Cartoon Crisis: Iran Renames Danish Pastries
Iran has decided to rename Danish pastries "Mohammedan" pastry - a new twist in the crisis which has triggered protest by Muslims throughout the world against cartoons of Mohammed first published in Denmark.

Iran has recalled its ambassador from Copenhagen, and on Tuesday announced a halt to all imports of Danish products. Demonstrators in Tehran on Tuesday attacked the Danish embassy with stones and petrol bombs, the second such assault in two days.

Denmark says it holds the Iranian authorities responsible for the embassy attacks.

12. The article is satire
Edited on Tue Feb-07-06 05:13 PM by TechBear_Seattle
To a devout Muslim, much less a fanatical zealot Muslim, naming food "mohammedan" would be blasphemous. Can you imagine the Southern Baptist Association demanding that Cheese Nips be renamed "Christ Crackers?" That would be almost as offensive as "Mohammedan pastry" :spank:

And anyway, "mohammedan" is also a racist (or would it be religionist?) slur. It would be like the Anti-Defamation League trying to sell ... I'll shut up now, I don't want to get banned.
