Hamas 'Denmark must apologize to Muslims'

www.presstv.ir - 13 February 2008

Hamas has called on Danish officials to apologize to the Muslim world for reprinting blasphemous cartoons of the Prophet of Islam (PBUH). Hamas has denounced Danish newspapers, saying the publication of the cartoon was an 'offense to the feelings of tens of millions of Muslims.'

"We call for the trial of those responsible for publishing these drawings in the Danish newspapers," Hamas said on Thursday.

Denmark's newspapers reprinted an offensive cartoon of the Prophet of Islam on Wednesday.

The caricature, which published in September 2005 by the Jyllands-Posten daily, sparked uproar in the Muslim world.
