Muslim terrorist hunt Danish cartoonists

via Washington Correspondent for HK published on May 5, 2006

A dozen young Pakistani and Afghan Muslim terrorists have departed Afghanistan, bound first for Iran and then Europe, where their mission will be to hunt down the Danish cartoonists responsible for drawing anti-Muhammad sketches, according to a report in G2 Bulletin, an Inter Agency Intelligence newsletter.

The report was passed on by Hamid Mir, the Pakistani journalist who has interviewed Al-Qaida leaders Osma Bib Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri and who just visited the no-man’s land along the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. While there, he was told by Taliban sources in South Waziristan that 12 young Muslims-6 Afghans and 6 Pakistanis-are on their way to Europe to kill the Danish cartoonists. Iran has provided them special training on assassination and supplied them Iranian passports. All 12 young Muslim terrorists have recorded video messages that will be aired publicly if they hit their targets.

Earlier this year, 12 cartoons depicting Muhammad were published in Denmark’s Jyllands-Posten newspaper. The paper said it wanted to make a point about media self-censoring criticisms of Islamic terrorism.

Meanwhile, radical Muslims are planning world wide protest against an artwork, which is at the U.S. Supreme Court building. The stone sculpture of Muhammad is meant to signify Muhammad’s contribution in establishing Islamic law. The artwork was designed by sculptor Adolph Weinman for the U.S. Supreme Court building, which opened in the 1930’s. While Muslims engaged in violent protests worldwide over caricatures of Muhammad have insisted any image of their prophet is considered blasphemous. The artwork in the U.S. supremecourt portrays the Islamic leader Muhammad wielding a sword.
