Yes, the religious muslims now want to kill him. But not for the right reasons. They want to kill him for apparently turning away from jihad and islam’s more violent precepts and directives while what they should want him punished for, is the massive fraud and deception he pulled even on them to entice muslims to riot against Danish and Western targets. Things including but not limited to, using a photograph from a French magazine showing a person in a hog calling contest with his hands behind his ears which this imam claimed was mocking the Islamic call to prayer, and even drawing a few really awful toons of his own and claimed they were part of the Danish newspaper’s collection. But of course this kind of deception to encourage violence seems to be welcomed in Islam so it is failing to continue that which motivates the actions in the second video below.
Meanwhile, here is his very recent speech to the International Free Press Society delivered in Denmark just a few days ago. I look forward to people’s impressions of him in the comments.
Here is an excellent and thorough history of the cartoon issue. (Thanks C.B. Sashenka)
The video below has to have been ‘shot’ post Aug 22 2013 as that is when the photo was taken of the Danish imam holding the Mo-toon cup with Kurt Westergaard
