Wishing our Danish friends well

9 posts in this topic

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this topic. It can be moved elsewhere, if necessary.

I know that this board is full of admirers of the Danish ballet, as well as a few occasional posters who live in Denmark. I wanted my Danish friends & the dancers who I so admire to know that they are in my thoughts during these difficult days. I hope that everybody is 'weathering the storm' allright & staying safe.

Natalia: I must have missed something; to what are you referring?

Giannina,

I just finished reading an article in the Washington Post on the topic, and I'm going to jump in.

Several Danish political cartoonists used charicatures of Muhammad; they were published in Danish newspapers and reprinted elsewhere in the West. Images of Muhammad are forbidden under Islamic law. There has been outrage expressed within the Muslim community worldwide, with protests that have turned violent, as well as threats against the cartoonists and the Danish nation.

Wonder what they'd think of "Abdallah?" :thanks: (Seriously, it's a lovely sentiment, Natalia.)

Oh, I see. I've been reading about that too. I thought it was something within the ballet company. Thank you.

I hope this doesn't sound flippant--But to help the Danes 'weather the storm' I bought my 3 year old grandson some Lego's today.....I read somewhere about sanctions against Danish products in the middle east.

Just a note that we holding strictly to board policy against discussing politics and religion, unless they have direct relevance to ballet.

In my post above, I tried to summarize the situation factually in response to a specific question. If anyone has feedback on whether or how this should be edited, please PM me, or if you don't have PM privileges yet, use the "Contact Us" link at the top of each page.

This post generated some very interesting comments, enough to warrant a thread of its own. I've moved them here.
