Danish boycott.

Postby AAAhmed46 » Sat Feb 04, 2006 6:15 am

By now you probably know about the pictures the danish newspaper printed right?

Yeah, boycotts are pretty.....extreme.

But i was offended when i saw those.

Very offended.

Though christianity is often harped on BADLY by the media. That doesnt mean it's right. Infact, any muslims who is properly educated in islam and actually delves into the meanings would shake his head at any bad drawing or depiction of jesus.
Those artists knew full well just how sensitive muslims are right now, knew full well how they would react, if they knew what they were doing.

That said, i think muslims really have made fools of themselves.


Again.

I don't buy anything Danish except baby back ribs... quess I can give them up.

I'm not much into religion or political correctness, but sounds to me like someone crossed the line.

I understand the Danes are also claiming a Canadian Island in the North. Sounds like they are out to offend everyone.

It's very much like a right-to-lifer bombing an abortion clinic, or a PETA person assassinating the CEO of a surgical supply company.

Bingo!

Idiots protesting idiots. They deserve each other.

It wouldn't hurt to borrow from the book of Ghandi or MLK.

IM surprised at how....understanding people are here.

On bullshido, people are saying my religion is evil that: "Islam is the wing chun of religions" and wing chun doesnt get treated well at bullshido.

Breaking news:
Danish embassy in Libanon is under attack, on fire.

Wow, this isnt helping our image.

Again making fools of ourselves......
EDIT: Never mind, the fire hose is being used by the DEMONSTRATORS.

No no. You had it right the first time with the part about the demonstrators - worldwide - making fools out of themselves.

I wonder if such a reaction would have happened prior to the war in iraq or 9/11?

The atmosphere was already very electric i guess.

Hmm, thats a good question marcus.


Assuming they did, i personally doubt the reaction would be this bad.

Probably have alot of noise, but i dont think people were as on edge as they are now.
