They traveled through the Middle East with three additional cartoons that were more inciteful than the ones that actually appeared in the newspaper, trying to stir up murderous hatred against Denmark — not that there’s anything wrong with that.
“Imams cleared in Mohammed case,” from the Copenhagen Post, with thanks to Fjordman:
Imams who travelled to the Middle East and allegedly incited anger against Denmark over the Mohammed cartoons will not face criminal charges.
The State Prosecutor’s office has been unable to find evidence that imams from Denmark broke any laws in their efforts to convince Muslims to protest against the publication of the Mohammed cartoons.
Despite over 100 allegations of violations of Denmark’s terror laws, the Ministry of Justice’s Office of Special International Crimes indicated the imams and others who travelled with them broke no laws when they visited Syria, Lebanon and Egypt in December 2005.
The decision to drop the charges clears the group of any responsibility for the burning of Danish embassies in those countries at the start of 2006.
