Sweden: EU Muslims scoff at Qaeda Sweden bounty

CAIRO – European Muslim leaders have scoffed at a bounty offered by Al-Qaeda in Iraq on the heads of a Swedish cartoonist and a reporter for publishing a cartoon lampooning Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him). “We don’t think like this at all. It is criminal to call to kill somebody,” Helena Benouda, chairwoman of the umbrella Muslim Council of Sweden, said in statements. “It is really unnecessary and it’s ugly, especially in the moment of Ramadan,” she added, referring to the Muslim holy fasting month.
