Buy Swedish

Via Tim Worstall, this is a very good suggestion:

About one hundred Swedish companies have been threatened on Islamist websites in the last few days. Jihadist websites call for Muslims to boycott companies like IKEA, H&M, Ericsson and Electrolux, and in several cases to attack them. This is evil times two. They attack people who have nothing to do with what they are fighting against, and they do it because they want to put pressure on the Swedish government to stop artists like Lars Vilks from mocking religion.
So buy Swedish. It worked when there was a Muslim boycott of Danish produce - the year of the boycott, Danish exports actually rose.

UPDATE: Furrowed Brow points out in the comments that Absolut vodka is Swedish. 8-)
