Danish Embassy Trauma - Recations!
Yazan my friend, we all know it's not the population of syria that have acted this way. Only the government could pull a thing like this. We will tell people of all the wonderful things we saw in syria .... And the boys and i will not forget the syria we saw...
Jonas is one of 4 danish CouchSurfers stayed at my place for almost a week. about 2 months ago. That's after the drawings were initially published. we talked about it back then, and we had an understanding that it was strictly a Danish inner affair and were handled that way, through the danish media between the danish ppl...
Now it's an international crisis.. Who's responsible for that?!
Now it's a political nightmare for Syria... at least I KNOW who's responsible for this.
74 of the ppl arrested in the Danish consulate and church attacks in Ashrafieh, Beirut are SYRIANS. While only 34 are Lebanese.
I honestly donno what to say.
I was there yesterday, I had to see the "conflict zone".
What was not aired in the news was that the first floor of the embassy complex is a SYRIAN Company "Debbane", and the last floor is an actual residence!
No, they were not attcking Danish or European "out of line" freedom of speech, they were not even taking revenge for the prophet, They were attacking the heart of Syria. The civilised idea of Syria.
These ppl are criminals, And the ones RESPONSIBLE for letting them unleashed are CRIMINALS too...
WHY DIDN'T WE SEE ANYONE IN HANDCUFFS YET?!????! I guess jonas answered this question...
I don't care how SACRED or IMPORTANT this symbol is, There is NOTHING that can justify these acts. NOTHING.
A living soul is more important than all the ones that are dead.. because a living soul still has the ability and chance to innovate and create.... so, again... Yes, We Have The Right to Caricature God.
Just as YOU have the right not to buy my cartoons...
I wanna applaud the Syrian blogsphere for their reaction...

Yesturday the danish consulate in Beirut were set on fire and a couple of days ago the danish embassy in Damaskus were set on fire, in Afganistan a guy were killed during a demonstration. The situation in Denmark is tense aswell, most danish people didn't agree with Jyllandsposten, but the common man on the street is getting more and more confused as the media is covering the developement. I hope that in the long run we will learn to understand the cultural and religious diversity that modern societies consist of, but in order to reach that goal we are obliged to move towards dialog and understanding rather than strenghening borders.
Jon, another one of the "boys"... I Have to agree with u...
