Danish/American, I read a blurb in the newspaper where Denmark is launching a public relations project to "repair" their "tarnished image." Do you have any more details on that? I don't think Denmark needs to work on their image; they did nothing wrong!! Shouldn't those who have been wreaking havoc on Danish society be the ones to worry about THEIR "image?" Did that Imam Laban ever apologize for the fake cartoons which caused so much death and destruction?

I can relate to how you feel because my mother was born and raised in France. She sat in front of the tv and cried while Paris was on fire for weeks last November. I felt so helpless to comfort her. She lived in Aulnay sois Bois, one of the suburbs of Paris which was hard hit. It must be hard to see the country of your birth descend into such chaos. I pray that we don't ever have to live through a similar thing in the U.S. But, with our politicians and our media and other elites, sometimes I'm not sure.
