The Mujahideen Army in Iraq issued a statement yesterday, January 29, 2006, in which they posit their belief that the picture representations of the Prophet Muhammad are tantamount to hatred of Islam by Denmark and Norway, and this ?insult which they dared to do in public? and excuse that it is freedom of through is a ?very bad sign and a very shameful position built on a deep hatred and long-lasting dislike and insistence to make an enemy of Islam, its Messenger, and its great book.?
According to the statement, a boycott of ?milks and cheeses? is a ?very slim position which represents a very weak nation?. Rather, the Mujahideen Army calls upon its brigades to ?target all that they can target? of Denmark and Norway, and those who follow them, and concludes this as just since ?they are the ones who started and they have to bear its consequences.?
In September 2005, the Danish publication Jyllands Posten ran a series of cartoons of Prophet Muhammad, which Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen subsequently defended as just freedom of express. Picturesque representations of Allah and the Prophet Muhammad are forbidden within Islam.
