Getting the Big picture

As if it wasn't bad enough that the majority of israeli flags being burned by palestinains in the West Bank were actually made in Israel (so much for disinvestment), the majority of the Iranian anti-semetic posters and campaign posters are made by israeli technology. This reminded me of something that made me laugh soo much in the past 2 weeks: The website www.no4denmark.com (which wa sthe first calling for a danish boycott and which is no longer online) was designed and built using PHP language, which, you guessed it, was invented by a danish guy. So much for the boycott, huh? No excuse me, I am going to eat some DANISH, and the iranians can kiss my ass.

lol,... this reminds me very much of the hidden trade between Israel and Arab states.

"Staff members at a Riyadh hospital got a surprise when they looked at the fine print on the paper cups they were using. Workers in a storeroom at a Dubai hospital were similarly shocked when they took a close look at the tags on a large shipment of uniforms, towels and sheets.

The labels said "Made in Israel," according to recent newspaper reports from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, both of which have laws that ban imports from the Jewish state."

Yeah... Unfortunately same thing happened for the UN trying to boycott oil from Iraq..

On another note. Iran has, as you already know, started a competition for caricatures depicturing the Holocaust to test the freedom og speech in the west. A Portuguese has decided to join - Augusto Cid has sent in a drawing of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad standing in Auschwitz telling us that the deaths have been caused by birdflu. Know the question is - will the iranian freedom og speech allow this portrait to be published.

Bets are on!

Oooo.. Getting a bigger picture..
There has been signs of support buying of Danish products - e.g. in the U.S.
Look at that, this whole thing might just turn out to be a good investment for Denmark. I mean an export rise of one percent in other countries is better than a 100% loss in muslim countries.

I wonder if that's why the prices for Danish Hawatii cheese has gone up to $8.5/lbs? Ok, that was an exageration, $8.47 ;) It used to be $6.50 -- or something. Way too pricy back then, now it's just ridiculous!

Hey sand monkey,
You forgot Bjarne Stroustrup, C++ inventor.
He is from Denmark too.
Now Muslims have to boycott literally everything.
