"
Lebanon 'regrets' embassy attack
Wreckage of Danish embassy
Embassy employees survey came to survey the damage
The Lebanese government has apologised to Denmark after protesters ransacked its Beirut embassy, plunging troubled Lebanon into fresh political turmoil.

The mission was attacked on Sunday by Muslims angry at cartoons satirising the Prophet Mohammed in a Danish paper.

The interior minister quit after the attack and the commander of the army has offered to step down.

The Beirut government has condemned the cartoons, but also denounced the violence in which one person died."

Unfortunately I doubt this will do much to silence the critics of the muslim world. Good for Lebanon though.

thats just because Lebanon is under a huge pressure from the western world. I dont think they really mean it. Especially not because they showed pictures from Lebanon where you could see that the police officers didn't do much to stop the riots.

Quoting AirPacific747 (Reply 7):
the apology for example?

maybe the official opinion is apologizing, but if you ask people on the street, I am sure you would find very very few people who are willing to apologize for destroying the embassies

exactly among people on the street the vast majority WOULD and will indeed apologize, and DO regret what has happened. It is NOT Arab culture to do such things as what has happened. Diplomats are GUESTS and are protected.

That's fine. But what about "condemn" "abhor" "totally reject calls for violence and terror"?

That might have been a little more appropriate in the wake of this Muslim insanity.

It's nice to hear the religious leaders and the citizens of the area seem to have some sense, but these governments need to really put their foot down on this stuff.

It has been proved that many of the arrested protesters that burned the Danish embassy in Beirut came from Syria.Of course there were Lebanese protesters as well,but it seemed a steered action from some elements that wanted things to get out of control.
Syria unfortunately plays a dirty role currently in Lebanon ( and previously..) and wants to de-stabilize the country -which seems relatively easy due to it's complex cultural and religious composition.I do wish that Lebanon quickly finds it's historic place as crossroad of cultures and good life.One can never judge a country just based on a loud,visible and violent minority.This is true for most muslim countries.Things will calm down and we have to re-build confidence and mutual trust-even if it sounds difficult today.

They condemn the violence yet still promote the negativity towards Europe's freedom of press. This is a paradox that, regretably, some moslems will never be able to reconcile and will continually protest with violence.

It's not surprising to me that most of the protesters were Syrians and Palestinians. The Lebanese would not accept such a thing, they have been through a civil war and are sick of violence and especially Christian-Muslims violence. I think the Palestinians should be grateful to Lebanon for providing them a home under their circumstances rather than destroying the country's already fragile unity.

Also, Lebanon depends alot on tourism and it's becoming a trend for such incidents to occur before the summer to discourage visitors. Attacking a church is simply unacceptable and I don't think the Muslim extremists want to start another civil war there, there were be a lot of blood on BOTH sides. A Danish newpaper doesn't represent the Maronite church in Beirut!!
