From Eric Dondero: Dusseldorf-City in Germany Known for Offending Islam Target of Attack

Though, there is no motive released yet for the attempted bombings from police officials, Dusseldorf has a large Muslim community that frequently clashes with local Germans.

The city hosts the annual Carnival of Rolling Caricatures (photos above). In recent years, the city has come under great criticism from groups on the left for allowing parade floats of what are considered offensive depictions of Muhammed. The German Board of Muslims criticized the “presentation of religious leaders Islam"(Source: Petaflop.de)[More]

I think those floats are cute, but that's just me.
