Topple Danish government to drive through Muslim ban’Much as I like the Danish government being one of Europe’s best, this issue is sufficiently serious that its worth toppling it if they really do get an Orban in exchange. Best thing perhaps is if they just adopt a zero tolerance for Islam policy and then maintain.
One of the Danish People’s Party’s most
influential figures has called for it to topple the minority
centre-right government of Lars Løkke Rasmussen in a bid to force
through a temporary ban on Islamic immigration.
Søren Krarup, the priest regarded as the party’s chief ideologue,
said he supported the call made on Thursday by the party’s deputy leader
Søren Espersen for a total ban on immigration from Muslim countries for
a period of 4-6 years, and believed that the best way to achieve this
was to withdraw support from the government.
“In my opinion, the Danish People’s Party should topple the [Lars]
Løkke [Rasmussen] government without reflection,” Krarup told Denmark’s
Berlingske newspaper. “Løkke is a completely unqualified leader, who
would rather cultivate a European supra-nationalism than to treat
Denmark as a Christian country with our own historical context.”
The Open Doors charity estimates
that 7,000 Christians were killed in the year to October 2015 for
faith-related reasons. They estimate that 2,400 churches were attacked
or damaged. They state that “Islamic extremism is by far the most common
driver of persecution.” His Grace Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of
the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom, released a statement
this week in which he talked about the “exponential rise in attacks
against Christians and Christian property in recent months.” He
described “a growing trend towards the direct targeting of priests and
their families.” Regular Islamic attacks on churches and Christians are
not new in Egypt or indeed in many other countries.
Thousands are expected to gather in the capital’s
historic Washington Square for an anti-immigration rally, where they
will be addressed by right-wing politicians. News of the gathering is being spread under the hashtag
#Merkelmussweg – meaning Merkel must go – which has been used more than
1,500 times in 24 hours reaching hundreds of thousands of people.
