Boycot Egypt!

Rantings of a sandmonkey has an interesting perspective on the boycot of Denmark over the Mohammed-drawings (hat tip: Renwaa). He found out that an Egyptian paper reprinted some of the drawings back in october. His suggestion?

Guess we will have to Boycott Egypt now as well, huh?

Now while the arab islamic population was going crazy over the outrage created by their government's media over these cartoons, their governments was benifitting from its people's distraction. The Saudi royal Family used it to distract its people from the outrage over the Hajj stampede. The Jordanian government used it to distract its people from their new minimum wage law demanded by their labor unions. The Syrian Government used it to create secterian division in Lebanon and change the focus on the Harriri murder. And, finally, the Egyptian government is using it to distract us while it passes through the new Judiciary reforms and Social Security Bill- which will cut over $300 million dollars in benefits to some of Egypt's poorest families. But, see, the people were not paying attention, because they were too busy defending the prophet by sending out millions of e-mails and SMS-messages, boycotting cheese and Lego and burning Butter and the danish Flag. Let's not even mention the idiots who went the usual route of "It's a jewish conspiracy", spouted the stupid argument about the Holocaust, or went on a diatribe with the old favorite "There is an organized campaign-headed by the west and the jews- to attack and discredit Islam, and we have to defend it". They proved, once again, that the arab world is retarded and deserves no better than its leaders.


Well put.

I think you actually have to produce something in order for a boycott to be possible:>)

Ah,,, something besides terrorists that is.

I havent double-checked this, but was told the entire GDP of the arab world - including the oil - is about equal to that of Finland.

Friggin Finland!

LOL! Finland. It's probably true. I know Iran makes rugs and dried fruit, but that's about it. Maybe Egypt makes hookas. How many hookas do dope heads need? The persian rugs are beautiful though, I must admit.

Here's an ominous move in Sweden:
The Swedish government has moved to shut down the website of a far-right political party's newspaper over cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

Am I allowed to simply boycott Islam?

Also, I'm going to buy some Lego products. I love those things.

well austria just made hypocrits of europeans defending the cartoons as free speech by sentencing someone to three years in jail for holocaust denial. Thanks guys. The mullahs are shitting their robes laughing I am sure.

The decision for an Egyptian newspaper to reprint the cartoons is certainly a curious one, but you seem blissfully unaware of even the idea of context. At this point, it was already news and, unlike JP, the Egyptian paper in question probably wasn't known for bashing immigrants and Muslims. Nor is bigotry towards Muslims becoming increasingly commonplace and socially acceptable within Egypt. That's what this whole controversy is about, context.

But of course you people are too busy making lazy generalizations to worry about context.
