Imam demands Revenge for Mohammed Sketches A Muslim cleric in Denmark demands revenge for sketches of Mohammed published by daily newspaper Jyllands-Posten. "This infidel newspaper has deliberately provoked and insulted Muslims," said Imam Raed Hlayhel. "It is sacrilegious. Islam bans depictions of Mohammed." The newspaper asked for drawings of the prophet, after an author complained that nobody dared to illustrate his book on Mohammed. Twelve heeded the newspaper's call, and sent in drawings of the prophet, which were published in the newspaper. A spokesman for the paper described the drawings as an exercise of "freedom of expression." Hlayhel, however, said the newspaper had abused freedom with the sole objective of humiliating Muslims. "This kind of freedom cannot be tolerated," said Hlayhel. "Muslims will never accept this kind of humiliation." Hlayhel demanded that all of the illustrators be tracked down so their hands could be "struck off by the righteous sword of the Prophet." It is not the first time Hlayhel has created a stir. Last year, he said in a sermon during Friday prayer, that Danish women's behavior and dress invited rape.
