    Berlin Worried About 'Muhammad Cartoon Contest'



    A far-right group in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia is running a 'Muslim cartoon contest' and plans to display the works outside mosques. The move has alarmed authorities which fear it could incite violence and hurt German interests abroad, similar to the backlash that followed the 2005 publication of cartoons in Danish newspapers.


    The German government has voiced concern that far-right activists in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia may incite violence with plans to hold a so-called "Muhammad cartoon contest" and to stage demonstrations outside mosques in the run-up to a regional election there on May 13.

    SPIEGEL has learned that Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich warned of a confrontation between Salafists and right-wing extremists which he said could have unforeseeable consequences for public safety.


    Pro-NRW, which has been categorized as an extremist right-wing group by the domestic intelligence agency, has said it plans to display the cartoons outside 25 mosques in the state.

    Friedrich told lawmakers that this deliberate provocation would inflame tensions and lead to violent clashes, and that German embassies and companies operating abroad may also be affected, similar to the protests in Muslim countries following the publication in 2005 of Muhammad cartoons in Danish newspapers.

    Friedrich's state secretary, Klaus-Dieter Fritsche, has telephoned the North Rhine-Westphalia government several times in recent days to discuss the problem. The state's interior minister, Ralf Jäger, said: "The so-called cartoon contest is deliberately aimed at provoking Muslims." He said he had instructed police to prevent demonstrators from protesting in the immediate proximity of mosques.

    Fears That Salafists Will Heighten Tensions

    Security authorities are particularly concerned because radical Salafist groups, which have been courting publicity recently by distributing free copies of the Koran in inner cities across Germany, may have an interest in fuelling confrontations in response to Pro NRW's activities.

    Pro NRW showed cartoons of Muhammad on Saturday at demonstrations in the cities of Essen and Gelsenkirchen. Some 100 protestors attended the demonstrations, and they were outnumberd by hundreds of counter-demonstrators, reports said. There was no violence.

    "All democrats agree xenophobic incitement has no place here," said Jäger.

    Police had monitored both demonstrations to check whether the cartoons on display were in breach of the German constitution. That would be the case if they insulted a religious community in a way that posed a threat to public peace. But a police spokeswoman said no laws had been broken.

    The police had stopped the demonstrators from getting near mosques, and the Pro NRW demonstrators were also banned from displaying reprints of the original Danish cartoons that had led to worldwide protests.


    Pro NRW issued a statement on Sunday saying it would take legal action against the ban on showing Muhammad cartoons.

    "We won't accept this blatant breach of freedom of speech and artistic expression," Jörg Uckermann, the deputy Pro NRW chairman, said in a statement.

    Does not seem like it's the far right they're worried about, but pissing off some Muslims.

    Seems to me, that if you have a group of people who cause trouble when they get offended, you should stop letting them in your country. Then kick the rest of them out.


    I'm amazed that so many people are not bothered by all the trouble so many immigrant groups are causing. It's bad enough when a native causes trouble, so why do you import a criminal culture?


    There is absolutely no logic there, "we have problems with Muslims in Europe, the solution must be to bring more in!"

    There is something wrong with a group of people who get violently angry over a cartoon.
    Proud to be Germanic.

    Even though my ancestry is English, Germany is my favorite country.

    As expected, the Muslims raged out during the demo of "Pro NRW" and began to attack the police and by-passers with stones and flag staffs when the Muhammed cartoons were shown!

    Three policemen where injured as well as one passer-by. 30 Salafists (members of that Muslim group) were arrested by police then.

    These desert morons (and that´s the proper title for such people) have shown their true face and the news were all over the place. It was a good day for the rightwing movement in Germany.

    Freedoms go both ways, not just for homosexuals and pronography.

    Germany belongs to germans and they have the freedoms to behave and to show what they want in their own country.

    Otherwise when I am offended by mosques and make a riot then all german politician should call for the moslems to not built more mosques.


    But on the other hand, offending another religion is not very sophisticated. Two wrongs do not make a right.

    The German officials are not concern that a religion of barbaric is taking over Germany but yet the German officials find time to worry about native Germans trying to protect Germany.

    New incident!



    A new low was reached in the town of Bonn in Northrhine-Westphalia yesterday afternoon! A political demonstration of the patriot party "Pro NRW" was opposed by up to 600 radical Muslims and Salafists. The situation escalated again when Pro NRW showed new Mohammed caricatures: Salafists attacked the police with stones and knives and Police cars were attacked and heavily damaged! The whole quarter looked like a war area.

    29 policemen were injured, two of them severely by stabs with a knife! One female police officer is in a dangerous condition and needed an emergency surgery!

    Police arrested more than 100 Muslims and Salafists until now and established a homicide squad. A press conference will be held tomorrow.

    Offending another religion's followers isn't a good idea if you know what the outcome is going to be. In this case it's like waving the proverbial red flag in front of a bull and a violent reaction from the diaperheads was a foregone conclusion. Because of this public stunt a couple of dozen members of local law enforcement were injured, there was a riot, etc.

    That is perfectly understandable and right, Thusnelda. That Moslems engage in this sort of antisocial behaviour is outrageous. I hope more Germans are outraged by this wholly shocking incident. And I hope the injured police quickly and fully recover.
