    Denmark holds 'Muhammad cartoon plotters'

    Quote Originally Posted by BBC News

    Five suspected Islamist militants have been arrested for planning to attack a Danish newspaper that printed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in 2005.

    The men wanted to "kill as many people as possible" at the Copenhagen offices of Jyllands-Posten, officials said.

    Denmark's Justice Minister Lars Barfoed said it was the country's most serious terrorist plot.

    Four suspects - including three Swedes - were held in Denmark, and the fifth was detained in Sweden, police said.

    The four held in Denmark were picked up in raids in Greve and Herlev, near Copenhagen, where police found an automatic weapon, a silencer and live ammunition, according to Denmark's security agency, Pet.

    The agency's chief, Jakob Scharf, said the four held in Denmark had been planning to enter the building housing the Jyllands-Posten and "kill as many of the people present as possible".

    He said an "imminent terror attack" had been foiled and described some of the suspects as "militant Islamists".

    Mr Barfoed said in a statement that the plot was "outrageous" and described it as "the most serious attempt at terror so far in Denmark".

    Couple that with 12 Somali's arrested in the Netherlands on Dec 25th.
    Add the other 12 arrested in the UK on Dec 20th for terrorist plots

    The targets seem to be coming more from inside the country than outside. I'm also seeing (possibly) a trend to attack Europe more and more. I didn't include the successful bombing in Sweden over this same cartoon issue from 2005. The West may not be at war with Islam, but a certain portion of Islam sure is at war with us.

He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    What do you expect? It's Christmas time. What would the holiday be like without exploding Jihadis? It just wouldn't be the same. It's become a tradition.

    Apparently, terrorists are cheaper by the dozen. It's like the 12 days of Islamic Terrorism.

    Its a supersecret handshake headcount with all the rabid pukes in this country, Europe, and all the fundamentalist states in the Middle East. They just started counting off...but since it cant be confirmed they agreed to settle on just 1/5th of the total muslim population...more than 5, less than a billion.

    Now...if you are feeling all kinds of bored, go ahead and look up all the populations in the fundamentalist countries. And all the extremist mosques in...say...England...and Denmark...etc...

    WTF????

    So the entire population of places like Saudi Arabia count towards your mythical Muslim extremist figure? Do I really need to point out how asinine that reasoning is? Most credible sources put Muslim extremists at less than a 0.01 PERCENT of the entire Muslim population (1.5 billion people).

    Your figure is just ridiculous and cannot be taken to hold any truth.
