More about the Danish cartoons

The situation is getting bigger and bigger.

Not only the Arab League has expressed his dissatisfaction with the Danish Government. An influential Islamic organisation, the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), has called upon its 51 member states to boycott Denmark unless the Danish government “presents an official apology for the drawings that have offended the world’s Muslims.”

Meanwhile in Sweden a jeans manufacturer, Bjorn Atldax, has designed a jeans brand with an anti-Christian logo: a skull with a cross turned upside down on its forehead. Will the UN’s Louise Ardour, the EU’s Franco Frattini and the Council of Europe respond the same manner to this attack to another religion?

And A recent storm over cartoons published in a leading Danish newspaper which some Muslims saw as blasphemous has prompted a Cairo-based Muslim interfaith organisation to stage a one-day conference in Denmark in March to address "the ignorant and inflammatory portrayal of Islam in the media".
