    Danish pizzeria bans French and Germans

    A Danish pizzeria has banned French and Germans from dining there because of their country's stance on a war with Iraq.

    Aage Bjerre, who owns Aage's Pizza on the island of Fanoe, said he's tired of French and German attitudes toward the United States.

    He's put two homemade drawings on the shop door, one a silhouette of a man coloured red, yellow and black for Germany and another in the red, white and blue for France.

    Both silhouettes have a bar across them.

    He says Germans will be allowed in if their country joins a war on Iraq, but the French will have to endure a lifetime ban.

    Aage said: "Hadn't the United States helped Europe in defeating Germany, there would have been photos of Adolf Hitler hanging on the walls around here."

    The ban has yet to affect his business because the tourist season only starts after Easter and peaks during the summer. "I do what my conscience tells me to do," he said.

    He added: "Frenchmen have a lifetime ban here. Their attitude toward the United States will never change."

      What did he hope to accomplish anyway? Does he think he's entitled to punish anyone who doesn't share his opinion?

        He accomplishment: Bravely expressing his opinion in the manner he saw fit.

        What do sniveling French waiters hope to accomplish by being rude to American diners?

        Are french/german diners really "punished" by his decison? Aren't their government's decison "punishing" the US?

        Don't worry I hear he is now mobbed with french diners....he hung a large white flag outside his pizza shop.

                Who cares what he intended to accomplish...it's his business and his profit margin. He's also not in the United States of the Offended and can get away with it.
