Mission Accomplished, Time to Go Home

Denmark is the luckiest country on earth today.

Denmark’s most prominent Muslim leader, who led criticism of a Danish newspaper that published drawings of the Prophet Muhammad, has decided to leave the country, the daily reported Thursday.

Imam Ahmed Abu Laban said he has felt humiliated in the aftermath of the cartoon controversy, which led to riots around the world, and that he would leave Denmark to return to Gaza with his family, the Jyllands-Posten newspaper wrote.

“I have recently felt that I am being viewed as a simple terrorist. No human being can accept that. It is an extreme humiliation,” Abu Laban was quoted as saying. “I have taken the decision to leave Denmark.”

For some reason–cough FEAR cough–the JPost article doesn’t mention Abu Laban’s prominent role in Cartoon Jihad. He was its author and instigator, working for months and traveling the globe more than Indiana Jones to stir up trouble over a dozen innocuous cartoons. See Taqiyya: Anatomy of the Comic Jihad. Three minutes and you’ll understand the whole thing. You’ll have that song in your head for days, too.

Michelle, Please post Abu’s Gaza address so I can send him a Motley Crue Doctor Feelgood CD, featuring the song,”Don’t go away mad (just go away).” Thanks

Denmark lucked out, now if just a few more would leave!

Michelle,

I concur with bucktowndusty. If you can get Laban’s address or email address, I think we can all send him a choice list of songs; I have a few songs to mind, the titles of which can’t be printed here.

Buy Danish!

There is an old song by Extreme (and a personal favorite of mine), that advises “If you don’t like what you see here, get the F#@& out!” An anthem for rotten apples everywhere…

Songs as a going away gift? I don’t think so. How about his choice of any three Muhammad cartoons? Maybe an uncensored episode of South Park. Or maybe a pound of Danish ham to remember Denmark by.

So this f***wad wants out because it has become ‘humiliating’ being in a peaceful Western democracy like Denmark whereas Gaza, of course, is such a dream destination.

Maybe it is the threat of prosecution from the Danish authorities for fraudulently misrepresenting the country and causing Denmark millions in lost exports and incitement to violence? Maybe also because the average Dane is going to pulverise him sooner than later.

But him ending up in Gaza, oh utopia of utopias, is such sweet justice. Me, I would choose a Danish prison.

Someone let the Israelis know where he ends up, ok? Mind the missiles a**hole.
