Hamas condemns Danish daily for insulting cartoons
font size    

The Islamic Resistance Movement ( Hamas) condemned on Monday a Danish daily for publishing cartoons considered insulting Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

In a press statement sent to reporters, Hamas, who won the Jan. 25 legislative elections, demanded all Islamic nations to boycott Danish products, asserting that the Arab and Islamic countries have to carry out steps to stop such acts.

The statement said 12 drawings published on Sept. 30 by the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten included one showing prophet Muhammad wearing a turban shaped as a bomb with a burning fuse.

Another portrayed him wearing a bushy gray beard and holding a sword, with his eyes covered by a black rectangle.

The group said the paper insulted Islam and it showed the official Danish position which neglected Muslims' feelings.

The paper insisted on not apologizing.

Meanwhile, masked Palestinian gunmen stormed and shut down the EU office in Gaza to protest the publication of the cartoons, according to witnesses.
