Danish Muslim leaders on Thursday denounced an anti-immigration party for posting a cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad on its Web site. The posting came as Denmark tries to defuse brewing Muslim anger over a video showing youth members of the Danish People's Party mocking the prophet. The cartoon, showing Muhammad and his young wife Aisha, accompanied a review of a German book about the prophet's love life. The article was in the May issue of the Danish People's Party's magazine, which was posted on Wednesday. Danish Muslims saw it as a new provocation by the party, known for being highly critical of Islam. "It is disappointing that there are forces in Denmark that want to have a confrontation," said Abdul Wahid Petersen, a leading imam in Denmark.
