While a lot of attention has been paid to the so-called 'Cartoon Jihad' with commentary on Islam and its views on depicting Mohammed; most if not all have missed what is really behind all this.
The cartoons themselves had long since been published. They even appeared in an Egyptian paper with little response. The fury that is now taking place was shown to be deliberately whipped up with joint calls by Imams to protest and the publication and distributions of fake insulting cartoons blamed on the Danish press.
But it's not about the cartoons. It's about Iran.
Iran is facing a showdown over its nuclear designs. That showdown is extremely likely to take place in the UN Security Council. How does this involve Denmark? Denmark is currently a member of the UN Security Council. In June, only four months away, Denmark will assume the presidency of the UN Security Council.
Among a roster of UN Security Council members like Russia, Greece, Quatar, France and Ghana; Denmark with a conservative ruling coalition and friendly ties to the US is far more likely to be a vote against Iran. That makes Denmark a target for Iran. The cartoon controversy stirred up by Iran has the agenda of turning attention away from Iran while putting the Danish government on the defensive against Islam and making it far less likely to take a position against a Muslim country.
Similar operations should be expected against the US and the UK, along the lines of the fake desecrated Korans, that will accuse UN Security Council members which oppose Iran of crimes disrespecting Islam along with worldwide Muslim protests.
