Vikings Heroic Before Latest Islamofascist Outrage

SOLO-International Press Release: Vikings Heroic in Face of Latest Islamofascist Outrage

February 14, 2008

Denmark's three main newspapers are to be saluted for reprinting a cartoon showing the paedophile "prophet" Muhammad wearing a bomb instead of a turban, says SOLO Principal Lindsay Perigo. This, after the arrest yesterday of three Islamofascists for plotting to murder the artist.

Kurt Westergaard's cartoon was one of 12 depicting the barbarous bigot which triggered riots around the world by Islamofascists when they first appeared in 2005.

The newspapers—Jyllands-Posten, Politiken and Berlingske Tidende—have reprinted it as a nose-thumb against the plotters and the unspeakable wannabe tyranny they represent.

"If only media worldwide would display similar testicular fortitude! With what nausea do we recall the timidity of most media—and the American State Department—when the tawdry totalitarians first went berserk," says Perigo.

"By refreshing contrast, one of the finest statements in this whole affair has just been uttered by the Danish Prime Minister, Anders Fogh Rasmussen: 'Unfortunately, the matter shows that there are in Denmark groups of extremists that do not acknowledge and respect the principles on which Danish democracy is built. In Denmark we have freedom not only to think and talk, but also to draw.'

"Gordon Brown, of 'Public servants are not to mention Islam and terrorism in the same sentence' infamy, and George W. Bush, brown-noser of Saudi Arabia, please note.

"While the world perishes from its misbegotten attempts not to hurt the non-existent feelings of squalid savages, Mr. Rasmussen's words should be emblazoned across the sky as a reminder of what might have saved us," Perigo concludes.
