Pakistani ambassador to Denmark: How you like us now?

The Pakistani ambassador to Denmark, Fauzia Mufti Abbas, had somewhat undiplomatic words for Danes in the wake of the Danish embassy bombing in Islamabad.
'It isn't just the people of Pakistan that feel they have been harassed by what your newspaper has begun,' she said. 'I'd like to know if your newspaper is satisfied with what it has done and what it has unleashed?'

'Danes know that they have insulted people around the world by printing and reprinting the Mohammed cartoons, which were done in poor taste.'
Do the words persona non grata mean anything to you, Ms. Abbas?
