Muslims in Denmark.

Results of one of many Muslim invasions

Here is what Denmark is doing to correct the problem that crept up on them in
all of their goodness…..

A must read for Americans & Canadians, our politicians need a wake-up call.

By Susan MacAllen

In 1978-9 I was living and studying in Denmark .

But in 1978 – even in Copenhagen , one didn’t see Muslim immigrants. The Danish
population embraced visitors, celebrated the exotic, went out of its way to
protect each of its citizens. It was proud of its new brand of socialist
liberalism – one in development since the conservatives had lost power in 1929 –
a system where no worker had to struggle to survive, where one ultimately could
count upon the state as in, perhaps, no other western nation at the time.

The rest of Europe saw the Scandinavians as free-thinking, progressive and
infinitely generous in their welfare policies. Denmark boasted low crime rates,
devotion to the environment, a superior educational system and a history of
humanitarianism.

Denmark was also most generous in its immigration policies – it offered the best
welcome in Europe to the new immigrant: generous welfare payments from first
arrival plus additional perks in transportation, housing and education.. It was
determined to set a world example for inclusiveness and multiculturalism. How
could it have predicted that one day in 2005 a series of political cartoons in a
newspaper would spark violence that would leave dozens dead in the streets – all
because its commitment to multiculturalism would come back to bite?

By the 1990’s the growing urban Muslim population was obvious – and its
unwillingness to integrate into Danish society was obvious. Years of immigrants
had settled into Muslim-exclusive enclaves. As the Muslim leadership became more
vocal about what they considered the decadence of Denmark ‘s liberal way of
life, the Danes – once so welcoming – began to feel slighted. Many Danes had
begun to see Islam as incompatible with their long-standing values: belief in
personal liberty and free speech, in equality for women, in tolerance for other
ethnic groups, and a deep pride in Danish heritage and history.

The New York Post in 2002 ran an article by Daniel Pipes and Lars Hedegaard, in
which they for ecasted accurately that the growing immigrant problem in Denmark
would explode. In the article they reported:

“Muslim immigrants constitute 5 percent of the population but consume upwards of
40 percent of the welfare spending.”

“Muslims are only 4 percent of Denmark’s 5.4 million people but make up a
majority of the country’s convi cted rapists, an especially combustible issue
given that practically all the female victims are non-Muslim. Similar, if
lesser, disproportions are found in other crimes.”

“Over time, as Muslim immigrants increase in numbers, they wish less to mix with
the indigenous population. A recent survey finds that only 5 percent of young
Muslim immigrants would readily marry a Dane.”

“Forced marriages – promising a newborn daughter in Denmark to a male cousin in
the home country, then compelling her to marry him, sometimes on pain of death –
are one problem”

“Muslim leaders openly declare their goal of introducing Islamic law once
Denmark ‘s Muslim population grows large enough – a not-that-remote prospect If
present trends persist, one sociologist estimates, every third inhabitant of
Denmark in 40 years will be Muslim.”

It is easy to understand why a growing number of Danes would feel that Muslim
immigrants show little respect for Danish values and laws. An example is the
phenomenon common to other European countries and the U.S. : some Muslims in
Denmark who opted to leave the Muslim faith have been murdered in the name of
Islam, while others hide in fear for their lives. Jews are also threatened and
harassed openly by Muslim leaders in Denmark, a country where once Christian
citizens worked to smuggle out nearly all of their 7,000 Jews by night to
Sweden – before the Nazis could invade. I think of my Danish friend Elsa – who
as a teenager had dreaded cros sing the street to the bakery every morning under
the eyes of occupying Nazi soldiers – and I wonder what she would say today.

In 2001, Denmark elected the most conservative government in some 70 years – one
that had some decidedly non-generous ideas about liberal unfettered immigration.
Today Denmark has the strictest immigration policies in Europe ( Its effort to
protect itself has been met with accusations of “racism” by liberal media across
Europe – even as other governments struggle to right the s ocial problems
wrought by years of too-lax immigration.)

If you wish to become Danish, you must attend three years of language classes.
You must pass a test on Denmark’s history, culture, and a Danish language test.
You must live in Denmark for 7 years before applying for citizenship. You must
demonstrate an intent to work, and have a job waiting. If you wish to bring a
spouse into Denmark , you must both be over 24 years of age, and you won’t find
it so easy anymore to move your friends and family to Denmark with you

You will not be allowed to build a mosque in Copenhagen . Although your children
have a choice of some 30 Arabic culture and language schools in Denmark , they
will be strongly encouraged to assimilate to Danish society in ways that past
immigrants weren’t. < /P>

In 2006, the Danish minister for employment, Claus Hjort Frederiksen, spoke
publicly of the burden of Muslim immigrants on the Danish welfare system, and it
was horrifying: the government’s welfare committee had calculated that if
immigration from Third World countries were blocked, 75 percent of the cuts
needed to sustain the huge welfare system in coming decades would be
unnecessary. In other words, the welfare system as it existed was being
exploited by immigrants to the point of eventually bankrupting the government
“We are simply forced to adopt a new policy on immigration. The calculations of
the welfare committee are terrifying and show how unsuccessful the integration
of immigrants has been up to now,” he said.

A large thorn in the side of Denmark ‘s imams is the Minister of Immigration and
Integration, Rikke Hvilshoj. She makes no bones about the new policy toward
immigration, “The number of foreigners coming to the country makes a
difference,” Hvilshøj says, “There is an inverse correlation between how many
come here and how well we can receive the foreigners that come.” And on Muslim
immigrants needing to demonstrate a willingness to blend in, “In my view,
Denmark should be a country with room for different cultures and religions. Some
values, however, are more important than others. We refuse to question
democracy, equal rights, and freed om of speech.”

Hvilshoj has paid a price for her show of backbone. Perhaps to test her resolve,
the leading radical imam in Denmark, Ahmed Abdel Rahman Abu Laban, demanded that
the government pay blood money to the family of a Muslim who was murdered in a
suburb of Copenhagen, stating that the family’s thirst for revenge could be
thwarted for money. When Hvilshoj dismissed his demand, he argued that in Muslim
culture the payment of retribution money was common, to which Hvilshoj replied
that what is done in a Muslim country is not necessarily what is done in
Denmark. The Muslim reply came soon after: her house was torched while she, her
husband and children slept. All managed to escape unharmed, but she and her
family were moved to a secret location and she and other ministers were assigned
bodyguards for the first time – in a country where such murderous violence was
once so scarce.

Her government has slid to the right, and her borders have tightened. Many
believe that what happens in the next decade will determine whether Denmark
survives as a bastion of good living, humane thinking and social responsibility,
or whether it becomes a nation at civil war with supporters of Sharia law.

And meanwhile, Americans clamor for stricter immigration policies, and demand an
end to state welfare programs that allow many immigrants to live on the public
dole. As we in America look at the enclaves of Muslims amongst us, and see those
who enter our shores too easily, dare live on our taxes, yet refuse to embrace
our culture, respect our traditions, participate in our legal system, obey our
laws, speak our language, appreciate our history . we would do well to look to
Denmark, and say a prayer for her future and for our own.
