Speaking tonight with Paul Belien of the Brussels Journal, who published within the last hours a stunning account of how the cartoon intifada riots stem in part from a hoax authored by hothead Danish imams.
The original 12 cartoon drawings of Mohammed and Islamic topics were published last September in Denmark. Danish imams, lead by hottest head Ahmad Abu Ladan, boss of the Islamic Society of Denmark, demanded apologies and reparations of obedience from the newspaper, the media, the government, and various ugly ducklings flying by; when that didn't work, Team Danish Hothead took the show on the road. Faxing and distributing the cartoons around the ummah and outposts, the imams added three cartoons that had not been published. When challenged, Team Danish Hothead claimed the additions were Danish original cartoons that illustrated the sort of disrespect that jihad and its pals routinely suffer in Denmark and Europe. The road show turned into an intifada when Damascus and Tehran seized on the Danish teacup tempest and dramatized big in Damascus and Beirut, burning flags, buildings, Euro bridges, swans.
