Strong odors from Denmark

The situation in Denmark has long since passed the early stages of decomposition, as the smells coming from that country are overpowering. A reader forwarded me an email from "a Danish Jew," dated March 5th:

An open letter to Danish MP's, European MP's, the Danish and foreign press and defenders of freedom everywhere:

Gangs of muslim immigrants demostrated openly in the streets of Copenhagen yesterday to kill DANISH JEWS!!

Believe it: An open call to violence and terror in the streets of Copenhagen, confronting Danes with a call to terror against Danish citizens!!! This is not a hoax. It is horribly real.

The question remains if political responsibility and will still exists amongst Parliamentarians and the Courts to stop this here and now!!!

Now Denmark is saddled with a problem of radical, fundamentalist activity by a growing group of young muslims. They are being bred, fed, co-ordinated and inspired by foreign terror and hate cells in the Middle East and in other European cities. With birth rates that far exceed that of the Danish population, and an hostile ideology of world conquest and essentially "religious imperialism" this radical population now open calls for killing Danish Jews - a group they outnumber by 40 to 1.

Their overwhelming numbers and a suspended sentence of 3 months in jail for a radical Hizb-ut-Tahrir fundamentalist hate calls to "kill Jews where you find them" on their website, seems to encourage even more activity and calls for violence, terror and death in Denmark!!

Danes have to be able to walk their streets without feeling intimidated. Parents should not have to have their children see this kind of violence, hatred and sociopathy in the streets of Copenhagen. PArents shouldn't have to worry about their children's safety.

Danish politicians have to take upon themselves the responsibility of dealing with this! Without regard to consequences, a foreign population with a hostile ideology is being allowed to create a slow acceptance of violence and change in the Danish society.

The evidence is overwhelming of a growing violence in schools, a lower educational level, hostility and crime on the streets, an explosion of gang rape against Danish girls, economic crime and tax and toll evasion in the kiosk's and vegetable shops muslims have all but taken over, along with open calls of violence toward Jews is the result of a Danish invitation to a new chance, and a new life, in democratic Denmark.

This abuse of freedom must be stopped before lives and liberty are lost. Before Denmark is changed irreparably.

Legislators in Denmark have to do something NOW, before someone is killed and injured.


The reader who forwarded me this email asked me to look into, wondering whether it could be true. Now, I can just enough Danish to get the main point of a newspaper article, but I was not able to find any reports of this demonstration in the Danish press (but my Danish is sufficiently poor that this could very well be my fault.) The English-language press does not contain any references to this demonstration either, so I can neither confirm nor deny that it took place. I would have thought that something like this would have attracted attention in the Israeli press, but I have not been able to find it (my knowledge of Hebrew is negligible, so I only searched the English-language publications in Israel).

However, the email does mention an organization called Hizb-ut-Tahrir, and they're not very hard to find on the web. The blogosphere's favorite expert on Islamofascism Daniel Pipes wrote about Hizb-ut-Tahrir last September:

A Muslim group in Denmark announced last month that a $30,000 bounty would be paid for the murder of several prominent Danish Jews, a threat that garnered wide international notice. [....] Muslim violence threatens Denmark's approximately 6,000 Jews, who increasingly depend on police protection. Jewish parents were told by one school principal that she could not guarantee their children's safety and were advised to attend another institution. Anti-Israel marches have turned into anti-Jewish riots. One organization, Hizb-ut-Tahrir, openly calls on Muslims to "kill all Jews . . . wherever you find them."

The theme of Hizb-ut-Tahrir calling for the murder of Jews in Denmark is not a one-off. An organization linked founded by a defector (who thinks Hizb-ut-Tahrir is too moderate), openly calls for the destruction of democracy in Denmark. The Danish website of Hizb-ut-Tahrir still contains the exhortation to kill Jews: "And kill them, whereever you find them." (The Danish for this is "Og dræb dem, hvorend I finder dem.") There are reports in Belingske Tidende and Politiken in Danish on this. Given this background and the brazen nature of these threats, it would not surprise me in the least that Muslims in Denmark would be willing to go out on the street and chant death threats to the Jews.

The weak response thus far from the Danish authorities to these threats from the Islamofascists is deeply worrying. Something as blatantly despicable as this should show up as a blip even on the radar of the most deranged multiculturalist. But apparently the decades of multiculturalist propaganda have led to the evisceration of any sense of right and wrong, giving a pass to anyone who is the Officially Recognized Victim Groups.

This is a serious threat to our way of life, the values of liberal democracy, and in fact all we hold dear; the things that make life worth living, the foundation of our freedom and prosperity, that which sets our minds free to create, argue and think without fear. Whether it's the Dutch AEL calling for the destruction of Israel, or these calls for the extermination of Jews in Denmark, they're part of the forces that arrayed against us. Not just the US and Britain, as the appeasers delude themselves, but they're arrayed against all of us in Europe. We'd better start dealing with the problem.

Very alarming.

Something the multiculturalists may need to know: If the political structure of the nation does nothing to mitigate the risk from violent newcomers, the risk of vigilantism grows greater.

Surely the people of Denmark do not wish to cleanse their nation of Jews, not with WWII still strong in the memories of so many still alive. The apathy of so many in europe to the threat bodes ill.

As a Dane and a person committed to combatting Holocaust-denial and anti-semitism for several years, I find your comments and slurs deeply offensive.

The Danish government is currently investigating whether Hizb-ut-Tahrir may be outlawed with a reference to the Danish constitution. The spokesperson for Hizb-ut-Tahrir has been found guilty of issuing threats, and senteced to three months (suspended) of prison, a - by Danish standards, quite harsh sentence. Furthermore the threaths against Jews is also being investigated as an offence towards the Danish "racism-paragraph" (266b of the Danish penal code) which outlaws slurs directed at ethnic or religious groups.

Certainly the government could not be accused of _not_ taking this seriously, yet it is worth noticing that the membership of Hizb-ut-Tahrir is estimated to be around 100-200 (and definitely no more than 500) persons in Denmark.

Also, the case of Hizb-ut-Tahrir had been recieveing quite a bit of extremely hostile coverage in the Danish media, and I dare say that the sympathy for their cause in the general population is far less than zero.
Every time they have held a public meeting so far, they've had to do it under false pretences, as nobody would allow them rental of room otherwise.

These people are every bit as stigmatized as is the Danish Nazi-party, and frankly, bearing in mind the Danish history in relation to anti-semitism and such, I honestly think we ought to get a bit more credit than what you've managed here...

(1)"..and senteced (sic) to three months (suspended) of prison, a - by Danish standards, quite harsh sentence."
(2)"Certainly the government could not be accused of _not_ taking this seriously,..."

Seems to me that with your naive view of harsh & seriously - you're getting all the credit you are due! And then some.

Tom: What I wrote was that the sentence was harsh by Danish standards. I'm certain that you'll easily prove me wrong, right Tom?...

Mikkel--
I, and others, recognize and appreciate Denmark's
strong history of protecting their Jews. As
I child, I was given the book "Rescue in Denmark"
by my parents to read, and I can quote passages
from it today.

Having said that, while the sentence may be harsh by Danish standards, unfortunately, it may be appropriate for the Danes to change their standards.

Let me explain how it works-- For every
active member of an organization such as
Hizb-ut-Tahrir, they will have from 3-10
sympathizers. These are people who agree with
the group, but will not say it openly.
Then there may be another 10-50 silent assenters,
people who will be know the group members but
just not say anything. What does this mean?
Well, of the group itself, somewhere from
1 to 10 percent will be very active-- that is,
they will be plotting to make good on their
threats in any way they can. These 2-20 people
will be aided by the other members of the group
and the sympathizers, and the silent assenters
will not say anything. And what will happen
is that an act of extreme violence *will*
occur. Perhaps a machine gunning of a
schoolbus, a burning of a synagogue. Then
you will have a much bigger problem because if
you do not catch the perpetrators they will
be emboldened and more violence will occur.

The need for pre-emption is not only
limited to countries in the Middle East,
unfortunately. In any case, I wish you and
all Danes the best.

Danish people - at large - apparently simply dislike foreigners. I thought about coming to Denmark to pursue my Masters degree - but called of my plans when I have heard stories of how Danish people stygmatise and despise anyone who does not look Scandinavian! And after visiting the country myself and feeling stared at only because I have dark hair and eyes and speak no Danish.

Strange. At better times, there were many Danish tourists in Israel. Some stayed for longer spells. I don't think they faced any problems there. To the contrary!

It is true that Danes do discriminate against foreigners.

If you're not Danish, you are considered second class and will never have the same opportunities as a Dane.

If you were educated outside of Denmark, your degree is worth toilet paper in Denmark. You'll have to get re-educated in Denmark. Danes will tell you that you have to learn the Danish language to get a good job! BS! Don't believe a word of it. Even if you get re-educated AND learn the Danish language, you still won't get a good job simply because you are not Danish!

If you have children in Denmark, they will not be considered first generation Danish, but 2nd generation foreigner!

Apparently it's OK when Danes go abroad to further their education or to get a job but when foreigners want to emigrate to Denmark, you will find many racists and xenophobes who refuse to hire you simply because you are not Danish. You'll find a brick wall with zero opportunities.

If you see any Danes in your country, tell them to go back to Denmark where they obviously belong.
