What is going on with the world!? From being a little country that most people had no idea where was situated, Denmark has become the target of millions of peoples anger!
A paper in Denmark was inconciderate enough to print cartoon pictures of the muslims profet Muhammed. And why on earth did they have to do that??? Yes, we have freedom of speech, but why do they have to offend people by it? The profet Muhammed is so holy to the muslims, why can't this particular paper respect that?
And now hell is breaking loose. Danish embassys are being burned down, the Danish flag and pictures of the Danish prime minister is being burned off - and death threats are made towards Danish people and Denmark.
I find this extremely disturbing!!
They misunderstand this whole country for having the same attitude towards the profet Muhammed that was printed in the paper - and that is not true. I cannot deny that there are prejudiced people in Denmark, but we are sure as hell a lot more people here, who respect other people regardless of color, religion and individual beliefs.
We are now being categorized as respectless and insulting people, because of this paper. Just as some people categorized muslims as terrorists after September 11th. Why can't we leave eachother be and find peace between us. We are all humans - and we all have equal rights in this world.
How can we contribute to this conflict? To make people of the muslim countries understand, that Denmark is not against their profet or religion. On the very contrary.
Oh, how I hate this... It smells like third world war boiling - and that scared me to death!
