A Danish By Any Other Name

First it was "freedom fries", "freedom toast", and perhaps even the "freedom kiss".
Now we have "Roses of the Prophet Muhammed".

I read that in Iranians must no longer ask for a "danish", but they must refer to the pastries by the aforementioned name.

Yeah, I kinda rolled my eyes when I heard the outcry against the French allegedly resulted in an end to french manicures and that the streets of DC were flowing with french wines out of protest.

If only it was just about renaming baked goods...people are dying and in the streets and it is blood, not wine being spilt.
