“The cartoonist has become a fighting heathen whom it is permissible to kill.”

From the NY Times:

Najmaddin Faraj Ahmad, known as Mullah Krekar, was arrested Thursday in Oslo on preliminary charges of inciting to commit criminal offense, a day after giving an interview to Norwegian broadcaster NRK. He was also apprehended on preliminary charges for threating a Kurdish immigrant living in Norway in the same TV interview. Preliminary charges are one step short of formal charges.

“Whoever offends our religion and our honor, must understand that this is a conflict about life and death,” Ahmad told NRK. “The cartoonist has become a fighting heathen whom it is permissible to kill.”

Welcome to the front-lines, ink-slingers.

Well, Mr Mullah – whoever offends or doesn’t like our freedom of speech and the rules of a laicist and democratic society and who acts like a religious lunatic must understand that he or she may get mocked in cartoons.

The problem with these guys is that they’ve convinced themselves that it’s ok to kill anyone for any reason.
