Denmark is feeling Islamic outrage over newspaper cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
Angered by the drawings, masked Palestinian gunmen briefly took over a European Union office in Gaza on Monday. Islamists in Bahrain urged street

snubbed Danish products.

Well there we have it, a concerted effort on the part of islamic nations to silence the freedom of expression in the West. Yet again the dominos
fall, yet again another freedom of the west is curtailed by the strident demands of Islam. Will we next get protests over the selling of pork, or some
other "western offence".
Note the silence of such nations when their own papers make anti western, anti Jewish, or anti christian propaganda.
Seems you are free to express yourself in the west except in the context of Islam.
Bullies silence their detractors by shouting louder and causing trouble until their demands are followed. The same occurs with bullying nations, may
Denmark have the courage to stand on its principles instead of bowing to islamic pressure.
I cannot find copies of these pictures on the net, I wonder if everyone is too scared to post them?
