Former U.S. President Bill Clinton Calls For Conviction Of Mohammed Cartoon Publishers

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton has called for European countries to convict the publishers of the Prophet Mohammed cartoons:

Daily Times—Former US president Bill Clinton on Friday condemned the publication of Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) caricatures by European newspapers and urged countries concerned to convict the publishers.

Talking to reporters after meeting Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz in Islamabad, Clinton said he disagreed with the caricatures and that the publication was against religious and ethical norms. Clinton said he had no objection to peaceful demonstrations being held worldwide, but this was not the time for violence. He said it was the time to promote inter-faith harmony and stand together on the issue. ...

Who let Bill out?

Update:

I looked at a video here (realplayer) and I didn't hear Clinton calling for the conviction of the publishers. It wasn't a complete recording of the press conference, but still, he isn't heard calling for the conviction of publishers.

Looks like the Daily Times may have really screwed up the translation after all. If so, my apologies to Jawa Report readers and former President Clinton.
