Thread Name: BS: Islamic Truth
Subject: RE: BS: Islamic Truth
Today, there was an "Islam conference" in Germany (scheduled since months, BTW) with participants from several Muslim organisations, prominent individual Muslims and government representatives like the minister for internal affairs and security. All participants (Muslim or not) have called for the opera to be continued. They'd like to see it together.

It was an unfortunate decision based upon a misunderstanding between two main actors. But it shows the fear that the physical violence threats of a tiny number of Muslims have triggered.

After the Denmark cartoon event, the German carnivalists have decided not to tell any jokes about Muslims, and they usually tell jokes about anyone including of course the local bishop or the pope.
