Danish Politicians: Unassimilated Muslims Threaten Society

As Muslim immigration to Denmark increases, Danish politicians have begun to speak out against the potential (and possible eventual) destruction of Danish society.

"Denmark is the land of the Danes and you are more than welcome to become a Dane and take part in the work and community," Støjberg wrote. "But to those Muslims who constantly work against us, constantly question us, are unsatisfied, encourage going to holy war in Syria, commit honor killings, belittle our values, flag or way of living, to all of you: Go and find somewhere else to live. No one is forcing you to stay. We accepted you and now it’s up to you to show the necessary respect for our society and the values it is built upon."

"We must not have a Denmark where Danish traditions disappear as soon as there is a Muslim majority," Tom Behnke, spokesman for the Danish Conservative Party, declared.

"I think it is deeply alarming that our integration efforts are so ineffective that the moment there is a Muslim majority, we do away with good, old Danish traditions and introduce Muslim traditions instead. We are living in Denmark, and people have to adapt to the situation that applies here," Behnke continued.

In an opinion piece published in the Danish Politiken newspaper, Inger Støjberg, immigration spokesperson for Denmark’s leading opposition party Venstre, criticized Danish Muslims who try to shield themselves from Danish values and norms and who think that their religious beliefs should not be allowed to be mocked.

Denmark is currently offering a cash incentive of $18,000 to entice Muslim immigrants to return to their homelands if they “can't or won't” assimilate into Danish society.

Denmark, along with other European countries, faces serious problems with immigrants who are unwilling to assimilate into Danish culture, as well as a surge in violent crime.

Muslim street gangs who have formed are involved in all types of criminal activities, including robbery, automobile theft, prostitution, drug trafficking, illegal weapons smuggling, extortion, and murder. The gangs have taken over large parts of Danish towns and cities. Copenhagen's police resources are being drained by having to contend with the out of control Muslim crime rate.

In Copenhagen violent Muslim gangs are on the increase with several shootings each week. Some Muslim ghettos are seeing such rampant arson attacks that Denmark is contemplating calling out the National Guard to patrol the area. In some suburbs in Copenhagen there exist "no-go-zones" which are domains ruled by Muslim gangs and where non-Muslims do not dare to go. Even local police are afraid to enter.

Muslims living in Denmark have also warned Jews not to send their children to public schools. Jews report that it is unsafe to be a Jew in Copenhagen in 2013, with a feeling similar to that of World War II. Jewish schools are surrounded by high barbed wire fences and are constantly patrolled by security guards.

Last winter, in a town near Copenhagen, the Muslim-majority Board of Directors of a tenant’s association own, forced the cancellation of a small traditional Christmas event. Yet, they allocated money for an extravagant communal celebration for the Muslim holiday of Eid, which marks the end of Ramadan.

As ClarionProject.org reported at the time, “The Christmas tree controversy took an ominous new twist on November 12, when a van carrying two journalists from TV2 News was attacked by 25 masked hoodlums. The journalists had gone to the Egedalsvænget housing complex to film a report about the story, but immediately upon their arrival their van was bombarded with bricks and cobblestones. The attackers destroyed the van and chased the hapless journalists out of the area.”

When asked whether housing associations with a Muslim minority should sponsor an Eid party, Behnke replied, "We have to remember that in the past, an Eid festival was the Muslims' victory celebration after they had slaughtered the Christians, so I don't know how much there is to celebrate in Denmark. Still, people should be allowed to celebrate whatever festivals they want to, but they also must respect the festivals in the country they have come to."
