Sweden has now become the first European country to grant a visa to a Hamas minister since the group won control of the Palestinian Authority
nothing quite like "neutrality" is there....
If you remember, Denmark was the country whose newspapers published the cartoons making fun of the Prophet Muhammad. All hell broke loose, and Muslims the world over rioted over the cartoons. Boycotts and general mayhem ensued. Denmark stood their ground. So with that as a backdrop, how has Denmark's policy toward Islamic terrorism been affected?
Not one bit. You see, Denmark has troops in Iraq...530 to be exact. Not a lot, but hey...it's a small country. I'm sure they're doing something very important. In an interview with the Washington Times, Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the situation with the Muhammad cartoons "strengthened our resolve for the long haul" and the troops would stay. "It is clearly our intention to stay in Iraq as long as we are requested by the Iraqi government, as long as our presence is based on a U.N. mandate, and as long as we believe we can make a positive difference on the ground." How about that?
Finally...a European government that isn't giving into to the political correctness when it comes to Islamic terrorism. They have seen firsthand who the enemy is and what the followers of radical Islam are capable of. Despite the overwhelming unpopularity of the war in Iraq, they're not giving in.
So, if you can find one, hug a Dane. Not a great dane, though. A person. You get the idea.
