A Pakistani police officer arrest a protester who is condeming the publication of cartoons of Islamic Prophet Muhammad, in Karachi, Pakistan, Friday, Feb 17, 2006. A Pakistani cleric on Friday announced a US$1 million bounty for killing a cartoonist who drew Prophet Muhammad, as thousands joined street rallies across the country and authorities arrested scores of protesters.

Associated Press: Cleric: $1 Million to Kill Cartoonist

A Pakistani cleric announced Friday a $1 million bounty for killing a cartoonist who drew Prophet Muhammad, as thousands joined street protests and Denmark temporarily closed its embassy and advised its citizens to leave the country.

Police confined the former leader of an Islamic militant group to his home to prevent him from addressing supporters over the cartoons, amid fears he could incite violence, after riots this week killed five people.

Security forces were out in strength, particularly around government offices and Western businesses, as Muslims streamed onto the streets after Friday prayers. More than 200 people were detained, but most gatherings were peaceful.

In neighboring India, police used batons and tear gas to disperse thousands of angry worshippers who rioted in the southern city of Hyderabad. They burned Danish flags, pelted police with stones, and looted shops. Hundreds more protested in Bangladesh.

The stakes rise for the Muhammad Caricatures. What Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said last week is coming to fruition…… the situation is “spinning out of control”.

In the northwestern Pakistan city of Peshawar, prayer leader Mohammed Yousaf Qureshi announced the bounty for killing a cartoonist to about 1,000 people outside the Mohabat Khan mosque.

Qureshi said the mosque and his religious school would give $25,000 and a car, while a local jewelers’ association would give another $1 million. No representative of the association was available to confirm it had made the offer.

“This is a unanimous decision by all imams (prayer leaders) of Islam that whoever insults the prophet deserves to be killed and whoever will take this insulting man to his end, will get this prize,” Qureshi said.

Qureshi did not name any cartoonist in his announcement. He did not appear aware that 12 different people had drawn the pictures.

Does this mean $ 12 million total?

Doubtful……..

Denmark announced it had temporarily closed its embassy in Pakistan. It also advised against all travel to Pakistan and urged Danes still in the country to leave.

“We have decided to do so because of the general security situation in the country,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Lars Thuesen said.

Denmark has already temporarily closed its embassies in Lebanon, Syria, Iran and Indonesia after anti-Danish protests and threats against staff.

Pakistan, meanwhile, recalled its ambassador to Denmark for “consultations” about the cartoons, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Tasnim Aslam said.

And the diplomatic wars are “spinning out of contrtol” as well……

Stay tuned…….

Muhammad Caricature Watch: Pakistani Cleric Offers Money and Car for Anyone who kills the Danish Cartoonist Who Drew Prophet Muhammad

Paramilitary forces guard a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in Lahore, Pakistan, as demonstrations over cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad continue to fan anti-Western sentiment.

CBS/AP: Cleric Offers Money To Kill Cartoonist

A Pakistani cleric offered a 1.5 million rupee reward and a car for anyone who kills the Danish cartoonist who drew Prophet Muhammad, while another Islamist leader was put under house detention, amid fears of more deadly demonstrations Friday, officials said.

Protests sparked by the Muhammad caricature continue in numerous cities around the globe. In Pakistan, thousands of security forces have been deployed to prevent unrest.

Police have arrested 125 protesters for violating a ban on rallies in eastern Pakistan and arrested 30 others after firing tear gas to disperse a protest in the southern city of Karachi.

More unrest in Pakistan and Bill Clinton is in town to see President Gen. Pervez Musharraf.

Mohammed Yousaf Qureshi, prayer leader at the historic Mohabat Khan mosque in the northwestern city of Peshawar, announced at the mosque and the Jamia Ashrafia religious school that he leads would give a 1.5 million rupee reward and a car for killing the cartoonist of the Prophet pictures that appeared first in a Danish newspaper in September.

Police were ordered to restrict the movement of all religious leaders who might address any rallies and round up religious activists “who could be any threat to law and order,” a senior police official said in the main eastern city of Lahore.

Now, are these restrictions without a court order or a warrant……..?

Imagine if the FBI attempted to restrict the movements of Jesse Jackson or Joseph Lowery……

In Islamabad, there were about 7,000 protesters Friday, while about 5,000 others took to the streets chanting slogans in the city of Quetta.

In Multan, about 300 police swooped down on 125 protesters who had gathered Friday morning at a traffic circle, chanting, “We are slaves of the prophet,” and trampling on a Danish flag, said Sharif Zafar, a police official.

Protesters shouted “Death to Musharraf” as they were bundled into two police buses, referring to Pakistan’s leader, President Gen. Pervez Musharraf, who the Bush administration has called a strong ally in the war on terror.

So, the protests continue, Musharraf cracks down on the unrestand Mullahs and former President Clinton shows up to buttress Musharraf. Both know that the protest have nothing to do with the Muhammad Caricatures but everything to do with the desire of Pakistani Mullahs to take control of the Pakistani government.

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton, left, meets with Pakistan’s President Gen. Pervez Musharraf at President House in Islamabad, Pakistan, Friday, Feb. 17, 2006. Clinton criticized cartoons of Islamic Prophet Muhammad, but he said Muslims wasted the opportunity to build better ties with the west by holding violent protests against the drawings.

The crackdown follows violent protests in Pakistan this week in which five people died and Western businesses were vandalized and burned. Thousands of security forces were deployed Friday in major cities, also including Rawalpindi, Quetta and Peshawar, in anticipation of more rallies.

Clerics at mosques across the country condemned the cartoons.

“Oh God, please punish those who dared to publish these sacrilegious cartoons … Give enough power to the Muslim countries and enable them to take revenge,” said Qari Saeed Ullah, a prayer leader in Islamabad.

Muhammad Caricature Watch: “Roses of the Prophet Muhammad.”

Posted on

Persian sign of ‘Danish pastries’ right, and ‘Roses of Prophet Mohammad’ are seen in a bakers in Tehran Thursday Feb. 16, 2006. Iran is taking the fight against cartoons considered blasphamous by Muslims to a new ground: Renaming ‘Danish pastries’ into ‘Roses of Prophet Mohammad’ in the country of cake lovers.

ASSociated Press: Iran Renames Danish Pastries

Iranians love Danish pastries, but when they look for the flaky dessert at the bakery they now have to ask for “Roses of the Prophet Muhammad.”

Bakeries across the capital were covering up their ads for Danish pastries Thursday after the confectioners’ union ordered the name change in retaliation for caricatures of the Muslim prophet published in a Danish newspaper.

“Given the insults by Danish newspapers against the prophet, as of now the name of Danish pastries will give way to ‘Rose of Muhammad’ pastries,” the union said in its order.

“This is a punishment for those who started misusing freedom of expression to insult the sanctities of Islam,” said Ahmad Mahmoudi, a cake shop owner in northern Tehran.
