The War on Pastries

TEHRAN, Iran - Iranians love Danish pastries, but when they look for the flaky dessert at the bakery they now have to ask for "Roses of the Prophet Muhammad."

Bakeries across the capital were covering up their ads for Danish pastries Thursday after the confectioners' union ordered the name change in retaliation for caricatures of the Muslim prophet published in a Danish newspaper.

If weeks of shooting each other, rioting, and burning statues of Ronald McDonald did little to satisfy the Muslim mobs; renaming pastry will probably have little effect.

Cartoons of Muhammad - bad
Naming a donut in his honor - good

Call me an infidel, but I think they should spend more time in schools learning how to properly construct a sentence, rather than coming up with Islam-themed baked goods.
