Muslims perpetrate vicious crimes and they’re supposedly the victims of non-Muslim backlashing that never happens.
Terror Strikes Copenhagen
“It Is the Danes’ Fault”
Imam Hajj Saeed of the Al-Faruq Mosque in Copenhagen, the day before the terror attack, rejected any thought of interfaith dialogue, and noted that the Prophet Muhammad waged war against his Jewish neighbors rather than engage in dialogue.
The day after the shootings, the political spokesperson of the main liberal opposition party went on television and said, “We are dealing with a small group that is abusing the Koran.” In other words, once again we are faced with one or more Muslims who have completely misunderstood their own religion. The implication, of course is that Danes have nothing to fear from the fast growing number of Muslims or the spread of Islam.
It would appear, however, that the killer, Omar el-Hussein, had not “abused” anything but simply followed Allah and his prophet.
“It is vital that we as Muslims do not distance ourselves [from el-Hussein’s actions] but put things in their right context. It is the Danish politicians and media that ought to distance themselves from the politics that have created the circumstances that lead to hatred, threats and violent attacks and eventually murder, regardless of who the victims may be. We must under no circumstances bow to the pressure or accept the premise that Islam is in the dock.” — From a press release issued by Junes Kock, spokesman for Hizb ut-Tahrir, Scandinavia.
In all likelihood, the politicians and the media will continue telling the Danes that they have nothing to fear from Islam.
It did not take many hours after last weekend’s two fatal terrorist attacks in the Danish capital before the usual phalanx of apologists of Islamism went into action.
Shortly after 3pm on Saturday, when 22-year-old Omar Abdel Hamid el-Hussein had shot and killed one of the guests attending a discussion on free speech at the Krudttønden cultural institute in Copenhagen’s Østerbro neighborhood, Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt arrived at the scene to express her sympathy with the families of the victim and the policemen who had been wounded in the firefight with el-Hussein. She also stressed the need for national unity in this time of horror.
The discussion that came under attack was attended by the Swedish artist Lars Vilks — famous for his drawing of Muhammad as a roundabout dog, and probably the intended target — and the French ambassador.
The first question Thorning-Schmidt got from one of the journalists was, “How do you think this is going to affect Muslims in Denmark?” None of the journalists asked, “What are you going to do to protect us from Islamist savagery?” Or, “How can you allow the current mass influx of Muslims when we have so obviously been unable to integrate those already here?”
These questions are now being asked by a growing number of ordinary Danes, for example in social media; but so far no politician of any note has acknowledged any connection between terror, immigration, the build-up of Muslim parallel communities and Islam.
