Denmark: Four Muslims Charged in Plot to Kill a Large Number of People and ‘Seriously Frighten the Population’ Because of Mohammed Cartoons

Sura 3:151, “We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve …”

Associated Press – “COPENHAGEN, Denmark — Danish prosecutors on Friday charged four people with terrorism for allegedly planning a shooting attack on a newspaper that had printed cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

The four men — Swedes living in Denmark — wanted ‘to seriously frighten the population’ and destabilize Denmark by planning a shooting spree inside the Copenhagen offices of the Jyllands-Posten newspaper, Svend Ulrik Larsen, Denmark’s top prosecutor, said.

The paper published 12 cartoons of the prophet in 2005, sparking riots in Muslim countries and calls for revenge against the Danish publishers and cartoonists.

Larsen said the group traveled to Copenhagen with arms and ammunition, aiming to kill ‘a larger number of people.’

Swedish and Danish intelligence officials said they have followed the men for months and tailed the their hired car from Stockholm before arresting them at a flat near the Danish capital.

The Danish Security and Intelligence Service described some of the suspects as ‘militant Islamists with relations to international terror networks.’

‘This is a very serious case. We believe they wanted to attack the (Copenhagen) newsroom of the Jyllands-Posten daily, possibly because of the Muhammad cartoons,’ Gyrithe Ulrich, the prosecutor who handles the case, told The Associated Press.” Read more.
