Denmark targets extremist mediaThe hardening tone worries me. The Danish immigration minister was targeted by an arson attack, and now this. Scandinavia is no longer the "peaceful corner of the world" it once was. Sweden isn't the only country that risks getting a civil war triggered by Muslim immigration. Three out of four Danes expect a terror attack in their country:
Denmark targets extremist media
Following the London bombs on 7 July, at least three extremist websites have warned that Denmark could be the next target. The reason for such threats is the 500 Danish troops working alongside US and British troops in Iraq. Danish police have warned people to be more vigilant and have put more police officers on patrol. Police are particularly visible in the centre of the Danish capital, Copenhagen, and around the Metro train system. Since the bomb attacks in London, there has been an increased focus on extremist groups in Denmark. Only last week, the spokesman for the Danish branch of Hizb ut-Tahrir, Fadi Abdullatif, was charged with calling for the killing of the Danish government.
Anti-immigrant radio station shut down
A local radio station has had its broadcasting licence revoked for three months for promoting racism and ethnic hatred, national broadcaster DR reported. The National Radio and TV Commission decided to immediately withdraw the broadcasting licence of Radio Holger, named after a mythological defender of Denmark. The decision came after Radio Holger's hosts commented on the terrorist attacks on London last month, and discussed the means of preventing such an attack in Denmark. 'There are only two ways to react if we want to prevent terrorist bombings. We either need to expel all foreign Muslims from western Europe, so they can't plant their bombs, or exterminate all fanatic Muslims, which would mean killing a considerable part of all Muslim immigrants,' the station's host said on 12 July. Radio Holger's owner, Kaj Vilhelmsen, said he was not surprised by the revocation, and said he was ready to file a complaint with the Ministry of Culture. He added that he would continue to advocate for the repatriation of foreign residents in other media.
