German Right Wingers Anger Muslims with Mohammed Cartoon
Right-wing demonstrators in Berlin have angered local Muslims by displaying a caricature of Mohammed outside a mosque. The image was carried by the Pro Deutschland group, along with slogans saying "Hasta la vista Salafista" (Goodbye Salafism).
The demonstrators were granted permission to carry the caricature, which originally appeared in a Danish newspaper, by an administrative court in Berlin. The group plans to continue its demonstrations outside other mosques in Berlin.
"We don't ridicule anyone. We will present our arguments. We have to begin a debate and that couldn't have happened if not for a series of demonstrations in April and May. Politicians only react if a subject gets attention," the chairman of the protest group, Manfred Rouhs, was quoted as saying by Euronews. (...)
