Danish police stop planned attack to kill over cartoons

Postby Charles » Wed Dec 29, 2010 11:49 am

Remember the cartoons published by a Danish newspaper that portrayed unflattering images of Muhammad? The whole thing broke out in 2006 and was a pretty big stick here on the forums. I remember it well.

The highlight of our discussion was when the founder of CartoonBrew made racist accusations against me and publicly quit the AN Forums. I've always maintained that fanboy animation critics are balanced.

Well, I still object to the killing of people over cartoon depictions of historical personalities, and I can still prove within Islamic theology that this kind of behavior is forbidden (the killing that is, unwarranted racists accusations and publicly quitting an animation forum I'll have to look in to).

The Danish police don't believe that it's warranted either and have arrested a group of suspects who planned on raiding the headquarters of the newspaper and shooting down as many people as possible.
