Aage Bjerre's Pro-US Pizzeria

A Danish pizzeria owner banned French and Germans from eating in his restaurant in the 2003 run-up to the war in Iraq. Denmark sent troops to both Iraq and Afghanistan, but many Danes were upset by the ban. He was fined for discrimination but refused to pay it, landing him eight days in jail. He sold the shop after repeated vandalism and decreased sales. I don't think the average French or German citizen should be punished for the actions of their governments, but it is nice to hear that some people in Europe have a nice view of the US - bearing in mind that bashing America has been a European hobby for a few hundred years, and vice versa.

Speaking of which, there was also a pro-US rally in Denmark to correspond with the President's visit there. (tip to Instapundit)
