Poll finds Denmark is Egypt's second worst enemy, after Israel and before Britian and the USA

A while ago, the BBC reported on a poll conducted in Egypt by a government agency. The poll of 1,000 Egyptians was surprising in its findings. Israel was perceived as the most hostile to to Egypt, which is in itself no surprise. However, it is followed by Denmark, Britain and the United States, in that order! No doubt this perception is caused by the prophet Muhammad cartoon fiasco.I find it really sad that a country like Denmark is maligned as a whole due to the irresponsible and provocative actions of one single right wing newspaper. Having worked in Denmark and interacted with Danes for years, I find them to be one of the most polite and amicable people around. In world politics they are peaceful, and have extensive trade relations with the Muslim countries.This over generalization has to stop. The Danes here are not to blame, but a single newspaper.
