All Is Fair in Love and War

Queen Margrethe II in an Egyptian Night Club. Would I Lie to You?Here you have it, hot off the presses of the Egyptian newspaper Al Multaqa Al Dawly. Take that, you Danish ham-makers. We'll show you how clever our humor is. Make light of Mohammed, will you? Well, your monarch is a belly dancer, so there. And if that doesn't shame you, why we'll quit importing your food and start making our own for a change. Which we might be able to manage if we could find a goat -- besides Denmark, that is. Obviously someone has to be the goat. Your turn, Queenie!

Or, as The Sandmonkey put it:

You know, in terms of retaliatory humor, we-muslims and arabs- are way way behind. We are not imaginative in how we make fun of who makes fun of us. I mean, look at this picture of the Queen of Denmark. Oooh, Queen's head on the body of a belly dancer, that's funn...nahh...that's lame. And if it's supposed to be humiliating, it really isn't, because the Danes make fun of their queen all the time, and sometimes in more graphic ways than this. And when they do put her head on someone else's body, they make it look good and realistic. But then again, they probably use tools more advanced than scissors and glue.

The Danes will probably look at this and laugh, because, like, they have a sense of humor. No chips on their shoulders...
No chips yet, though there may be a few bits of shrapnel if the organizing troublemakers aren't put out of business by the Middle Eastern governments who are permitting their embassy burns and flag stompings.

You have to wonder: in the lands of taqiyya and kitman, what is this show covering up? What is the real deal? The "Arab Street" doesn't move about in frenzies of breaking and burning things without either orders to do so or permission to "channel their anger."

What's up here?

And the Danish reaction? Well, I asked around. I asked all my friends and colleagues here in Denmark.

Uhm... there isn't one.

I guess we won't be burning any embassies this week then.

Pity really. I have nothing planned this coming weekend.

But muslims DO have a sense of humor. They laugh whenever they are told to by their mullahs.

heheheheheheh!!! That's GOLD...PURE GOLD!! aww the poor souls, God love'em for trying.

Heard also of a competition in an Irani paper to choose best Holocaust cartoon and a newspaper in Azerbaijan publishing Jesus cartoons.

The poor things are just dying for some attention. Guess they'll be waiting for the "ZioChristian" West to start rioting for a lllooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time.

I keep hearing the faint voices of three or four Muslims who insist that we shouldn’t judge 1.2 billion Muslims by the outrageous acts of a few (hundred thousand) extremists. Oh, and the vast majority of imams (at least the ones who can and will speak). I’m perfectly willing to believe that 95% of Muslims just want to be left in peace to make a living and raise kids. Unfortunately, that still leaves approximately sixty million Muslims trying to destroy western civilization. So here’s my advice to the 95% of nice Muslims who just want to practice their peaceful religion: you stop the sixty million homicidal nutcases, or we will. We’re not going to sit around and be destroyed.

If someone offends my God, they have a great deal more to worry about than offending ME or making ME angry. And he doesn’t need me to defend him. As for Allah, and his "prophet" Mohammed, the Judeo-Christian sacred writings answer well enough:

Judges 6:29-31 They asked each other, “Who did this?” When they carefully investigated, they were told, “Gideon son of Joash did it.”
The men of the town demanded of Joash, “Bring out your son. He must die, because he has broken down Baal's altar and cut down the Asherah pole beside it.”
But Joash replied to the hostile crowd around him, “Are you going to plead Baal's cause? Are you trying to save him? Whoever fights for him shall be put to death by morning! If Baal really is a god, he can defend himself when someone breaks down his altar.”

The funny thing about muslims saying "don't judge us by what the extremists do" is that they are doing exactly the same. They judge everyone in Denmark by what one independant newspaper published. I'm danish, but I have nothing against muslims. The funny thing is though that ever since the muslim world reacted like this people are getting increasingly tired of them. In the end we might end up with an increase in racism because of something no dainsh citizen could/can do anything about. Regardless of what the muslim world insist we do or say... talk about stupidity....

I wholeheartedly endorse that depiction of my Queen! (and the iranian contest also) I am only saddened that the quality of it is so shabby because i'd be nice to pretend that Margrethe had a body like that - they should've used a picture of her when she was younger. But look at the dresses she wears on occasions and those puff-sleeves are not too far off the mark. :-)

Mikkel, Enough! (enough.typepad.com)

Angry Danish Blogger, also intensely commented the cartoon row thing.

Brilliant. I like that - good point about the whole sense of humour. Poor Muslims...they do try!
