Denmark

Here's the profile of the nation whose embassies Muslims are burning. Danes are brave, trustworthy, tolerant, hard working, productive, wealthy and honest - the opposite end of the spectrum to their adversaries.

Population 5.5 million, about the same as Israel

Area twice that of Israel and Massachusetts

Fourth least corrupt nation in the world

In the top rank of free nations
(follow the Charts and Graphs link)

GDP (at purchasing power parity) about 25% higher than Israel

Per capita GDP (PPP adjusted) about 110% of the Brits and 80% of the US

Self sufficient in oil

Oldest monarchy in Europe, with a steadfast Queen who just said:

“We have to show our opposition to Islam and we have to, at times, run the risk of having unflattering labels placed on us because there are some things for which we should display no tolerance.


With the only NATO army that whacked the Serbs
The Serbs in Bosnia made the mistake of assuming the Danish tanks would, like their NATO allies, run or surrender when attacked:
...Shortly after the clash, the Bosnian Serbs reported the loss of 9 men. But other sources estimate it to around 150 soldiers having been killed and a similar number wounded. The Danes themselves suffered no casualties.

That in WW2 saved its Jewish population from the Nazis
The rescue allowed the vast majority of Denmark's Jewish population to avoid
capture by the Nazis and is considered to be one of the largest actions of
collective resistance to repression in the countries occupied by Nazi Germany.

Birthplace of Emperor Darth Misha of Rottweiler

Also of Bjorn Lomborg, the man who demolished the environmentalist movement

That exports excellent products making it easy to Buy Danish
(I'd add Lindberg titanium eyewear to the list).

Denmark is a really bad country to pick a fight with.
