Norway threatened by Muslim boycott

An international association of Muslim clergy have threatened to boycott products from Norway and Denmark, after Nordic media have published drawings of the Prophet Muhammed.

The warning was made in a statement issued in Cairo on Saturday:

– The International Union of Muslim Clergy asks the leaders of Norway and Denmark to show a firm stand against the continuing attacks on the Muslim nation and the Prophet.

– If not, the Union will be forced to urge millions of Muslims all over the world to boycott Danish and Norwegian products, said the group, which is headed by the Egyptian Yusef al-Quardawi.

The Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in September last year published a series of drawings made by artists of how they believed the prophet Muhammed had looked.

The drawings were in January also published by the Norwegian monthly Magazinet.
