Don't Hate, Date!
One of my readers reportedly figured out this creative way to end the Danish-arab world cartoon-blood fued: He created a dating website to promote Scandinavian-Arab dating for the sake of world peace. Here is the creator's philosophy behind it: Dear People of the World,
We think it's downright silly to be arguing, burning embassies, boycotting Lego and killing each other over a series of silly cartoons. So we want to give a voice to the sane ones...those people like you who realize that we have more in common than different.
We ask you to show those idiot politicians and religious leaders that we can co-exist peacefully - by choosing to make friends with a funny foreigner today. Add your profile to Scandirabia.com and tell us why you'd like to be friends with someone different from you.
We figure that if we create just 100 pen-pals between people of different religions and cultures, the few hours it took to make this site was worth it. (And if we piss-off just ONE religious leader who says you shouldn't date someone of a different faith - wow, will we be happy!)So, in essence, they are encouraging all arabs to be daters, not haters. I can live with that! After all, Scandinavian women are hot! Check it out!
