Frakking Danes: Islamic Cartoon Scuffle Timeline

How did it start? Why is it so big? Well, people are pissed...personally I wouldn't want images of my prophet depicted if that was considered sacriligie. But on the other hand, would any of the cartoonists/writers/editors have published a page knowing people would die.

Maybe they would've, freedom of the press right? When interesected with the freedom of the people, people die. I'm still not totally convinced this isn't part of a US psyops operation...but this newspaper is the biggest in Denmark.

  • November-December 2005:
    Danish Muslims travel throughout the Middle East to tell people about the cartoons and call for protest. They carry with them not only the published cartoons, but also a few others – even more offensive – that were sent to them by private Danish citizens.

    Oct. 14, 2005:
    Members of 16 Danish Muslim organizations condemn Jyllands-Posten, claiming the newspaper acted provocatively and insulted Muslim sensibilities.
  • CBC STORY: Muslims condemn 'insulting' pictures of prophet

    Oct. 12, 2005:
    The Palestinian representative in Denmark and ambassadors from 10 countries with Muslin populations send a letter to Fogh Rasmussen demanding a meeting with him and urging action against Jyllands-Posten. Fogh Rasmussen would later decline to meet with them.

    Sept. 30, 2005:
    Jyllands-Posten publishes 12 drawings of Muhammad, after asking cartoonists to send in satirical drawings of the prophet. One of the drawings depicts a Danish boy, named "Muhammad," writing in Arabic on a chalkboard: "Jyllands-Posten's journalists are a bunch of reactionary provocateurs." Flemming Rose, the paper's cultural editor, said the call for pictures was a reaction to the rising number of situations in which artists and writers censure themselves out of fear of radical Islamists.

    STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

    STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY By thefayth, BiNet USA President With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community. When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people. It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gen

    No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

    No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag (but people I knew said I did, so did "the news") By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always. My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other! My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only t
