At the Volokh Conspiracy, Jim Lindgren may be onto something as he analyzes the writing on one of the fake Mohammed cartoons. He poses a pertinent hypothesis:
These extra three cartoons were presented as evidence of what non-Muslim Danes thought of Muslims, but what if all the cartoons were created by Muslims themselves, just to garner sympathy or to inflame anti-western sentiment? The pig “cartoon” has already been shown to be a hoax, though the perpetrator of the hoax has not been determined.

Maybe the manner in which the letters in the “demon pedophile” cartoon were written would reveal whether they were most likely written by someone who first learned to write in Arabic.

Go see what you think of his analysis. The cartoon in question is here.
