    Don’t expect the White House to call the shootings in Copenhagen by Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein, who attacked a Jewish synagogue, a hate crime. Police in Demark later gunned down el-Hussein, the newest “lone wolf” Islamic terrorist to attack Jews in Europe, after he killed two people. The attack was related to last month’s Charlie Hebdo shooting in Paris where Islamic assassins gunned down people who dared caricature Islam’s prophet of Doom, Mohammed.In a statement about the Copenhagen attack Obama had this to say: “Fore!”And don’t expect that he’ll say much more on it. That’s because Obama stayed on the...

    Pull up a chair and a grab a notepad while our president lies on a couch and speaks of his father, his youth in Indonesia, and the evils of western colonialism.  Yes, we are all now to be Obama’s national therapists.  The news cycle must never upset the delicate balance of his mind, lest he lose that placid demeanor and become angry or sullen. American media dutifully fulfills this purpose daily, serving up only the stuff that sustains Obama’s fragile psyche. I wrote that the Chapel Hill killings story would evaporate by today because it couldn’t be presented as a hate crime. ...

    Today, Valentine's Day, a café in Copenhagen hosted a discussion on "Art, Blasphemy and Freedom of Expression". Islam knows not "freedom of expression", and the inclination of a certain proportion of its adherents is to respond to any "discussion" by opening fire. Why wouldn't they? As President Selfie told the UN General Assembly, "The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam." The fanatics of Islam take him at his word, and act accordingly. So at that café this afternoon they came in shooting and yelling "Allahu Akbar!" - which is Arabic for "Can't we all...

    In what is looking like a colossal blunder, the Copenhagen shooter was released from prison. This came after his violent history had been tracked by Danish officials. Yesterday Omar El-Hussein killed two and injured five others at a free speech conference and synagogue. The 22 year old shooter had a long rapsheet and was under surveillance. The London Telegraph is reporting that he was released after serving a two year prison sentence for a violent crime. The shooter was born in Denmark and seemed to have been inspired by recent events: "He was on the radar but he was not...

    The Jewish community is an integral part of Danish society and it ought to remain in the country despite this weekend’s terror attacks, Copenhagen’s envoy to Israel said on Sunday. “The solution for the Jews of Denmark is not to leave in the wake of the terror attacks in Copenhagen on Saturday,” the ambassador, Jesper Vahr, said on Sunday. “Our prime minister said that an attack on the Jewish community is an attack on all of Denmark’s citizens. I echo this sentiment. We will do everything in our power so that the Jewish community in Denmark feels safe.” Vahr made...

Brink also said that during the shooting, “we stayed inside were just hiding behind tables that were turned over and everything we could hide behind…we were just hoping that the...

The shooting, which also wounded two police officers, occurred hours after a gunman killed one person at a shooting at a freedom of speech event hosted by the controversial Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks, although police said it was too early to tell if the two shootings were linked. It is unclear whether the location of the second shooting was of any significance or a coincidence. The victim was a civilian shot outside...

    1 dead in shooting at event with Muhammad cartoonist By Associated Press COPENHAGEN, Denmark — A gunman fired on a cafe in Copenhagen as it hosted a free speech event Saturday, killing one man, Danish police said. The event was organized by Swedish artist Lars Vilks, who has faced numerous threats for caricaturing the Prophet Muhammad. Danish police said the gunman shot through the windows of the Krudttoenden cafe, which the TV2 news channel said were riddled with some 30 bullet holes. Helle Merete Brix, one of the event’s organizers, told The Associated Press that Vilks was at the meeting...

Shortly after the attack, a message appeared on the Twitter feed of French ambassador Francois Zimeray saying he was unharmed.

    The earliest people in the North American Arctic remained isolated from others in the region for millennia before vanishing around 700 years ago, a new genetic analysis shows. The study, published online Thursday, also reveals that today's Inuit and Native Americans of the Arctic are genetically distinct from the region's first settlers. Inuit hunters in the Canadian Arctic have long told stories about a mysterious ancient people known as the Tunit, who once inhabited the far north. Tunit men, they recalled, possessed powerful magic and were strong enough to crush the neck of a walrus and singlehandedly haul the massive...

    Archaeologists working on the excavations for the Femern Bćlt Tunnel have discovered several well-preserved footprints dating back to the Stone Age. The prints were left by fishermen looking to safeguard their weirs (river barriers used for fishing) in a storm 5,000 years ago, announced Lolland-Falster Museum. "It is quite surreal to have found human footprints," said archaeologist Terje Stafseth in a press release. "We normally find historical clues in the form of human waste, but here we have found an entirely different clue and a first in Danish archaeology: a physical print left behind by a human." Prints belonged to...

    Carolineskolen in Řsterbro had its windows smashed and its walls painted with "political" anti-Semitic messages. The school's leader says nothing like it has happened before in the school's 200 year history. The private Jewish school Carolineskolen in Copenhagen’s Řsterbro was extensively vandalised overnight between Thursday and Friday. Windows were smashed and anti-Semitic graffiti was written on the school’s walls. “We are the world’s second-oldest functioning Jewish school and we have never before in our 210 year history experienced something like this,” school leader Jan Hansen told TV2 News. “Parents and children are worried, and some parents don’t want to send...
