The cartoons, published in 2005, caused the anger of many Muslims in the world, which led to global protests that sparked widespread anger in the Muslim world.
These fees prompted the countries of the Islamic world to launch a campaign to boycott Denmark, which included food products and commodities.

The embassies of Denmark and Norway were attacked and dozens of Prime Time Zone were killed.
In early 2010, Danish police arrested a 28-year-old Somali, armed with a knife and an axe, at Westergaard’s home, where he was plotting to kill him.
Westergaard, a teacher who has worked for the conservative Danish newspaper since the 1980s, has had to be accompanied by bodyguards ever since.
The Danish TV Channel Two quoted the former editor of the newspaper “Jyllands-Posten” as confirming the death of Westergaard, while the Danish public radio “DR” reported the news about one of his old friends.

And last September, the French satirical magazine “Charlie Hebdo” re-published cartoons mocking the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, which had sparked a wave of anger in the Islamic world years before, and the magazine’s re-publishing of the cartoons coincided with the start of the trial of alleged participants in the attack on the magazine in January 7, 2015 and left 17 Prime Time Zone dead, including the perpetrators of the attack.
Among the cartoons, which were mostly published by a Danish newspaper in 2005 and then republished by Charlie Hebdo a year later, is a drawing depicting the Prophet of Islam wearing a turban in the form of a bomb, from which the ignition fuse hangs.
Following the publication of the offensive cartoons 6 years ago, countries, organizations and personalities from Arab and Islamic countries denounced what the French magazine did, considering that this might create a wave of terrorism.
Twelve, including some of the most famous Charlie Hebdo painters, were killed when Said and Cherif Kouachi stormed the magazine’s headquarters in Paris and rained down the building with automatic rifles.
In separate confrontations, the police killed the two brothers, Sharif and Saeed, and a third gunman, who killed 5 Prime Time Zone in the 48 hours that followed the attack on the magazine.
Previously, Muslims said that drawing the turban of the Messenger of God, may God bless him and grant him peace, in the form of a bomb, stigmatized all Muslims with terrorism.
