Do you think that the "Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy" could lead to a terrorist attack in Denmark?

Gideon Reich of the Armchair Intellectual is taking a look on the current "war on terror" situation. [Via the Secular Foxhole.]

Here is an excerpt from Amy Alkon's post, Bowing To The Barbarians.

Yeah, and my atheistic religion forbids the murder of innocent people, but the other side isn't exactly pulling out the stops for the likes of me. I just love this: fighting terror with...turning tail and scurrying back in our own spider holes.

Here's Mohammed with the bomb/turban on his head. A whole bunch of the cartoons are here (kudos to MSNBC.com for making them available). I'm sorry, but should we be offended by the cartoon itself, or because there's so much truth to it? Too little, too late of "moderate" Muslims coming out for the supposed peace their religion is based on, and too many readings from their Koran and followers of their religion advocating violence. There are a few nuts on the Christian "Right" blowing up abortion clinics, but, by and large, there's no other religion than Islam where so many people are advocating the murder of anyone who doesn't think just like them. Fucking primitives. (AdviceGoddess.com, 02/04/06.)

From the article, Sweden dragged into cartoon row:

"We have freedom of the press in our country and everyone has to take responsibility in the context of freedom of the press, and I appreciate very much the responsibility shown by the Swedish media," said Freivalds, following a meeting of the parliamentary foreign affairs committee at Stockholm’s Royal Palace.

From Michael Moynihan's post, Disgusting. [Via InstaPundit.]

According to Dagens Nyheter, the Swedish security services (Säpo), in collusion with Foreign Minister Leila Freivalds, have forced the website SD-Kuriren offline for publishing the Jyllands-Posten cartoons (SD-Kuriren is the house organ of the hard-right Swedish Democrats).

From my post, THE DARK SIDE OF SWEDEN.

Did you know that Sweden had censorship laws in place during the WWII? Torgny Segerstedt, chief editor of Göteborgs Handels- och Sjöfarts-Tidning, took a stand against Nazi Germany.
