Citizenship is not a right, it’s a privilege bestowed by the people to others who respect their rights, values and way of life. At least it’s supposed to be that way.
Denmark presents new anti-jihadist strategy

The Danish government on Friday announced a plan for combating radicalization and extremism and slowing the stream of Danish citizens who fight in foreign wars.
Besides the punitive measures, the government will also introduce new prevention strategies including a national hotline for concerned parents, a corps of ‘mentors’ to counsel at-risk individuals and the creation of a new national exit center to support those looking to leave the extremist environment.
“We will make strong efforts with preventive measures, but at the same time we will also hit hard with concrete consequences for those who continue down the wrong path. To them, I would say that if despite all of the warnings they decided to go abroad to engage in armed conflict, they are not welcome back in Denmark. We will take their resident permits. And Danish citizens will be imprisoned when they come home,” the justice minister, Karen Hækkerup, said in a press release.
