Denmark is taking heat from the worldwide Muslim community right now, due to a charicature of Mohammed that appeared in one of their newspapers. Some Muslim countries have gone so far as to recall their ambassadors from Denmark in protest, and many Muslim countries are boycotting Danish products.
We in the West need to clearly voice our support for freedom of speech and expression, and at the same time unanimously make clear to the Muslim world that, while we respect everyone's right to practice their own religion, we consider far, far, far more important the freedoms that our societies have fought so dearly to attain.
That said, I'm going to do two things today:
1)Make 2-3 purchases of Danish products online
2)Ask everyone who reads this to do the same
My personal opinion is that pacifism and appeasement have no place in dealing with the global intifada whose goal is the establishment of sharia worldwide.
I know, I know, this has nothing to do with search marketing - but it will once I start an SEM campaign targeted to Muslim states and whose goal is to educate Muslims as to their general lack of tolerance.
Don't get me wrong - the Western world and Christianity were equally restrictive and close-minded just a couple hundred years ago, but fortunately for us we've made the giant leap of understanding the compounding benefits of individual liberty and freedom of speech.
