They probably don’t realize that they’re demanding these muslims to condemn a crucial portion of anti-semitic language embedded in the koran.
Copenhagen City Council members pointed to the society’s invitation to British imam Haitham al-Haddad earlier this year. According to city officials, al-Haddad “accepts violence against women and believes that Jews are the descendants of pigs and apes”.
This reminds me greatly of the Swedish FM Margot Wallström who lambasted the Saudis‘ atrocious human rights abuses, but failed to consider that they are based in islamic law, the sharia. She then was mortified that the Saudis started calling her islamofauxbic.
Copenhagen may cut ties with Muslim group

The City of Copenhagen has given the Islamic Society in Denmark (Det Islamisk Trossamfund) a 30-day deadline to condemn controversial statements made by some of the society’s members.
A collaboration between the Islamic Society in Denmark and the City of Copenhagen may be dropped over comments made by representatives and associates of the Muslim group, politicians said on Tuesday.
The city and the faith group work together on integration and anti-radicalization projects but that partnership will end if the society doesn’t account for controversial opinions expressed by some of its members and guests.
