IRIB: "Arab League to blockade [sic] Denmark"

That's what it says, but it seems they don't quite have a firm command of the word "blockade." From Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting:
The Arab League announced that the alliance will adopt a common policy against those Scandinavian countries which permit the printing of blasphemous articles against Islam and Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).

The Arab League is currently consulting member states to adopt a strategy against Scandinavian states whose press publish sacrilegious articles against Islam under the pretext of freedom of expression.
We all know it was just a pretext.
"The strategy will range from political and economic punitive measures against Scandinavian nations. The Arab League is also keen on coordinating its strategy with the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) to take effective steps to force the Scandinavian states to abide by international law, and observe the prerequisite for co-existence in the international community which calls for respecting other religions," Arab League official said in Algiers.
The references to "respecting other religions" are richly ironic.
