Danes Leading the way again
According to Danish newspaper Berlingske Tidende, the poster in question featured the Kaaba shrine with the text "Stupid stone". A poster with a Jewish man wearing a typical Jewish head covering had the inscription "Stupid skullcap".
BT quotes the Tiergarten press release as saying: Muslims in Europe must accept that they can't censure an exhibition in a gallery.
A Berlin gallery has temporarily closed an exhibition of satirical works by a group of Danish artists after six Muslim youths threatened violence unless one of the posters depicting the Kaaba shrine in Mecca was removed, it said on Thursday.
