Islamophobia [url]

A crowd of about 200 people pelted the Austrian Embassy in Tehran with petrol bombs and stones on Monday to protest against the publication of satirical cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad in European newspapers.

The protesters, chanting "God is Greatest" and "Europe, Europe, shame on you", smashed all the diplomatic mission's windows with stones and then tried to hurl petrol bombs inside.

The demonstration was announced in advance and organized by members of the official Basij militia, a volunteer force affiliated to the hardline Revolutionary Guards

So, is this a way to attempt to scare UN members to not vote for sanctions? Is this the beginning of a trend where if Muslims are upset they torch international buildings? This is like us sending the National Guard to burn down an embassy in Washington, I mean, is this not an act of war?

Iran has also cut off economic ties with Denmark, which each year exports 280 million dollars in goods. This will not benefit either country i am sure. There has yet to be any remarks from other Islamic nations other than fear of Islamophobia in the west.

All of this, over a cartoon.....this is a sad world we live in no matter what religion you are, or are not.
