Speech at the Danish Free Press Society, Copenhagen

Muhammad, as you all know, is the prophet of Islam. The word ‘prophet’ comes from Greek, and in Greek the word ‘prophet’ originally meant ‘spokesman’. Islam, we have to understand, teaches that Muhammad was God’s spokesman and that he died in the year 632 in Medina, a town located in a geographical area that is now part of modern Saudi-Arabia.

Islam commands Muslims to follow Muhammad’s example down to the smallest details. The obligation to imitate Muhammad makes it important to Muslims that they should know how exactly Muhammad behaved, and which acts and deeds he forbade, recommended, commanded or tolerated. Moreover, whatever he did is a legal precedent. He was, after all, God’s spokesman.

• Book essay: The Bloody Truth about Cyprus

EuropeNews 28 April 2011
Bloody truth, Nicosia, March 2009. ISBN 9789963962204
By Henrik R. Clausen

The apparently endless stalemate on Cyprus is getting a thorough treatment in the publication by the organization “Freedom and Justice for Cyprus”.

While the documentation of what went down through the 1960's and 1970's is shocking and brutal, the real coup of the book is that it goes back to the 1950's, once and for all settling the question of who originally created the conflict in Cyprus: It wasn't the 'Turkish' Cypriots. Nor was it Turkey. It was, documentably, Great Britain.
