Cartoonist's daughter sought

Here is a link, but I'll repost the article below:

Caricaturist's daughter sought

The daughter of one of the artists behind one of the controversial newspaper caricatures of the prophet Mohammed was sought out at her school by twelve Muslim men, a leading Danish politician claims.

Jens Rohde, political chairman of the prime minister's Liberal Party, made this claim during a debate program on Danish television on Thursday evening.

The twelve cartoonists are now in hiding after receiving death threats.

"And a daughter of one of the artists was sought out by twelve Muslim men at a school, they wanted to get hold of this daughter. Luckily she was not at school," Rohde said.

Rohde told Danish news agency Ritzau that he received this information from a meeting with the artists.

I'm surprised that I have not seen this on the main news servers and shows. I get the errie feeling that the mainstream media wants to put out the impression that the cartoon issue is finished.

They can try and tell that to the cartoonist who was lucky enough that his child was not at school. I shudder to think what may have happened if she had been there.

I thank the Lord for her safety.
