"Blow up the Danish embassies and kill the ambassadors"

The Danish protests, which started before the reprinting of the controversial Muhammed cartoons and quickly spread to other Muslim countries after the cartoons were republished, has led to Hamas,calling for the attack Danish embassies and diplomats.
Last week, here at Wake up America, we reported the continuing rioting in Denmark and followed up with the spread of protesting into Iran, Kuwait and The Gaza Strip.

Today we see reports of Iranian lawmakers urging the president to review ties with Denmark and the Netherlands because of the reprinting of the Muhammed cartoons that caused massive protests when they were first released over two years ago.

In a letter to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, some 215 MPs in Iran's 290-seat assembly said Iran should review trade and political links with Denmark and the Netherlands to respond to "an anti-Islamic and Islamophobic current" in the two countries.

"We, representatives of the honourable Iranian nation, condemn this devil measure. We ask the president ... to seriously review Iran's political and trade ties with these countries," the lawmakers wrote in the letter, state radio said.

Hamas, the Islamic group that controls the Gaza Strip calls for more violent methods of protesting by urging the Muslim faithful to attack Danish embassies and Diplomats.

Abu Abir, spokesman for the Popular Resistance Committees (PRC), spoke at a news conference in Gaza Square, called for Islamic fighters to "Blow up the Danish embassies and kill the ambassadors", the further went on to encourage them to "track down those who printed the cartoons, those who drew them and those who published them and slaughter them immediately"

In the meantime, the riots continue for the eighth day in Denmark, resulting so far in the arrests of dozen immigrant youths and hundreds of cars and a number of schools burned or vandalized in the past week.

In a very strange assertion, the police actually state that "unusually mild weather and the closure of schools for a winter break might have contributed," to the reasons for these riots, completely ignoring that the riots started right after the arrest of the three men that were plotting to kill the cartoonist, Kurt Westergaard, that created the most controversial of the twelve original cartoons in 2005, the one depicting Muhammed with a bomb-shaped turban and a burning fuse.

Now head over to Malkin's site where she provides a list of Danish products that can be bought in her "Buy Danish" campaign which she started in 2006.
