The weekend's attack in Copenhagen, which has claimed two lives and injured five policemen, arouses anger in Danish Muslim organizations.

A combined news release from all the Danish Muslim organizations.

To the terrorist we say: Your action is not in our name and nothing in your action can be linked with Islam. What you have done is a manifestation of evil and dark thinking.

- That you subsequently are trying to escape from your deed merely show the cowardice of your action. In connection with the shooting two innocent civilian men were killed while others were severely injured by the shots. Our thoughts and deepest condolences go to the families of the deceased
and to those who were injured.

I think it is a fairly effective statement, the first part was probably enough but the second paragraph was a well aimed shot to the nads of these clawns.

Topic: The day after.




Police officers place flowers, in sympathy with the victims' families,
at the locations where the two civilians were killed.

Commemorations are planned several places in the country today.

The Danish Muslims Joint Council has urged the Muslims to pray for the killed civilians, the wounded police officers and all relatives.

A phenomenon is beginning to spread in Copenhagen.
People are beginning to say hello and smile to the Muslims they meet on their way to demonstrate that we don´t connect this heinous act with Islam.

Otherwise there is very quiet in Copenhagen today.
People take it quite calmly - which is typical Danish; it is not part of the Danish mentality to be intimidated so easily.

The perpetrator of the attacks was Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein, 22 years old, born in Denmark and known to be associated with gangs. The man is known for several crimes, including violations of the Arms Act and violence.
He was two weeks ago released from prison. The motive is still unknown.

Kesse, what is the climate like over there as far as tensions between foriegners and Danes. I know there are quite a few dissenting voices in Europe right now, but I am curious about what the word is away from the talking heads?

The vast majority of foreigners come from EU countries or countries that are culturally similar to ours; however there´s an immigration which has created Muslim parallel societies that are characterized by a different culture and a different view of society than the Danish. Danes and foreigners generally have a good relationship and in daily life, there are no major problems.

The Danes are often characterized as xenophobic and opponents of all that is foreign. But that’s not right. We live in a very open society based on mutual trust and are used to discuss everything on a very open basis. Danes appreciate freedom such as religious, sexual, political and not least the freedom of speech.

At the same time there has been a radicalization of Islam, both in the Muslim world and in Europe. In the Muslim parallel societies there is a widespread belief that society should be ruled by religion.

It abuts with the secular society we have in Denmark - a society where it is free people and not religion that determines. The clash has many forms. One of them is about freedom of expression. Most Muslims do not believe that freedom of expression must be used for criticism and satire against the Prophet Mohammed and Islam.

The majority of Danes are not hostile toward strangers, but we are skeptical. Many believe that we have failed to integrate the people who are not from the Western world. Generally, the Danes have a tendency to assess the impact of immigration as negative. We are afraid that our unique culture and our freedoms rights may be limited.

Looking at the issues Danes believe exists, then it´s primarily social issues such as unemployment and crime rate among them more than the foreigner's greater religiosity. So far there are no major controversies between the ordinary Danish citizens and people of foreign origin. However, there is an increasing tendency that the Muslim community wants more religious considerations taken at the expense of the Danish values which mean that more and more people will develop an increasingly negative attitude to Muslims especially.

This is a problem we have to discuss in an open forum without pulling out the Racism card every time we talk about Islam and Danish culture. It requires that the leftist puts their prejudices away and actually takes the anxious citizens opinion seriously.

We are a people that can accommodate a lot, but we have a boundary line and it gets closer and closer teach day. As said, it´s small problems we have with people of foreign origin – so far!
