danes in the Palestinian areas in connection with the (cartoon) matter on October 9," the advisory said. "We urge Danes to use caution as the matter could lead to negative reactions."
Yeah, that's what it says. There could be some "negative reactions" from the followers of the religion of peace. Excuse me! It seems that all their reactions are negative ... uh, that is, except when infidels are murdered. Then, they rejoice.
