    Denmark’s prime minister Lars Lřkke Rasmussen reportedly received a rebuke from Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu over Danish support for Palestinian organizations. The two prime ministers spoke over the telephone Wednesday, reports newspaper Berlingske, citing anonymous Danish and Israeli sources.Netanyahu wished to express his displeasure at Danish state support for a number of Palestinian organizations, according to the report. Neither Denmark nor Israel has officially confirmed that the conversation took place. Last week, Netanyahu asked Danish foreign minister Anders Samuelsen to scrap Denmark’s support for Palestinian organizations during an official visit by the latter to Jerusalem. After that meeting, Samuelsen signed...

    A recent study conducted by Denmark’s Ministry of Finance concluded that in 2014, immigrants and their descendants cost Danish taxpayers at net loss of 28 billion Crowns per year. Furthermore, when Western immigrants were removed from the equation, the net cost rose to 33kr billion. Compare this to tax receipts from ethnic Danes, who contributed a surplus of 56kr billion in 2014... In short: 59% of the tax surplus collected from native Danes is spent on ethnic minorities, who are a massive drain on the system. This would be roughly equivalent to America’s federal government spending $2.1 trillion per year...

    The Jewish Community in Denmark will contact police about an imam at a mosque in Copenhagen’s Nřrrebro neighborhood who encouraged attacks on Jews during a Friday service, reports newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad. The complaint will be based on a video recording of a Friday service at the Masjid al-Faruq mosque in Nřrrebro on March 31st this year. The recording was translated from Arabic to English by American institute MEMRI. According to the translation, imam Mundhir Abdallah quotes a hadith — a report of a speech by the Prophet Mohammed used in Islamic scripture — which incites violence against Jews. “‘Judgment Day...

    A prophesy appearing to call for the murder of Jews repeated during a sermon at a Copenhagen mosque has caused outrage in Denmark after it was released online. Mundhir Abdallah was reported to police after being filmed repeating in Arabic an anti-Semitic hadith- a teaching of Muhammad. The verse says “Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them.” He declares a “caliphate” is coming – that is a state governed in accordance with Islamic Sharia law. It will be part of a jihad to unite the Muslim community and liberate the al-Aqsa mosque in...

    Denmark continued its position as one of the few success stories in an era in which global media freedom is coming increasingly under threat, says a new report by Reporters Without Borders (RSF). For the second year running, Denmark took fourth place on the RSF index, despite it being a year in which the global situation relating to press freedoms has worsened in nearly two thirds of the 180 countries in the Index. The authors of the index cited an article in Denmark’s 1849 constitution which guarantees freedom of speech and says that “censorship and other preventive measures can never...

    Denmark’s integration minister Inger Střjberg says that citizens should contact authorities if they witness “many people walking around in the back, not speaking Danish at all” in pizzerias. The minister, reacting to a report by TV2 on record numbers of illegal immigrants in Denmark, told the broadcaster that the public had a duty to help authorities track down undocumented migrants. “I would actually encourage completely normal Danes to, when they are for example are at their local pizzeria and think that there is something weird going on in the back room because there are many people going around in there...

Wednesday, also said that he would look to promote Danish export interests during his meeting with Trump. “First and foremost I want to have a good meeting tomorrow in a good atmosphere that will allow me to keep in touch with the American president. I had a good telephone conversation with him in November, and I think that is one of the reasons why I am here...

    Minister of Finance Kristian Jensen says he is determined that Britain’s imminent exit from the EU will not mean more expensive membership for Denmark. The Scandinavian country currently benefits from a membership discount due to the contribution made by the UK for its membership. Sweden’s prime minister Stefan Löfven said Monday that the EU would have to adjust its budget for the multi-billion euro hole left in its finances by Britain’s exit. But Jensen said that Denmark would rather focus on the total amount it pays into the European Union. Denmark, Sweden, Austria, Germany and the Netherlands currently benefit from...

    The proportion of babies born to mothers with an immigrant background in Denmark has risen dramatically in ten years, largely because of Syrian arrivals. Last year, 61,614 children were born in the northern European nation – 21.6 per cent of them (or one in five) to a mother who is an immigrant or a descendant of one. The vast majority, 18.5 per cent, were born to first generation migrant women. Just a decade ago in 2007, the proportion was 13.5 per cent, figures from Statistics Denmark, reported by Kristeligt Dagblad, reveal. The influx of migrants from Syria is one of...

    Consider Denmark and Norway The inexplicable happiness of the Norwegians and Danes as propagandized by the liberal-left media created a model for humanity and for America’s Democrats. It is a socialist utopia with no needy people and a government largesse subsuming the entire gamut of free-lunch ideology. Scandanavian societies are outwardly more humane than Eastern Block Soviet nations under Stalinist rule. The oppression of the Scandanavians at first glance is benign. But…it is oppression nevertheless, and benign only to those who prefer to have bureaucrats make the decisions for their lives and futures. They have absolutely no idea what makes...

    Danish people have become consistently mere generous over the last four year when it comes to donating money to refugees, a new survey shows. Carried out by Voxmeter on behalf of the Danish Red Cross, the survey shows that 9.4 percent of Danes state that they would give money to refugees today compared to 4.5 percent in 2016 and 2.3 percent in 2013. The results reflect a significant change in the attitudes of Danes towards helping others, according to the secretary general of the Danish Red Cross (DRC). Anders Ladekarl, DRC’s general secretary, told news agency Ritzau that Danes have...
  • Danish parties call for deal to block EU referendum [fear another Brexit]

    A group of Danish political parties plan to push for a parliamentary deal committing all the country’s pro-European Union parties never to put the country’s EU membership to an in-out referendum. The Danish Social Liberal Party, The Alternative and the Socialist Left Party argue that the deal tying Denmark more securely to the EU will help Denmark’s economy by making international investors better able to predict the future.    The deal would also help prevent the eurosceptic Danish People's Party demanding that either the Liberal or the Social Democrat party hold a referendum as the price of its support after...

    Ah, Denmark, once famous for free speech, now on the cutting edge of re-instituting prosecutions for blasphemy."Blasphemy." Etymologically, the word means "speaking evil," but to our enlightened ears it has a quaint ring to it. I mean, when was the last time you heard about someone being prosecuted for blasphemy? How old-fashioned.In Denmark, the last time a person was prosecuted for blasphemy was in 1971, when two people were hauled up before a judge for a song making fun of Christianity. They were acquitted. To find someone actually convicted of blasphemy (the statute against it in Denmark goes back to...

    An international conference to raise money for charities providing access to safe abortion will be held in Brussels in March in response to President Donald Trump’s gag on US funding, conference co-host Sweden said on Thursday. Development aid ministers from Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands, as well as representatives from over 50 countries are expected to attend the “She Decides” conference on March 2. In one of his first acts as president, Trump reintroduced the global gag rule, enacted by Ronald Reagan in 1984, which prohibits foreign charities from using US federal funding to provide abortion services, information, counseling or...
