Freedom Fries, Anyone?


Iran Renames Danish Pastries - Yahoo! News

TEHRAN, Iran - Iranians love Danish pastries, but when they look for
the flaky dessert at the bakery they now have to ask for "Roses of the
Prophet Muhammad."

...

"Given the insults by Danish newspapers against the prophet, as of
now the name of Danish pastries will give way to 'Rose of Muhammad'
pastries," the union said in its order.


"This is a punishment for those who started misusing freedom of
expression to insult the sanctities of Islam," said Ahmad Mahmoudi, a
cake shop owner in northern Tehran.


Funny, we copy their ruthless, yet hapless dictator, and now they copy our pointless response to France and freedom fries. It may not be democracy, but we're spreading something.....
