The Art Newspaper has reported that the Museum of Danish Cartoon Art in Copenhagen is currently in talks to acquire the 12 controversial Muhammad cartoons that caused probably the largest and most insane reaction to a cartoon that I have ever seen. More than one hundred people were killed in protests around the world (according to wikipedia).
After seeing the reaction that the cartoons have already created, I think the Danish museum would be putting the public at risk if they were to buy them. Security would have to be tighter than any airport in the world as they are taunting a lot of angry bulls with a giant red rag. By having the Muhammad cartoons in one place they are making themselves a big fat target.
As much as I like freedom of speech, I like my life more, so I wouldn’t go anywhere near the museum. We just have to accept that we live in an insane world and move on.
Danish museum to buy Muhammad cartoons which sparked global riots
“Three men are currently serving six-year jail terms in the UK for soliciting murder at a demonstration outside the Danish Embassy in London in February 2006. A fourth man was convicted of inciting race hate and jailed for four years. In Germany as we went to press, a Lebanese man is on trial, accused of planting suitcase bombs on a train in Cologne in July 2006. His alleged accomplice, Jihad Hamad, was given a 12-year sentence by a Beirut court for the same offense. Hamad told the Lebanese court that the bombs, which failed to explode, were planted in “revenge” for the publication of the cartoons.” The Art Newspaper
