COPENHAGEN (AFP) - Six youths were arrested in Copenhagen for setting cars and dumpsters ablaze and throwing stones at police in a fifth night of riots in a predominantly immigrant area of the Danish capital, police said Friday.

“We’ve had six arrests so far. They’ve been charged with throwing stones at police and setting fires to cars and waste containers,” Chief Inspector Henrik Olesen of the Copenhagen police told AFP.

At least 11 cars were torched in various neighbourhoods of Copenhagen, and 10 others in the nearby town of Kokkedal.

On Thursday, 17 youths were arrested for rioting the previous night.

“We don’t know why they’re rioting. I think it’s because they’re bored. Some people say it’s because of the cartoons but that’s not my opinion,” Olesen said.

He was referring to the reprinting of a controversial cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed in 17 Danish newspapers on Wednesday.

The drawing, published in Denmark for the first time in 2005, sparked several months of angry protests in the Muslim world in 2006. It depicted the prophet with a turban resembling a bomb with a lit fuse.

Protests have flared up again in several Muslim countries including Kuwait and Pakistan following the reprinting. The Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas also condemned the publication.

The caricature was reprinted this week after Danish police uncovered a plot to kill the cartoonist.

Three people were arrested for planning the murder, including two Tunisians who have lived in Denmark for more than seven years and whom Denmark has decided to expel without a trial.

That decision has been heavily criticized by human rights associations and some politicians and legal experts in Denmark.

Danes clash on web in Prophet row

The controversy in Denmark over the reprinting of one of the 12 cartoons satirising the Prophet Muhammad this week has triggered an unusual dialogue on social networking group Facebook, writes the BBC’s religious affairs correspondent Frances Harrison.

The row began with Tuesday’s arrests of three Muslims in Denmark said by the intelligence services to be plotting to kill one of the cartoonists.

All the major Danish newspapers next day rallied round their colleague, reprinting his drawing of the Prophet Muhammad with a bomb in his turban as a sign of solidarity.

But now young Danish student Anders Boetter says he has decided to start a Facebook site called Sorry Muhammad to apologise to Muslims on behalf of ordinary Danes and also give them a voice in the controversy over the row……

Within six hours a rival network group appeared called No Need to Apologise to Muhammad.

“This is a mockery of freedom of speech and to me it doesn’t matter what religion you have; you should be tolerant towards Danish freedom of speech,” writes Tanya Kortgaard.

“I think it’s fantastic that most of the newspapers in this country have shown that in Denmark we are not giving in to death threats,” says Gar Field.

Anders Kunze Juul-Dam, another group member, argues: “I think there’s a tendency to believe that the most fundamental norms and values of Danish society are open for debate - they’re not. If you don’t like the smell in the bakery then get out of here. Nobody is forced to be in Denmark - neither immigrants nor Danes. If you want to be here then you have to adapt.”……

    I guess the leaders are happy. Oh, but I’m sure they are pretending to be shocked and sad. Ya, right.

    They know the formula and it’s working well: bring in immigrants that have nothing in common with your citizens, then watch the immigrants lash out and destroy things.

    tried and true formula guaranteed to work every time,everywhere, but we must not forget the most important ingredient, make sure that the citizens’ rights and entitlements are trampled on and withdrawn so that the backlash will be directed at the immigrants and/or illegal alliens. keep the action on the lower level to allow the evil manipulators all the latitude to put the screws to ALL the “underlings”. the rescipe is so perfect , if it was one for food,betty crocker would be proud to claim it as her own.

    In Denmark, the Muslims are trying to stop free speech. In America, La Raza and other hispanic groups are also trying to stop free speech. They know that if they can pull this off, there is no collective group to bring those who oppose them together, therefore no voices will be heard to defeat them. Then they are free to spew their hatred. Our right to free speech is the same right that allows them to attack us. They must remember that if our rights to free speech are denied, theirs will be also.

    Watchdog,

    I thought the same thing about the media. I have seen NOTHING about
    these riots. Where is the media? I have not seen it in print or on
    live TV news.

    What, have they been dhimmied? They are afraid to say anything for fear
    it might start more Muslim backlash?

    It’s only a matter of time over here. Yea, why has the Lamestream Media not mentioned this over here?
