Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

Denmark and Muslims

Good morning. Because the Danish government will not act against a newspaper, or apologize for the satirical cartoon it published, Libya has closed its embassy in Copenhagen. Some other Muslims are deeply offended. Boycotts are talked about. This is serious. Main news for this Monday morning.

"Lybia" - I’m sort of afraid to ask, but where’s that??

Sorry, I meant Libya. Thanks.

Yea, the Danish paper wimped out...typically Euro. And they expect the Arabs to respect them...fat chance.

What do the Danish sell to Islamic nations? I’ll bet Danish businesses are quaking in their boots. . .

Danes are pretty independent people. Read about the history of Nazi occupation in World War II for a primer on how to engage in passive resistance.

PineKnot...Please try to at least read something before you comment. Arla Foods is a large Danish-owned business that sells dairy goods in the Middle East. I believe they have over 1,000 employees in the Middle East and sell millions of dollars worth of goods each year.

At least, they did...After this incident, the company may be in trouble.

I assumed that Peter was joking when he called this serious stuff.

I would apologize to libya only after they apologized for the Lockerbie plane crash. I realize they paid compensation but I don't recall an apology.
