Rohde: Daughter of Cartoonist sought out by 12 Men
A group of Moslem males have tried to get at the daughter of one of the 12 cartoonists who drew the cartoons of Muhammed at her school. The political spokesman of the Liberals, Jens Rohde, revealed this during an interview with TV-Avisen while explaining his and the Prime Minister's attack on the business community in Denmark, charging that they have put profits over Freedom of Speech.Not at school
Rohde says that the 12 cartoonists have had their lives overturned and are now living in hiding, after receiving several death threats.
"And a daughter of one of cartoonist was sought out by 12 Moslem males - they were looking to get to her. Fortunately she wasn't at school," Jens Rohde said.
Meting with Cartoonists
Later Thursday night, Jens Rohde told Ritzaus Bureau that he was told of this incident during a meeting with the cartoonists.
The Police Intelligence Service did not wish to comment on this.
The Police Intelligence Service is the branch of the police that provides protection for citizens deemed to be in danger.
Update: But dagbladet.no managed to get a comment from the Police Intelligence Service :(Dagbladet.no): En gruppe muslimske menn skal ha prøvd å få fatt i datteren til en av tegnerne bak de tolv karikaturene av profeten Muhammed som ble publisert i den danske avisen Jyllandsposten i fjor.
Det sier det danske partiet Venstres politiske leder Jens Rohde til dansk tv i kveld.
De tolv tegnerne skal ha fått snudd fullstendig opp ned på sine liv på grunn av raseriet tegningene deres har utløst. Rohde hevder 12 muslimske menn skal ha møtt opp på en skole for å få fatt i datteren til en av tegnerne.
- Heldgvis var hun ikke på skolen, sa Rohde til danske TV Avisen.
Venstre-lederen sier til nyhetsbyrået Ritzau at han fikk vite om episoden under et møte med noen karikaturtegnere. Dansk politi har ikke bekreftet opplysningene.[more at link above.]
[Rhode continues in an interview on Danish television:] we have 12 cartoonists in this country who have to live in hiding under protection, have had their lives turned around. The daughter of one of the cartoonists was sought out by 12 Moslem males at her school - they wanted to get at her. Luckily, she wasn't there, and these people [ the 12 cartoonists] now live with fatwas over their head. And this is where I think that all of us ought to back these people up and say that we don't want to allow this kind of thing to happen to our cartoonists - we need to back up their right to exercise their profession.
From the comments section:
" The daughter of one of the cartoonists was sought out by 12 Moslem males at her school - they wanted to get at her."
Is there any verification of this account? Any eyewitness? The account as presented is not sufficient.

No, there is no verification. But Jens Rohde is a known politician who would lose greatly if he lied and the cartoonists are available for interview through the Police Intelligence Service, so I don't see how this could not be true.
Yeah, call me a dumbass for trusting politicians, but they don't lie when it's easy to check their facts.

There is no proof that they meant any harm to her. God is allowing the world to change to Islam. It remain me of might France stakeing in fear because moslim woman are wearing the hijab what abrunch of chichen shit the french are. Now Begium want to ban the moslim woman from wearing the burqa because the begium people are strakeing in fear when they see one old moslim woman walk down the street wearing the burqa with her cane to help her walk.
If it's true, then what next? If it's not true, then what next? More of the same either way. So what next?
