    The Denmark government didnt cave into outcry over Muhhammed caricatures and chose to stay the hell out of it. I do think they have a responsibility to protect their citizens though. So they need to try and beef up security around them. Typical Muslim reaction followed.

    Sounds like the Salmon Rushdie incident all over again, except this time the Muslims are employing a boycott instead of calling for murder.

    No they seem to be doing both. You can have a boycott and call for the murder of people too. Come on its Islam. There's so many possibilities. :rolleyes:

    Well they do have every right to boycott. Peaceful protest is actually sort of a refreshing change in tone. According to the article no one has been hurt as a result of reciprocations, a boycott will probably be alot more effective than blowing up buildings.

    Sounds very peaceful. I guess for Islam that is.

    well and I read that in the leftwing Spiegel online. Even they say
    the Danish should not apologize, the newspaper was wrong in apolgizing
    Now I wait for them to print the pictures themselves.

    My freedom to make fun of religion = important freedom of speech.

    The Islamic Sharia is not law in Denmark and shouldnt be. So I think
    its important to support the Danes.

    In a selfless act I will buy some Faxe beer to support their economy. :halo:
