Nothing like German sensitivity

    You just got to love the Germans! After the Danish cartoon fiasco, the Berlin operahouse cancels a Mozart opera where the decapitated heads of Jesus, Buddha and Muhammed are on display. Mind you, the original opera by Mozart makes no reference to Islam but Hans Neuenfel, the director, introduced the new scene which caused outrage at its premiere in 2003.
    Sensible decission (although I just have changed the set up) but then here goes the German goverment:

    "The flurry of second-guessing came after intense criticism by German officials, including Chancellor Angela Merkel, that the opera house had surrendered its artistic freedom and yielded to fears of terrorism."

    So basicly the German government said: Let's fuck with Muslims, after all we haven't learnt anything from the recent past.
    (By the way, those Polish grazing fields look so green...)

    P.S.: Germany has 3.2 million Muslims to get funky....
