The Saudi Arabians have withdrawn their ambassador to Denmark. Not much of a loss, you may think, but those free-spirited open-minded 21st Century Saudis have been influential in getting other Middle Eastern countries to boycott Danish products. Again, as the main Danish exports are bacon, Danish ham and lager, not much of a loss, you may think. But Arla products (including Lurpak butter) are a big export earner and at least one Saudi supermarket has cleared its shelves of their products.
Good grief. Modern Europeans don't believe in their own God anymore yet they're supposed to worship Islam's?
I hope Denmark holds firm. And I hope we and Denmark's other allies will do the right thing and explain to the Saudis that they need to pipe down and back off.
And if they don't, the Danes can always ban the major export of the Islamic world--young Moslems seeking entry to Europe. And if the Danes decide to clear their shelves of this import, the Moslem world will not be happy at all.
As for me, eating more Danish beer and bacon shouldn't be too much of a hardship to show support.
