Islam broadcast enrages Danish People's Party

The Danish People's Party has accused state broadcaster Danmarks Radio (DR) for favouring Islam in Friday's Great Prayer Day TV and radio broadcasts. DR had aired a Muslim Friday prayer service as a part of is observance the national religious holiday. 'Great Prayer Day is traditional Christian holy day where churches call Danes to prayer services. But on Great Prayer Day, it isn't the Danish people's faith that is most important for DR. They favourise Islam there,' said Søren Krarup, immigrant issues spokesman for the Danish People's Party. DR rejected Krarup's claim that the organisation favoured Islam to Christianity. Leif Lønsmann, the head of the corporation's radio service, pointed out that the Great Prayer Day broadcast was the only time during the year that DR has live coverage of Muslim prayer services. Lønsmann said that despite the wave of complaints from listeners over their decision to air the prayer services, he felt that it served the station's public service obligation. 'There's an apparently a rising intolerance over our allowing Muslims modest access to the airwaves. I feel that it is a good service for the faithful and a good public service for us, who don't believe,' said Lønsmann.

Who the heck would be interested in watching live coverage of a Muslim prayer service, anyway? What percentage of Denmark's population is Muslim? Given the "public service" justification, these are valid questions that concern just how much of the public was actually served.

Of course only a "state broadcaster" would bother.

We've seen similar "prayers" in SVT - Swedish (public service) Television.

'Who the heck would be interested in watching live coverage of a Muslim prayer service, anyway?'

Simple answer: Islam is the new cult of the Scandinavian left.

Like old school Marxists and Nazis they hate freedom, capitalism, the Anglo-sphere and "the Jews". The Muslim legions of Europe are the cheap foot-soldiers in their new "struggle".

Actually this is the decline and fall of the Roman Empire part 2. The leftwing elite is the Roman "nobles" and the Muslim immigrants are the barbarian hordes. Utopian EUrabia is their new Dark Age.

See you around next millennium...

Giving Islam preference over Christianity, has been going on at the BBC, for well over a decade. It was hard to question them for this, as one could be easily stigtmatised as a bigot. After 9/11, it has become a little bit less hard, but BBC propaganda for Islam, and its hatred of Christianity, continues unabated. This hatred of Christianity, the very faith that has given the modern tolerant and secular state, makes it way in any programme, even if only tangentially connected to the issue.


With your permission may I recommend a very informed article, to a debate setoff by Daniel Pipes and Laurence Auster.

You may, if you like, get to the original Pipe's article and Laurence Auster's reply from the above link.
