Angry CNSNews.com ‘Descendants of Mohammed’ Confront Newspapers Over Cartoons, Demanding A

Quote:
(CNSNews.com) – After securing an apology from one Danish newspaper for publishing a cartoon satirizing Mohammed, a Saudi lawyer now plans to confront another 15 newspapers, filing lawsuits against them if necessary.

Faisal Yamani says he is acting on behalf of eight Muslim organizations representing “descendants of Mohammed.”

He told the Danish tabloid B.T. that he has 15 newspapers in his sights. His clients have made it clear they are ready to finance a campaign of lawsuits if the papers refuse to follow the example of the liberal daily Politiken and apologize. Yamani did not say how much he would aim to extract from the media organizations but referred to “a long and very expensive legal action.”

On Friday, Politiken published a formal apology to “anyone who was offended” by its decision to reproduce one of the 12 cartoons which triggered an international furor after another Danish paper, Jyllands-Posten, first published them in September 2005.

Politiken editor Toeger Seidenfaden said his paper had not published the sketch “as a statement of editorial opinion or values but merely as part of the newspaper’s news coverage.”

“It was never Politiken’s intention to offend Muslims in Denmark or elsewhere.”

In a joint statement with Yamani, the newspaper said that the Saudi lawyer’s clients had as a result of the apology now agreed “not to pursue any legal or administrative action against Politiken.”

The cartoon printed by Politiken was the one depicting a man wearing a turban shaped like a bomb with its fuse lit, drawn by cartoonist Kurt Westergaard.

Among the others, submitted by various artists, one showed “Mohammed” with eyes blacked out and carrying a large, curved knife, flanked by two burqa-clad women, while another depicted him telling a line of suicide bombers seeking entry to paradise: “Stop, stop, we have run out of virgins.” A more benign interpretation portrayed a man in white with a beard, a stick and a donkey.

CNSNews.com - ?Descendants of Mohammed? Confront Newspapers Over Cartoons, Demanding Apologies and Eyeing Lawsuits

Any newspaper, no matter where in the world who gives into threats and intimidation by extremists is a threat to freedom and the search for truth every where.

Many in the muslim world still live with their 7th century belief's and it is high time the world stop catering to them. They are no more sensitive to criticisms than any other religion or people, but they are the only ones who kill regualarly those who disagree with them.

*shakes head sadly*

If we were to go back a decade or two, how many cartoons in "The New Yorker" magazine made light of other religions? Did anybody get truly offended?

The society nowdays, if someone said that brown hair wasn't as nice as blond hair, someone whould get thier panties in a twist. What happened to laughing at ones self? Accepting differences in points of view?

*wanders off mumbling to herself*
