Nasrallah Threatens Denmark, Norway and France

Before an audience of tens of thousands of his supporters, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, said yesterday that if the Fatwa of Ayatollah Khomeini had been implemented against Salman Rushdie and if he was killed, the racist caricatures against the Prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper would never have happened.
Boycotting Danish products and recalling ambassadors from Denmark is not enough, he said, and he called for Muslims around the world to take a hard stance.
He added that “if we forgive them only God knows what they will do next”, and that Muslims should try a different approach with Denmark, Norway and France if they do not take appropriate measures.
“It is about the prophet of 1.4 billion Muslims,” he said, “and I am confident that not only are there millions of Muslims but … hundreds of millions of Muslims that are ready to sacrifice their lives...for the dignity of their Prophet.”
He said that followers of all monotheistic religions should take a serious stand against this insult.
Citing freedom of expression, the governments of Denmark and Norway refused to apologize for the 12 insulting caricatures against the Prophet Mohammed published in their local papers.
Nasrallah compared the nordic governments' stand to that of Muslim leaders refusing to apologize in case some Muslim blows himself up in a crowd in Denmark. "After all he is free to blow himself up," Nasrallah added.
