Ahmad Akkari has issued bomb threats. He was also one of those responsible for circulating three incendiary and fake cartoons of Muhammad in the Islamic world along with the ones that actually ran in the Danish paper Jyllands Posten, in order to bring cartoon rage to a fever pitch. He did this, he said, to “give an insight in how hateful the atmosphere in Denmark is towards Muslims.”
So now the hateful, Islamophobic Danes have rescued him from Lebanon.
“Danes, Swedes lead evacuation race,” from AP, with thanks to all who sent this in:
The Danes got a test run in crisis management earlier this year when newspaper cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad triggered violent protests against Danish embassies in Muslim countries.
One of the Danish Muslims who spearheaded the rallies against the prophet drawings, Lebanese-born Ahmad Akkari, was among those evacuated from Beirut on Thursday.
“My impression is that the transportation has been safe and that no one has been suffering,” Akkari told Denmark’s TV2 channel as he boarded a Greek ferry chartered by Denmark.
