Denmark: Muslims & the Rape figures
User comment on article: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by steen raaschou, October 20, 2002 at 21:53

The numbers quoted by Pipes and Hedegaard are truly correct; they were quoted in
all major newspapers in February this year. They are police-statistics of
REPORTED rapes in 2001. More detailed:

as a whole: 68 % non-danish rapists are Muslim
Copenhagen: 76% " " " are Muslim

A grotesque overrepresentation: 7.4 % are foreigners. Half of these must be
women or underaged. In other words: aprox: 3 % of the population is responsible
for these crimes against Danish women.

In nearby Sweden it was worse, much worse: 2100 rapes in a year, reported. The
un-reported is estimated to be 10 times more, i.e. 20.000. In a small population
of 8.9 million people. They have taken more than double the immigrants than
Denmark, and have risen from the lowest violent-crime country in the world, to
US level in just 25 years.

Only in the last ten years crimes have risen by 30 % - especially against women

A Muslim group in Denmark announced a few days ago that a $30,000 bounty
would be paid for the murder of several prominent Danish Jews, a threat that
garnered wide international notice. Less well known is that this is just one
problem associated with Denmark's approximately 200,000 Muslim immigrants. The
key issue is that many of them show little desire to fit into their adopted

For years, Danes lauded multiculturalism and insisted they had no problem with
the Muslim customs - until one day they found that they did. Some major issues:

* Living on the dole: Third-world immigrants - most of them Muslims from
countries such as Turkey, Somalia, Pakistan, Lebanon and Iraq - constitute 5
percent of the population but consume upwards of 40 percent of the welfare

* Engaging in crime: Muslims are only 4 percent of Denmark's 5.4 million
people but make up a majority of the country's convicted rapists, an especially
combustible i! ssue given that practically all the female victims are
non-Muslim. Similar, if lesser, disproportions are found in other crimes.

* Self-imposed isolation: Over time, as Muslim immigrants increase in
numbers, they wish less to mix with the indigenous population. A recent survey
finds that only 5 percent of young Muslim immigrants would readily marry a Dane.

* Importing unacceptable customs: Forced marriages - promising a newborn
daughter in Denmark to a male cousin in the home country, then compelling her to
marry him, sometimes on pain of death - are one problem.

Another is threats to kill Muslims who convert out of Islam. One Kurdish convert
to Christianity, who went public to explain why she had changed religion, felt
the need to hide her face and conceal her identity, fearing for her life.

* Fomenting anti-Semitism: Muslim violence threatens Denmark's
approximately 6,000 Jews, who increasingly depend on police protection. Jewis! h
parents were told by one school principal that she could not guarantee their
children's safety and were advised to attend another institution. Anti-Israel
marches have turned into anti-Jewish riots. One organization, Hizb-ut-Tahrir,
openly calls on Muslims to "kill all Jews . . . wherever you
find them."

* Seeking Islamic law: Muslim leaders openly declare their goal of
introducing Islamic law once Denmark's Muslim population grows large enough - a
not-that-remote prospect. If present trends persist, one sociologist estimates,
every third inhabitant of Denmark in 40 years will be Muslim.
Other Europeans (such as the late Pim Fortuyn in Holland) have also grown
alarmed about these issues, but Danes were the first to make them the basis for
a change in government.
In a moment us election last November, a center-right coalition came to power
that - for the first time since 1929 - excluded the socialists. The right broke
its 72-year losing streak and won a s! olid parliamentary majority by promising
to handle immigration issues, the electorate's first concern, differently from
the socialists.
The next nine months did witness some fine-tuning of procedures: Immigrants now
must live seven years in Denmark (rather than three) to become permanent
residents. Most non-refugees no longer can collect welfare checks immediately on
entering the country. No one can bring into the country an intended spouse under
the age of 24. And the state prosecutor is considering a ban on Hizb-ut-Tahrir
for its death threats against Jews.

These minor adjustments prompted howls internationally - with European and U.N.
reports condemning Denmark for racism and "Islamophobia," the
Washington Post reporting that Muslim immigrants "face habitual
discrimination," and a London Guardian headline announcing that
"Copenhagen Flirts with Fascism."

In reality, however, the new government barely addressed the existing problems.
Nor did it prevent new! ones, such as the death threats against Jews or a recent
Islamic edict calling on Muslims to drive Danes out of the Norrebro quarter of

The authorities remain indulgent. The military mulls permitting Muslim soldiers
in Denmark's volunteer International Brigade to opt out of actions they don't
agree with - a privilege granted to members of no other faith. Mohammed Omar
Bakri, the self-proclaimed London-based "eyes, ears and mouth" of
Osama bin Laden, won permission to set up a branch of his organization, Al-Muhajiroun.

Contrary to media reports, the real news from Denmark is not flirting with
fascism but getting mired in inertia. A government elected specifically to deal
with a set of problems has made minimal headway. Its reluctance has potentially
profound implications for the West as a whole.
