Lebanon’s Minister of Tradition tweeted right this moment that Lebanon will droop cultural coordination with Denmark and Sweden and their corresponding embassies in Beirut. The choice comes after the Koran burnings that passed off in each nations, which angered numerous Muslims world wide.
It’s a hasty determination should you ask me, however an enchancment from 2006 when protesters set hearth to the Denmark embassy in Beirut. It’s comprehensible that burning Islam’s holy ebook is insulting and disrespectful to many, and I actually imagine it’s a silly and reckless act, however it’s occurring in Denmark & Sweden the place the legal guidelines permits such actions.
I discussed the choice is hasty as a result of free speech legal guidelines exist all the world over, particularly in Europe, and we are able to’t go round suspending cultural ties simply because we don’t agree with a rustic’s legal guidelines. So long as the cultural coordinations are performed respectfully, we should always give attention to engaged on what enriches either side and interact in discussing cultural variations to know them higher.
