The caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed that were printed in a Danish newspaper were first published on September 30, 2005.
Which means that they first came out 4 months and 5 days ago, looking back from today. Suddenly, 4 months later, the same caricatures showed up in certain European newspapers. The provocations, which were notched up step by step, wound up in the murder yesterday of a priest in Trabzon. Now, I don't give much credit to conspiracy theories normally, but this doesn't prevent me from thinking that in real life, there is a place for conspiracies.
So now I am wondering, who is behind this reappearance of these caricatures in the Western press? Does it not seem strange to you that Muslims have just now, 4 months down the line, realized what these caricatures meant? And is it a simple coincidence that the murder of a Christian priest, in the doorway of a church where people have prayed in peace for the past 132 years, has not taken place in a much more conservative country, but in a Muslim country praised for its secularity? The capture of the suspects in this murder ought to be a matter of honor for the Turkish Republic. Because this act did not just target a priest in a church in Trabzon. The bullets which were fired targeted our peace, our country's respect, and the tolerance we all carry for members of other religions.
