Ex-Islamist: Hamas, Hezbollah involved in cartoon controversy
Danish Muslim who had leading role in 2006 riots reveals conspiracy between imams and terrorist groups at heart of violence
“An ex-Islamist says Hamas, Hezbollah, and various Muslim diplomats all conspired to fan flames of rioting after Denmark’s 2006 Muhammed cartoon controversy. Here’s how AP/Times of Israel quoted Ahmed Akkari, a Danish Muslim
The protests and violence were thought to be spontaneous reactions, even as the ensuing mayhem escalated to the point that it was dubbed the worst international crisis for Denmark since World War II by Danish Prime Minister Anders Rasmussen.
However, according to Akkari, there was nothing spontaneous about the Muslim reaction to the cartoons. On the contrary, it was a calculated response drawn up by Danish imams and various Muslim ambassadors who appealed for help to both influential Muslim states and terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Hezbollah.”
