    نخست*وزير دانمارك بار ديگر اهانت به پيامبر اسلام (ص) را محكوم كرد


    نخست وزير دانمارك امروز نيز در تلاش براي كاهش خشم مسلمانان جهان انتشار تصاوير ويدئويي اهانت به پيامبر اسلام (ص) را محكوم كرد.



    به نقل از خبرگزاري رويترز،* "آندرس فاگ راسموسن" تلاش دارد كه از ايجاد بحران تازه براي اين كشور به دنبال پخش تصاوير ويديويي ضداسلامي از سوي يكي از سايت*هاي اينترنتي اين كشور و شبكه*هاي تلويزيوني دانمارك جلوگيري كند.
    اين شبكه*هاي تلويزيوني چندي پيش تصاويري از گروهي از جوانان ضدمهاجرت اين كشور موسوم به حزب خلق دانمارك (DDP) پخش كردند كه در آن به پيامبر اعظم (ص) اهانت شده بود.
    وي در عين حال با اشاره به تجمع شب*گذشته معترضين ايراني در مقابل سفارت دانمارك در تهران كه با پرتاب مواد آتش*زا همراه بود، حمله به سفارت اين كشور را محكوم كرد.
    راسموسن كه با خبرگزاري رويترز مصاحبه مي*كرد،* تاكيد كرد:* من قوياً* حمله به سفارت دانمارك در تهران را محكوم مي*كنم.
    وي افزود، ترديدي در محكوميت اقدام اعضاي حزب DDP وجود ندارد و وي اقدام آنها را تأئيد نمي*كند.
    نخست*وزير دانمارك تصريح كرد: من به روشني تاكيد كرده*ام كه رفتار نامناسب اين گروه به هيچ عنوان مؤيد ديدگاه مردم دانمارك در قبال اسلام نيست. به هر حال اين كه شاهد حمله به سفارت خود در تهران و تظاهرات خشونت*بار هستيم قابل قبول نيست.
    وي خاطر نشان كرد: ما گفته*ايم كه ايران متعهد به حفاظت از سفارت ما است.
    پيش از اين در دسامبر سال گذشته ميلادي نيز روزنامه "يولند پوستن" دانمارك تصاويري موهن عليه پيامبر اكرم (ص) چاپ كرده بود كه خشم جامعه اسلامي در سراسر جهان را به همراه داشت و اين كشور مجبور شد كه سفارت خود را در برخي از كشورهاي اسلامي براي مدتي تعطيل كند.

      دفتر تبليغات اسلامي حوزه علميه قم:

      كشورهاي مسلمان كالاهاي دانمارك را تحريم كنند


      دفتر تبليغات اسلامي حوزه علميه قم با بيان اين*كه غرب در واكنش به بيداري اسلامي كه هر روز بر تعداد پيروان اين آئين مقدس مي*افزايد به توهين به اسلام روي آورده است، تصريح كرد:كشورهاي مسلمان بايد براي ارائه پاسخي عملي به اين اقدامات كالاهاي دانمارك را تحريم كنند.



      به نقل از روابط عمومي دفتر تبليغات اسلامي حوزه علميه قم، اين نهاد در بيانيه*اي توهين تلويزيون دانمارك به ساحت اسلام و پيامبر اكرم(ص) را محكوم كرد.
      در اين بيانيه آمده است: خيزش اسلام معاصر و نهضت بازگشت به خويشتن مسلمانان، پيروزي شكوهمند حزب*الله لبنان و توفقات روز افزون ايران اسلامي، موجي در عالم در افكند كه هر روز بر دامنه آن افزوده مي*شود. اين روند مبارك كه در ضمن به غبارزدايي از چهره تابناك اسلام نيز انجاميده، هر روز به تعداد پيروان اين آئين مقدس مي*افزايد و ارباب كليسا كه از مهار آن عاجز آمده*اند راه چاره را در تنور فتنه دميدن و توهين به اسلام و سنبل*هاي آن ديده*اند.
      اين بيانيه با اشاره به چاپ كاريكاتورهاي موهن در شماري از روزنامه*هاي اروپايي، اظهارات دروغين پاپ شانزدهم عليه اسلام و رسول اعظم (ص)، اقدام تازه تلويزيون دانمارك، آورده است: اين اقدامات نشان مي*دهد بزرگان كليسا و دولتمردان اروپايي به ملعبه صهيونيست*ها تبديل شده*اند.
      دفتر تبليغات اسلامي حوزه علميه قم در اين بيانيه ضمن ابراز انزجار شديد از اين اقدام*هاي غير اخلاقي و دور از انصاف و فراخواندن مسلمانان به اتحاد و اعتراض و محكوميت اين توهين*ها، تاكيد كرده است: خورشيد اسلام به زودي پرتو فروزانش را بر سراسر گيتي خواهد گسترد و دست و پا زدن*هاي افراطيون مسيحي راه به جايي نخواهد برد.
      در پايان بيانيه با تاكيد بر اين*كه مسلمانان و سران كشورهاي اسلامي نبايد تنها به محكوميت زباني بسنده كنند بلكه لازم است حداقل تحريم جدي كالاهاي وارداتي دانمارك و اتحاديه اروپا را در دستور كار قرار دهند، از سران اين كشورها خواسته است با ديپلماسي فعال عرصه را بر توهين*كنندگان وپشتيبانان آنها تنگ نمايند.

        New Danish Muhammad cartoons draw criticism, spark protest

        Less than a year after cartoons of Islam's prophet Muhammad published in a Danish newspaper ignited worldwide protests against the Scandinavian nation, a new set of cartoons, this time featured in a video aired on Danish television and the Internet, has again sparked condemnations in the Muslim world.

        Reuters reports that dozens of Iranian protesters attacked the Danish embassy in Tehran Tuesday in response to the cartoons, which were aired during a news report on Danish television Friday.

        Reuters witnesses said protesters hurled stones and petrol bombs into the embassy compound. The crowd chanted "Down with Zionists" and "God praise the party of God".

        Riot police guarded the embassy and two fire trucks stood nearby. Firefighters extinguished a tire which was set alight next to the embassy compound wall, the witnesses said.

        Also on Tuesday, the Iranian parliament called upon Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to cut economic ties with Denmark over the cartoons, reports Agence France-Presse.

        "Since disrespecting the prophet of Islam is not tolerable under any conditions, we call for cutting economic relations with Denmark," said a petition addressed to the president and read out in a live radio broadcast from parliament.

        The letter - signed by 232 MPs in the 290 seat hardline-controlled house - also asked the president to "freeze political relations if Denmark continues such policies."

        The cartoons appeared in a video showing young members of the anti-immigrant Danish People's Party drawing carictures of Muhammad during a summer camp, reports The Independent of London.

        The film was made by a group called Defending Denmark which said it infiltrated the youth wing of the far-right party for 18 months "to document [its] extreme right-wing associations". It showed the junior members of the party, who appeared to have been drinking, holding a drawing contest during their summer camp.

        One woman presented a cartoon showing a camel with the head of Mohamed and beer cans for humps. A second drawing showed a bearded man wearing a turban next to a plus sign and a bomb, equalling a nuclear mushroom cloud.

        In the report above, AFP noted that the cartoons appeared on screen "fleetingly" during the broadcast by Denmark's TV2. The Associated Press reported that the videos were pulled from websites Monday.

        The controversy over the new cartoons echoes the protests earlier this year over a series of images of Muhammad that were published in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. Those cartoons led to demonstrations and violence across the Muslim world, and sparked a heated debate over the weight of religious sensitivity versus the freedom of the press. Jyllands-Posten said that the cartoons were not intended to be offensive, which does not appear to be true of the latest cartoons.

        The Independent reports that Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen denounced the actions of the Danish People's Party youth, saying, "Their tasteless behaviour in no way represents the way the Danish people or young Danish people view Muslims or Islam." The Independent notes that while Mr. Rasmussen's center-right ruling coalition does not include the Danish People's Party, it has relied on the group for legislative support. The Danish government also issued a statement to its citizens, urging caution by those traveling in the Middle East and Indonesia.

        Despite Rasmussen's statement, Denmark has still received criticism from Muslim quarters. AP reports that Indonesia has voiced complaints to both the Danish ambassador and Denmark's foreign minister, while Deutsche Presse-Agentur and the South African Press Association report that an Indonesian radio station is sponsoring a contest, meant to insult Denmark, for the best drawing of the Danish king standing with pigs.

        IslamOnline reports that the International Union of Muslim Scholars said the cartoons were part of a larger campaign by the West to distract Muslims from developing their countries.

        "One of the main goals of this ferocious campaign against Islam and its sanctities is to distract Muslims from achieving the Islamic civilizational project to rid the Muslim nation of its subordination to the West," the International Union for Muslim Scholars said in a statement, a copy of which was sent to IslamOnline.net. ...

        Expecting more anti-Islam insults, the Muslim scholars said the best way to respond is to "pay no heed at all to the ignorant."

        The BBC reports that Danish Muslim leaders "said they would not be provoked by the latest incident."

        The new controversy has stirred concerns among Danish companies of new boycotts by Muslim nations. AP reports that two Danish companies in Saudi Arabia have been asked to remove their products, but neither the Confederation of Danish Industries nor Danish dairy giant Arla Foods have seen significant overall impact from the latest cartoon protests. Arla Foods says that its sales in the Middle East still have not fully recovered from the cartoon-sparked boycott earlier this year.

          Danish Court Dismisses Prophet Cartoon Lawsuit

          The Danish Aarhus court announced that a lawsuit against a newspaper, which had published inappropriate cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in 2005, has been dismissed.

          Seven Muslim organizations based in Denmark filed the lawsuit against the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in March, complaining that they felt the cartoons were defamatory and injurious.

          The drawings were published solely to provoke and mock, not only the Prophet Muhammad, but also the Muslim population, the Muslim organizations said.

          The court stated that people might be offended by the cartoons but that was not enough to open a case against the newspaper, adding that there was no reason to assume that the cartoons were meant to 'belittle' Muslims.

          The controversial depiction of the Prophet Mohammed was first published in the conservative Danish daily Jyllands-Posten in 2005. Later, some papers in other EU countries reprinted the cartoons "in support of freedom of expression," stirring up widespread outcry in many Muslim countries.

          Thousands of people in Muslim countries held protests in front of Danish consulates and the embassies of other countries where the cartoons were reprinted. Hundreds of demonstrators set the Danish embassies in Damascus and Beirut on fire in the beginning of 2006.

          Both Turkish PM Erdogan and the Organization of Islamic Conference condemned the burning of the Danish and Norwegian embassies in Damascus.

            A Danish court has rejected a libel case brought by several Muslim groups against a paper that published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
            The court in Aarhus said there was not enough reason to believe the cartoons were meant to be insulting or harmful.

            The cartoons sparked violent protests around the world after Jyllands-Posten published them in 2005.

            An appeal against the verdict has been lodged, and the verdict was met with disappointment in Muslim countries.

            "It is not up to the court to decide if Muslims will have hard feelings or not," Ameer ul-Azeem, spokesman for Jamaat-e-Islami, told the Associated Press news agency.

            His group belongs to an Islamic alliance that organised mass protests across Pakistan earlier this year.

            In Syria, where a mob attacked and set fire to the Danish and Norwegian embassies in February, legislator Mohammed Habash said the ruling would "widen the gap between the Western and Islamic world".

            "What the newspaper did represents a true insult to millions of Muslims who do not follow Danish laws," Mr Habash, who heads the Islamic Studies Centre in Damascus, told AP.

            'Not offensive'

            The City Court in Aarhus said there was not enough reason to believe the cartoons were intended to be insulting or harmful to Muslims.

            The organisations brought the lawsuit in March after the Danish attorney-general's decision not to make criminal charges against the newspaper under racism and blasphemy legislation.

            Even if the text accompanying the pictures could be read as being derogatory and mocking, the cartoons are not offensive

            Aarhus court

            Since the racism and blasphemy laws cannot be used in a civil suit, the groups sued the editor-in-chief and cultural editor of the newspaper for libel, the BBC's Julian Isherwood reports from Copenhagen.

            They accused the paper of publishing text and cartoons which were "offensive and insulting" to Muhammad.

            The cartoons, they argued, "attacked the honour of believers because they portrayed the Prophet as war-like and criminal and made a clear link between Muhammad, war and terrorism".

            But a judge ruled on Thursday that the cartoons were "not offensive... even if the text accompanying the pictures could be read as being derogatory and mocking".

            "Of course it cannot be excluded that the drawings offended some Muslims," the ruling said.

            "But there is no sufficient reason to assume that the cartoons are or were intended to be insulting... or put forward ideas that could hurt the standing of Muslims in society."

            Muslim furore

            After Jyllands-Posten published the cartoons on 30 September 2005, a campaign of protest gradually gathered steam in the Muslim world, erupting into deadly riots in February of this year.

            Islamic tradition explicitly prohibits images of Muhammad and other major religious figures. At least one of the cartoons also portrayed Muhammad as a terrorist.

            Death threats were made against the artists. Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen appeared on Arabic TV to apologise for any offence caused.

            Jyllands-Posten has defended its publication of the cartoons on grounds of freedom of press, but it also accepted they had caused offence to many Muslims and apologised.

              4 دی - صدا و سيما، سايت هاي خبري متعلق به روزنامه ها و ساير رسانه هاي خبري اتريش با اشاره به اقدام يک گروه هنري دانمارکي عليه احمدي نژاد اعلام کردند، گروه هنري سورند از دانمارک با فريب دادن مسوولان روزنامه تهران تايمز به رييس جمهور ايران فحاشي کرده است.


              به نوشته مطبوعات اتريشي، اين گروه هنري در شماره روز پنج شنبه روزنامه انگليسي زبان تهران تايمز يک آگهي منتشر کرده است که در آن در کنار تصويري از محمود احمدي نژاد جملاتي مانند ما از تلاش ايران براي استفاده از انرژي هسته اي حمايت مي کنيم و از مبارزه احمدي نژاد با بوش پشتيباني مي کنيم به چشم مي خورد اما با کنار هم قرار دادن حروف نخست اين جملات در زبان انگليسي يك كلمه (Swine خوک ) بسيار اهانت آميز ساخته مي شود.

              گروه هنري دانمارکي اعلام کرده است، هدف از انجام اين کار به هيچ وجه توهين به مردم ايران نيست بلکه هدف آن*ها انتقاد از سياست هاي تندروانه احمدي نژاد است.

                  Denmark: Iran would compensate attack

                  COPENHAGEN, Denmark - Iran has agreed to compensate Denmark for damage to the Danish Embassy in Tehran during fiery protests last year over the publication of Prophet Muhammad cartoons, the Danish foreign minister said Wednesday

                  Both sides were still working out the amount to be paid, Foreign Minister Per Stig Moeller.

                  The 12 cartoons first published in Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten and reprinted in a range of Western media triggered massive protests in the Muslim world, where the drawings were seen as blasphemous. An angry mob attacked the Tehran embassy with rocks and firebombs in February 2006.

                  Similar attacks occurred in Lebanon and Syria, and Denmark has requested a total of $618,000 in compensation from the three countries.

                  After a meeting with his Iranian counterpart Wednesday, Moeller said the Iranians had partially agreed to the Danish demands.

                  "It's the obligation of the Iranian government to protect the embassies ... and it's good that the Iranian government accepts this," Moeller told reporters in Copenhagen. "Now it's a question of figures and I hope we find a good result for all of us."

                  Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki was less committal, however, saying at a joint news conference that "those who have been the cause of such problems" should pay. But he added that "we have to manage and find solutions" to the issue.

                  Lebanon has agreed to pay $127,000 about 60 percent of the sum Denmark asked for but Iran and Syria had so far refused.

                    COPENHAGEN, Denmark - Eight men with alleged links to leading senior al-Qaida terrorists were arrested in the heart of Denmark on Tuesday, the country's intelligence service said, claiming to have thwarted a bomb plot.

                    The pre-dawn raids sent jitters through a country that stirred Muslim anger and deadly protests last year after a newspaper printed 12 cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

                    "This could indicate that (al-Qaida) now is able to pick up the phone and order a terror act in Denmark," said Hans Joergen Bonnichsen, who retired as operative head of the PET intelligence service in 2006.

                    However, Jakob Scharf, head of the PET, said the foiled terror plot was not connected to either the uproar over the prophet cartoons or Denmark's involvement in the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq.

                    The suspects — six Danish citizens and two foreigners with residence permits — had been under surveillance for some time when they were arrested.

                    "With the arrests, we have prevented a terror attack," Scharf told reporters in Copenhagen. He did not identify the target.

                    The suspects, aged 19 to 29, were not identified but Scharf described them as "militant Islamists with connections to leading al-Qaida persons."

                    All eight were arrested without incident in raids on 11 locations in and around Copenhagen, including the Ishoej suburb and the Noerrebro district of the capital, authorities said.

                    The suspects are of Afghan, Pakistani, Somali and Turkish origin, Scharf told reporters. He said Danish investigators had worked with "several foreign cooperation partners" before making the arrests.

                    Two of the suspects, both 21, were arraigned in court later Tuesday on preliminary charges of acquiring material to make one or more bombs for terror attacks in Denmark or abroad.

                    They sat quietly with their arms crossed listening to the preliminary charges before reporters were ordered out of the courtroom.

                    The court ordered both held in custody for 27 days — the first 13 days in solitary confinement — while investigators continue to the probe. It was not immediately clear when the six others would be arraigned.

                    Scharf declined to say whether more people were being sought.

                    The TV2 News channel reported that a 19-year-old electrician was arrested in Ishoej, while a taxi driver in his early 20s was arrested in Noerrebro. TV footage shot from a helicopter showed bomb squads and forensics agents at those locations.

                    In Ishoej, anti-terror police broke down the door of the apartment where a Turkish family was living, Karina Elbaek, who lives on the floor below, told The Associated Press.

                    "They were ordinary neighbors, really friendly, helpful and extroverted," Elbaek said of the family.

                    Sadie al-Fatlawi, who lives on the floor above the cab driver in Noerrebro, said police ordered him and other neighbors to leave the building during the raid.

                    "When we came down to the police van they said that they suspected that there were some explosives in the property, or something that could burn very violently," al-Fatlawi told the AP.

                    The taxi driver was of Pakistani origin and had recently moved into the building, al-Fatlawi said.

                    Danish public radio DR identified a third suspect as a man of Afghan origin who had grown a beard and wore traditional Afghan clothing. He lived with parents and his two sisters in Avedoere, another suburb south of the capital, DR said, citing neighbors.

                    It is the third time Danish police have cracked down on suspected terrorist networks since 2005.

                    A separate trial of four men suspected of planning to blow up a target in Denmark or elsewhere in Europe is to begin in Copenhagen on Wednesday.

                    In February, a court sentenced Abdul Basit Abu Lifa, a Danish citizen of Palestinian descent, to seven years in prison for his involvement in a Bosnia-linked plot to blow up a target in Europe. Three other defendants were acquitted, although one is awaiting a retrial.

                    Terrorists have not hit Denmark in more than two decades, but the July 2005 bombings in London stirred fears that the Scandinavian country could be targeted for its participation in the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq.

                    Those fears grew after a Danish newspaper published 12 cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad, triggering fiery protests in Muslim countries in early 2006. Many Muslims considered the drawings blasphemous.

                    In June, Denmark pulled out its 460-member army contingent from Iraq and replaced it with a small air force squad.

                      Danish police have arrested three people suspected of planning to attack a cartoonist who drew caricatures satirising the Prophet Muhammad.
                      Denmark's intelligence agency said the arrests were made in the western Aarhus region at 0330 GMT "to prevent a murder linked to terrorism".

                      Two of the suspects are Tunisian and the third is a Dane of Moroccan origin.

                      The pictures in Denmark's biggest daily newspaper Jyllands-Posten in September 2005 sparked deadly worldwide protests.

                      The Danish citizen will be released pending further investigation, while the Tunisians will be held until they are expelled from the country, said the Danish intelligence agency PET.

                      Earlier reports said five people had been arrested.

                      'Concrete plans'

                      The intelligence agency said the detentions were made "after lengthy surveillance".

                      I have turned fear into anger and resentment

                      Kurt Westergaard
                      Cartoonist

                      It did not identify the target of the alleged plot, but the online edition of Jyllands-Posten said its cartoonist, Kurt Westergaard, was the focus.

                      The newspaper, based in Aarhus, said Mr Westergaard, 73, and his 66-year-old wife, Gitte, had been under police protection for the past three months.

                      In a statement on Jyllands-Posten's website, Mr Westergaard said: "Of course I fear for my life when the police intelligence service say that some people have concrete plans to kill me.

                      "But I have turned fear into anger and resentment."



                      The BBC's Thomas Buch-Andersen in Copenhagen says the arrests have stunned people in Denmark, where the furore over the cartoons was thought to have passed.

                      Mr Westergaard was one of 12 artists behind the drawings but he was responsible for what was considered the most controversial of the pictures.

                      The caricature featured the head of Islam's holiest prophet with a turban depicting a bomb with a lit fuse.

                      The cartoons were later reprinted by more than 50 newspapers, triggering a wave of protests in parts of the Muslim world.

                      The demonstrations culminated a year ago with the torching of Danish diplomatic offices in Damascus and Beirut and dozens of deaths in Nigeria, Libya and Pakistan.
