Is That A Bomb In Your Turban, ... Or Are You Just Muslim?

Published on Sep 2, 2013

Ahmed Akkari was a controversial radical Muslim religious leader, who helped stoke worldwide anger against Danish cartoons showing Mohammed with a bomb in his turban. Now he has undergone an equally radical transformation of tolerance. Seven and a half years after the cartoons controversy, the former imam says the drawings were justified as free expression.

Extremists Run All The Mosques

"– The truth is that there is not a single mosque or Muslim organization in Denmark that is not run by Islamists. As soon as you enter the house of the believers, you are met with Islamism whether you want it or not. As soon as you become a devoted Muslim, you are infected by extremism, says Ahmed Akkari."

Finally he is there – on the podium of The Free Press Society. It is half past seven PM, Thursday, August 22, 2013, as the former Islamicist imam

A tiny man with more than a hundred deaths and the burning of two Danish embassies on his conscience.
– Thank you for inviting me. I don’t know if I deserve all this, but perhaps my journey through life may be of use to you, says Ahmed Akkari as he timidly surveys the packed hall in the heart of Copenhagen.

Since ex-Islamist Ahmed Akkari came out of the closet three weeks ago, he has been the man of the hour. On television shows, in newspaper articles and on radio, he has tried to explain what has happened to him. He went from being a hardened and fierce Islamicist to a kindly and thoughtful person, filled with love and gratitude for Denmark.
