The imam Ahmed Akkari, not content with stirring up international cartoon rage, has now issued death threats against a Muslim politician in Denmark whom he does not deem sufficiently Islamic. From Reuters, with thanks to all who sent this in:
COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Danish police will launch an investigation into allegations that an imam at the centre of the Prophet Mohammad cartoon row issued death threats against a moderate Muslim politician, a spokesman said on Thursday.
At least 50 people have been killed in protests in Asia, Africa and the Middle East after Danish paper Jyllands-Posten published 12 cartoons about the Prophet last year.
A French TV documentary crew secretly filmed Imam Ahmed Akkari threatening to have Naser Khader — a founder of Denmark’s Democratic Muslims network, which opposes violent protests over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad — bombed.
No doubt they filmed him out of context.
