Muslim Man Attempts To Kill Kurt Westergaard With Axe At His Home

Danish political cartoonist Kurt Westergaard faced a horrific scene with his 5-year-old granddaughter when they had to hide in a “panic room” inside his home after a man smashed in his front door while wielding an axe and a knife. The 28-year-old Somali then attacked responding police, who shot him. Westergaard is the creator of the cartoons of Muhammad that triggered worldwide protests and led to calls for his death by Muslims.

The suspect was shot in the right leg and left hand. He lives in Denmark and has been charged with the attempted assassination of Westergaard and a police officer. Danish police say that he is connected to al-Shabaab, al Qaeda’s ally in east Africa.

In Mogadishu, al-Shabaab spokesman Sheikh Ali Mohamud Rage (yes, his name is Rage) expressed delight over one of his own trying to attack an elderly man and his five-year-old granddaughter with an axe: “We are very happy with the Somali national who attacked the house of the Danish cartoonist who previously insulted our prophet Mohammed. This is an honor for the Somali people. We are telling that we are glad that anyone who insults Islam should be attacked wherever they are.” Well, at least someone is happy.

  1. I can hear the axe murderers’ lobbists now. “Don’t judge all axes or axe murderers by this one single case. Axes don’t kill people…”

  2. Deborah:

    “And kill them wherever ye shall find them, and eject them from whatever place they have ejected you; for civil discord is worse than carnage: yet attack them not at the sacred Mosque, unless they attack you therein; but if they attack you, slay them. Such the reward of the infidels…Fight therefore against them until there be no more civil discord, and the only worship be that of God: but if they desist, then let there be no hostility, save against the wicked.”
    ~Sura 2:187-189

  3. Not that I do, of course, but if you accept that it was OK to attack Westergaard, then what was the five year-old’s crime? Why did she deserve to be threatened and terrorized?

  4. Has anyone read Jessica Stern’s “Terror in the Name of God: Why Religious Militants Kill”? Quite eye-opening info on the psychology of young men, fanaticism, and beliefs. Scary.

  5. Propaganda Rule #4 – Get ’em while they’re young!

    They are indeed easier to indoctrinate when still to young to possess their full reasoning faculties.

    Look at the film “Jesus Camp” for a fine example from the other side of the “crazy killers in the name of God” coin. Jesus Camp. Madrassa. Same thing. Same message. Different brands.

  6. Mespo,

    Give me your young and I too can teach them How to become Pope and to work for the US Executive Branch.

  7. Brave guys those radical followers of Islam. What’s next? An attack on a nursery perhaps.

  8. I thought Somalia was home of the Pirate School of Profiteering. Oh by, I guess this guys name does not translate to Rodger and he is certainly not Jolly. Holy maybe a few holes….
