Kuwaiti MPs Respond to Prophet Muhammad Caricatures in Europe: These Barking Dogs and Filthy Pigs Do Not Surprise Us

Following are excerpts from speeches by Kuwaiti MPs, aired on Al-Jazeera TV on January 30, 2006.

First Kuwaiti MP: When (Prophet Muhammad) is attacked by the dogs of the extreme right, who suckle from the breasts of Zionism, this causes him no harm.


These European perverts and their governments... What can you expect from nations that have descended so low that in their legislation, their governments, their parliaments, and their international conventions they welcome single sex marriage? This perversion has reached its peak in this sense.

To be honest, these barking dogs and filthy pigs do not surprise us. I use these terms because they suit them. These terms befit their vileness, despicability, filth, and impurity. You know this, because you have traveled to Europe and all these countries, and you have seen the essence of vileness itself, and how they have diverged from the teachings of Jesus, the same teachings that they preach.


Second Kuwaiti MP: We should not be surprised if some journalist or newspaper distorts the image of Islam. But what does surprise us is that the [Danish] prime minister says this is freedom [of expression]. If freedom there reaches such a degree, they should consider the bombings that take place to be freedom as well.
