Danes try to calm Muslim rage
International Herald Tribune ^ | 2/1/06 | Dan Bilefsky

Posted on 01/31/2006 3:46:12 PM PST by LibWhacker

The Danish government stepped up efforts Tuesday to curb the damage caused by the publication of cartoons in a Danish newspaper linking the Prophet Muhammad to terrorism.

But the moves failed to allay Muslim anger as retailers boycotted Danish goods in the Middle East and protesters in Gaza set fire to photos of Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. The economic fallout continued, with the French supermarket chain Carrefour announcing it was pulling Danish goods from its shelves in Arab countries.

A day after the Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, apologized for offending Muslims, the Danish foreign minister, Per Stig Moller, handed out a contrite statement about the cartoons on the sidelines of an Afghanistan fund-raising conference in London.

The statement, in the name of the Danish prime minister, said that he personally would not have depicted "religious symbols in this way." His remarks were also sent to Muslim embassies across the Arab world.

Can the Danish President tell the tide to stop?

How many Danish hams do they import into the Middle East anyway?

So, they pulled the Danish goods ~ like "pulled pork", perhaps, or maybe not.

Be just like these numbskulls in Arabia to fail to realize that barbeque and baby-back ribs come from PIGS.

Why don't the Danes invite them over for a pig roast and a few beers? That should settle their feathers.

You're welcome to, but isn't that phrase redundant?

Personally I'd rather see Mohammed with a sow's snout and a curly tail.

He's a terrorist as are his followers.

Looks like a pig, smells like a pig, oinks like a pig.

It's a pig

It is as redunant as "TROP" is nonsensical.

When I was at Vanderbilt we fed Osman from Turkey BBQ pork on his birthday. Half way through the meal, someone said "Pass the pork" and Osman looked down at his half eaten BBQ sandwich and said "This is pork?!?"

It was the Graduate Christian Fellowship. So I assume Osman was a Christian, but still he didn't eat pork.

We felt terrible about it. But after his initial shock, he seemed ok.

Oh - He's a Muslim and he's enraged
He beats his kids, keeps his wife in a cage

He prays to the east, he riots and bombs
He's got no sense of humour
He likes to saw off infidel heads
and really hates the Danes

I'm off to the supermarket to get some Danish imported dill havarti cheese and to a couple of liquor stores to see if they carry Cherry Kjafa (sp).

Let them go without the goods. It's their choice.

Should never have apologized for free speech. Islamofascists could care less about apologies from imbeciles. All they want to do is control or kill them.

OH PLEASE!!!

And when has anyone ever been able to "allay Muslim anger?!" What a crock!

There's only one way to "allay" it and that's to destroy it. These people aren't civil. They're politically motivated haters that believe that anyone non-muslim is beneath them. The Quran teaches that trash!

Hot damn, they did it again!

I can no longer keep up with the count of French surrenders anymore.

The only reason Muslims don't eat pigs is professional courtesy.
