    A widely-discussed proposal to ban public wearing of face-covering garments including the burqa and niqab is set to be voted on in Denmark’s parliament. Minister of Justice Søren Pape Poulsen, who was scheduled to present the proposal in parliament for a first round of voting on Thursday, said that a passing of the proposal into law would not result in police forcibly removing women’s burqas. Women wearing the burqa in public would be fined or asked to go home, the minister told newspaper Politiken. “If they live nearby, they will be asked to go home,” Poulsen said. A further option...

    The missing submarine was found off the coast of Denmark. Sea War Museum Jutland _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A missing German submarine said to have taken the defeated Nazi leadership to South America has been discovered after being lost at sea for nearly 73 years. The U-3523 was one of Hitler’s Type XXI submarines – a new and highly advanced design which came too late to stop an allied victory. It was the first class of U-boats designed to sail submerged for a prolonged period of time and had a range which allowed it to sail non-stop to South America. The U-3523...

    Bismarck's Blood and Iron Speech 150 Years Later Written by Bruce Walker One hundred and fifty years ago, on September 30, 1862, Otto von Bismarck gave his famous “Blut und Eisen” (“Blood and Iron”) speech before the Landtag, the Prussian legislature. In his speech, Bismarck claimed that the international policy of a modern state is built upon the willingness to fight — “Blut” (blood) — and the willingness to spend vast amounts of public treasure in creating giant armies — “Eisen” (iron). "The great questions of the time will not be resolved by speeches and majority decisions ... but by...

    Hundreds of 1,000-year-old silver coins, rings, pearls and bracelets linked to the era of Danish King Harald Gormsson have been found on the eastern German island of Ruegen in the Baltic Sea. A single silver coin was first found in January by two amateur archaeologists, one of them a 13-year-old boy, in a field near the village of Schaprode. The state archaeology office then became involved and the entire treasure was uncovered by experts over the weekend, the Mecklenburg-West Pomerania state archaeology office said Monday.

    Minister for employment Troels Lund Poulsen has backed suggestions that an ethics council for the use of data could be established by the Danish state. The idea has been raised by environmentalist party Alternative, which has proposed that areas such as privacy, data protection, artificial intelligence and data laws could come under the remit of the ethics council. A similar ethics body, the Danish Council of Ethics (Det Etiske Råd), already exists for healthcare matters. “I am open to discussion [of the idea],” Poulsen said to Ritzau. The government has already established a group tasked with finding potential solutions to...

    41,820 Facebook users in Denmark may have unwittingly had their data forwarded to controversial analysis firm Cambridge Analytica. Worldwide figures for data mining by Cambridge Analytica, which are in breach of Facebook’s rules, emerged on Wednesday. The data of up to 87 million worldwide users of the social media site may have been mined by the controversial consultancy firm — a considerably higher figure than the original estimate of 50 million. Seven Danish Facebook users downloaded an app that gave Cambridge Analytica access to private information, Ritzau reports. But data from up to 41,820 users of Facebook in Denmark may...

    The Danish personal registration number, commonly referred to as the CPR number, reached the milestone of 50 years since its introduction on Monday. But the future of the personal numbers, which are assigned to everyone registered as living in Denmark, may be more far-reaching than during their first half-century, according to an analyst. “I think that, in the future, we will see an extra register that also contains people’s identity on digital media, and that it will be linked to the CPR number,” said Copenhagen Business School professor and researcher in public IT systems Kim Normann Andersen. “The government will...

    Rejected asylum seekers and other foreign citizens facing deportation due to criminality at the controversial Kærshovedgård expulsion center failed to meet registration requirements on thousands of occasions, according to a report. Residents at the Jutland center are not incarcerated, but are required to live at the center and register with authorities there up to seven times weekly. But registrations have been missed 10,057 times since the center was opened in 2016, Central and West Jutland Police have confirmed, according to a report by newspaper Jyllands-Posten. Some have absconded completely, while others have absented themselves for long or short periods before...

    Christian Friis Bach, who served as Under-Secretary-General with the UN from 2014-17, has criticized the intergovernmental organization, saying individual countries have too much power. The high influence wielded by countries within the UN prevents necessary aid from being provided during conflicts, Bach said in an interview with Politiken on Friday. The UN has said it recognizes the points raised by the former Under-Secretary-General. The UN is incapable of acting or leading effectively with its current organization, said Bach, who was also executive secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe until May 2017. “Once member states and bureaucracy are...

The presidents of the umbrella groups of Jewish communities in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland issued the unusual warning Tuesday in an open letter to all Icelandic lawmakers in reaction to the submission last month of a bill proposing to ban all nonmedical circumcision of boys younger than 18 in Iceland, a Scandinavian island nation of some 300,000 people with a few hundred Jews and Muslims.
