Six Danish F-16s have joined the international effort to enforce the no-fly zone over Libya, though none have yet fired missiles. Cearly, an anti-Islamic conspiracy is at work:
Libya’s national TV station this morning reported that Sunday’s attack on Gaddafi’s headquarters in Tripoli was controlled by Denmark, reports the BBC.[…]
“The fact that Denmark, which has led a campaign against Islam and Muslims for years with its blasphemous caricatures of Mohammed, is leading the bombings, shows that the aggression is a crusade against the Muslim people, including the Libyan people, with the goal being to terrorise Muslims and to wipe out Islam.”
They should have plenty more material to work with if NATO eventually takes over coordination of the no-fly zone effort. Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen was prime minister of Denmark during the original cartoon controversy.
