Did You Know...

I made it home. Tons of stuff to catch up on, but I had to post a few Cartoon Jihad items before I crash. Several Danish readers point to this news article detailing a possible threat against the child of one of the Mohammed Cartoonists.

Danish blog Agora has more:

A group of Moslem males have tried to get at the daughter of one of the 12 cartoonists who drew the cartoons of Muhammed at her school. The political spokesman of the Liberals, Jens Rohde, revealed this during an interview with TV-Avisen while explaining his and the Prime Minister’s attack on the business community in Denmark, charging that they have put profits over Freedom of Speech.

Not at school

Rohde says that the 12 cartoonists have had their lives overturned and are now living in hiding, after receiving several death threats.

“And a daughter of one of cartoonist was sought out by 12 Moslem males – they were looking to get to her. Fortunately she wasn’t at school,” Jens Rohde said.

Meting with Cartoonists

Later Thursday night, Jens Rohde told Ritzaus Bureau that he was told of this incident during a meeting with the cartoonists.

The Police Intelligence Service did not wish to comment on this.

Officials still don’t think it’s safe for the cartoonists to live in the open in Denmark.

Meanwhile, Jim Hoft reports that the staff of a Welsh student newspaper, the first in the UK to print the Mohammed Cartoons, is being let go.
