Danish Imams, having failed to intimidate the Danish PM into punishing Jyllands-Posten, are turning to the UN for sympathy and suing the Danish newspaper. Their charges are really outlandish:
Danish Muslim groups are to report Denmark to the UN Commissioner on Human Rights for failing to prosecute the newspaper that first published controversial cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
The 27 Muslim groups also plan to sue the newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, for defamation in a Danish court, according to their lawyer, Michael Christiani Havemann.
“Denmark is obliged through the UN to secure the civil rights of its citizens,” Havemann said by telephone. “The national prosecutor won’t pursue the case and, therefore, acts as a barrier to justice to the complainants.”
The complainants are charging defamation. Let me guess what their argument is going to be. Muhammad is their beloved prophet. When he is defamed, Islam is defamed. When Islam is defamed, they as Muslims are defamed.
