On your claim "Not a word spoken until the 'honest' Imams Abu Laben and Ahmed Akkari decided to do a 'Muslim World Tour" not only with the 12 original drawings, but with 3 fake ones..the fake ones were blatantly offensive, and those are the ones that spurred the riots and death threats. Honest muslims"?

I can't blame the two Imams, b/cos they have done what is supposed to be done, by reporting those provocative offensive catoons to the appropriate authority b/4 going round the muslim world. What have the Danish authority done? Those drawings were offensive & are against the sharia(Islamic law) & the Danish law, which says;

I quote from Section 266B of the Danish penal code: "Any person who publicly or with the intention of dissemination to a wide circle of people makes a statement or imparts other information threatening, insulting or degrading a group of persons on account of their race, colour, national or ethnic origin, belief or sexual orientation, shall be liable to a fine, simple detention or imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years."

Section 140 adds, "Those who publicly mock or insult the doctrines or worship of any religious community that is legal in this country, will be punished by a fine or incarceration for up to four months."
