The rather wellknown author Muhammed, famous for his early work “The Koran”, has published his second book. This time the subject and the name of the book is short and direct: “Art”. The views on art is interesting. Muhammed means that “Art is One” and, with self confidence, “I am the best of the artists”. He does, though, pay respect also to other artists: “Those who fled at the battle of Uhud are also artists, but just by mercy.”
This picture of Muhammed is more friendly than those of the Danes. But Denmark started a debate and the country has now become famous. The Prime Minister has not yet understood the possibilities: There are beer to sell as well as pork and cheese. Maybe not to muslims, but there are a lot of consumers all over the world that could be attracted by the famous Danish image.
The friendly gesture, is friendly, thus less provocative, but also less interesting.
