Buy Danish

I still didn't want to take the Danish boycott matter too seriously. But after the Syrians torched a 3rd embassy, I thought I must hang up my Buy Danish logo.

I really don't think it was a coincidence that two embassies can be allowed to burn in Syria, and the third one would be torched by its followers in Lebanon. This was the perfect opportunity for Syria to dispel the gathering public opinion against itself, while at the same time rally Arab muslim public opinion against a threatening foreign enemy: European countries whose press allowed the publication of offensive cartoons, however stupid this sounds.

How twisted can a dictator be?

Don't forget that the "lebanese" demonstrators-who mots of them were syrian and palestinian- attacked the christian neighbourhood hoping to start secterian strife. Bisho would love nothing but to reignite secterianism in Lebanon to disspell their unity and claim the need for syrian presence in lebanon. Ibn mara weskhah!

Did you see his interview with Christianne Amanpour over the Harriri assassination? It was hilarious, I recommend you seen it.
