COPENHAGEN, Denmark -- A Danish pizzeria owner has been jailed for refusing to serve French and German tourists in protest of their countries' opposition to the U.S.-led war in Iraq.

A Danish court found the owner, Aage Bjerre, guilty of discrimination and fined him $900. He refused to pay, and will serve an eight-day sentence.

He told The Associated Press that eight days "is a small price to pay" compared to those who serve in Iraq.

Germans and French were barred from the pizzeria starting in February 2003.

The pizzamaker said he has received hundreds of fan letters from the United States, but had to sell the pizzeria after repeated vandalism and a large drop in sales.

Not the smartest choice businesswise, but still Patriotic none the less :pat:


I guess they dont have the right to refuse service to anyone in Denmark?

There is an example of stupid things to do, mixing personnal political opinions an business, that will teach him a lesson. By the way somebody had and still have to do the dirty jobs in this world and the USA are doing one in Irak, sound that Canada will start doing one in Afghanistan in January 2006.

Does a TWF member own that pizza joint? The same guy that owns a vette in california? :lol:
No, you have that a little twisted. A Californian would sell to Iraqis, Saudis, French, and anyone else that opposes the war, but he wouldn't sell to Americans or those that support the war.

As for people supporting war in Canada it is mostly Albertans and beleive me they are the richest canadian citizens in Canada and they got the wisest governement in Canada ( beleive it or not they are dept free and even have a provincial fond and the lowest tax rate in Canada ) and they supported a participation with the USA in the present Iraqi war.... As for the educated/uneducated people it doesn't equal with intelligence and/or wisdom. It is easy to see how wise, intelligent an educated somebody is when he put is pride in showing the world is material acquisitions...

Because those are usually the people FIGHTING the [email protected] war too! You don't see any, hardly any, rich little debutaunts or the male equivalents fighting in the Armed Forces now do you? And if you do, like the mayor of Chicago's son (I think) who joined the Army made NATIONAL HEADLINES! And that guy from the Cardinals who died as an Army Ranger, the football player...forgot his name. So what that he turned down millions to serve his country, didn't have to make like national/world headlines because of it.

See, this really irks me so I'm gonna stop. Kinda feel like it's the new Austin, Texas MTV Real World series. Everyone is opposed to war, yet the people who serve are protecting YOUR freedoms which you enjoy every day and you are bashing them for it. Trade shoes people, trade shoes...YOU go fight in Iraq and get bullets, mortars, rockets and IEDs thrown your way and I'll sit here and say it's bad. Go watch your friends die (one of mine got blasted in the head while sitting in a Bradley Fighting Vehicle, by an RPG in his head. Took EOD 16hours to get it out and destroy it before we could remove him from the vehicle).
