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!

Notice which way round the sexes are. How about Scandinavian boys and Arab girls?

Not that many arab girls burning embassies Don.

True, Sandmonkey, but I can't help a suspicion that if there WAS a website promoting Scandinavian boys dating Arab girls, there would be even more flag burnings, embassy burnings, boycotts, etc. It's one of those hot topics that seems to cause reactions.

arab men dating scandinavian women also touches some buttons, I might add.

As Danish-Egyptian stanup comedian once said, "every time I have a date with a hot Danish woman, they rerun ´Not Without my Daughter´ on television" :-)

I guess it has something to do with being protective of the female of the species. Sometimes it´s just lame.

Oops, that should read "Danish-Egyptian stanup comedian Omar Marzouk"

I like the idea, putting up my profile this moment.

I'm with Don... what reaction would the opposite cartoon get? (An Arab girl, a Scandinavian guy.)

My suspicion is that it'd make people angry. (No, I'm not talking about the Scandinavians.) Which underlines the point that, yes, Arab-Scandinavian dating is fun, but the problems go a lot deeper than that.

(Yes, Sandmonkey, Arab girls haven't been burning down embassies. But Arab men aren't usually subject to honor killings either.)

Unless you're trying to make a different point entirely -- that Arab embassy-burners need to calm down, i.e. get laid... so let's hook them up with hot Danish women! Two benefits at once! (Now that makes sense to me.)

The problem being, of course, most of us scandinavian women wouldn't sleep with one of *those* Arabs if our lives depended on it.

We want the nice ones. There's enough 'domestic' jerks in our own countries as it is, we don't need to import jerks too. We need to import the nice ones to offset the jerk populations here.

How about a website devoted to Jewish-Arab dating? Afterseeing your posts on the Lebanese bikini contests, I think me want some of that!!!

Hey...I'm an Arab girl, and I'd definitely be down for some Scandinavian men. Of course, how my parents would feel about that is a different story entirely.

Thanks Sandmonkey for the link to this great site!

well, I am probably THE ONE "Arab" man who has a real reason to burn embassies... an ex girl friend of mine was "conquered" by a Danish guy.. and the ass hole dumped her later. Thanks for the site SandMonkey :-)

Danish guys does it better - and they'll even draw you afterwards, upsetting your parents and the rest of the family... but it shure feels nice!
