Cartoon murder plot

Dane, Tunisians arrested in cartoonist murder plot – 13 Feb 2008 – NZ Herald: World / International News

A Danish citizen of Moroccan descent and two Tunisians were arrested in Denmark on Tuesday over a plot to murder one of 12 cartoonists whose drawings of the Prophet Mohammad caused worldwide uproar in 2006.

According to Jyllands-Posten, the newspaper that originally published the cartoons in September 2005, the suspects are accused of planning to kill 73-year-old Kurt Westergaard.
He drew the cartoon that caused the most controversy, depicting the founder of Islam with a bomb in his turban.

The paper reproduced that drawing on its website on Tuesday.

I republish that cartoon in solidarity with Kurt Westergaard.

For the attempted murderers, Pigs Be Upon Them?
