A Danish court on Thursday convicted a member of a radical Islamic group of making threats against the government and agitating against Jews, sentencing him to three months in prison. Fadi Abdullatif, spokesman for the Danish chapter of Hizb-ut-Tahrir, had spread leaflets urging Muslims to "eliminate" rulers that prevent them from joining the Iraq insurgency. Prosecutors said the leaflets constituted a direct threat to the government. Abdullatif also was found guilty of violating anti-racism laws for postings on the group's Web page encouraging the killings of Jews. It was not immediately clear if Abdullatif, who had pleaded not guilty to all charges, would appeal. Hizb-ut-Tahrir, founded half a century ago, wants to peacefully establish a Muslim state across the Middle East operating under religious laws in the Quran. It preaches that Western-style democracy is unacceptable.
