I’ll hold the sign, you watch for “Christions.”
Motoons Rage, stoked by the Muslim Brotherhood, in Modern, Moderate Jordan. “Jordanians burn Danish flags to protest cartoon,” from Agence France-Presse:
AMMAN – Jordanian demonstrators on Monday torched Danish flags outside the Copenhagen embassy to protest the reprinting of a controversial cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) in Denmark’s newspapers.
Carrying national flags and banners of the Islamic Action Front (IAF), the country”s main political party, around 300 protesters demanded the expulsion of Denmark’s ambassador as well as a boycott of Danish products.
“˜There should be no Danish embassy on Jordanian territory,” they shouted during a one-hour sit-in, calling on Muslim and Arab leaders to “˜defend Islam and revenge for blaspheming the Prophet.”
“˜We came today to send a clear message to the entire world that we reject the repeated targeting of our prophet and religion,” IAF Secretary General Zaki Bani Rsheid told AFP.
Rheil Ghraibeh, a spokesman for Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood, demanded an apology from Denmark.
“˜Holocaust denial is targeted by laws in Europe. Why can’t we have laws that protect all religions and prophets?” he asked.
One question for Ghraibeh: How exactly do cartoons harm religions and long-deceased prophets?
