Mohammed Cartoon Watch: Sudan Urges Boycott of Denmark

President Omar al-Bashir of Sudan today called upon the Muslim World to boycott Denmark because of the Mohammed cartoons.

President Omar al-Bashir said Wednesday that he would bar Danes from Sudan and told tens of thousands of people at a government-backed rally that the Muslim world should boycott Denmark because of a reprinted cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad.

“We urge all Muslims around the world to boycott Danish commodities, goods, companies, institutions, organizations and personalities,” al- Bashir told the crowd outside the Republic Palace in downtown Khartoum.

“Down, down, Denmark!” shouted the crowd. Al-Bashir vowed that “not a single Danish foot will from now on desecrate the land of Sudan.”

It was not clear whether al-Bashir planned to act on his rhetoric and force out the hundreds of Danes who work in Sudan, most in aid organizations, with a dozen in the U.N. peacekeeping force in southern Sudan. Danish diplomats in Khartoum said they had not been notified of a new trade boycott and that Sudanese authorities had not notified them about expelling Danes.

Seventeen Danish newspapers reprinted the cartoon showing Muhammad wearing a bomb-shaped turban this month in a gesture of solidarity after police said they uncovered a plot to kill the cartoon’s artist.

Sudan was one of the nations where large protests were held against Denmark in 2006 when the cartoon and 11 others depicting Muhammad and Islam were first published. In riots that followed around the Muslim world, dozens of people were killed and several Danish embassies were attacked, while Danish goods were boycotted.

Flap says SUPPORT Denmark for allowing freedom of speech. Do NOT let these Islamic extremists crush freedom of expression.

MM asks why aren’t ANY American diplomats saying ANYTHING about this outrage?

In the meantime, how about SUPPORTING DENMARK.

  1. The freedom of speech means the freedom to insult or criticize anyone you want.

    Jesus has been ridiculed and blasphemed for centuries and you do not see Christians rioting or assassinating cartoonists.

  2. I think that free speech has the potential to be dangerous (like, being free to talk to a young people on a regular basis and try to persuade them to hate various groups/people), but something like commentary and drawings on something as big as Islam… gimme a break. When it comes to breaking religious laws, I say leave it to God to punish those that offend. God doesn’t need humans enforcing divine rules.
