Demonstrations, arrests and assaults in Denmark
Yesterday, as you probably all know, saw the Danish, Swedish and Norwegian embassies in Syria burned down by moslem fanatics. An attack on the French embassy failed.
Here in Denmark, the headlines were grabbed by the competing demonstrations over the Mohammed drawings and the accompanying islamic boycot. In Hillerød, the far rightwing organisation Danish Front had arranged a demo that, according to the police, drew some 25-30 protestors, among them the head of the Danish nazi party. As a result, everybody else stayed away, and the far counter-demonstration by leftist radicals and moslem immigrants in the same city had little to protest against.
Maybe because of that, they began bombarding the police with bricks. As Politiken puts it:
The tense atmosphere in the northern Zealand town increased, when a group of about 100 persons of immigrant background and activists from the left (ie: leftwing extremists - Henrik) threw bricks, branches and bottles at the police, who defended themselves with teargas and batons. At the same time, an elderly lady tried cooling down tempers by pouring water on the activists from her second-floor window.
Before that, moslems and rightwing radicals had clashed in Copenhagen´s central rail station, leading the police to intervene with batons. In all, the two clashes produces 162 arrests, 110 leftwing radicals and the rest mostly moslem immigrants.
Another moslem demonstration in Copenhagen drew about 150 protestors in the Townhall Square. As Politiken puts it:
The demonstration itself, against he mohamed-drawings on the Townhall Square saturday, developed peacefully, but lost some of the peacefulness, when a couple protestors recognized the controversial pakistani author and journalist Mohammad Rafiq.
Mohammad Rafiq wrote a book on forced marriages, and has been unwelcome in extreme moslem circles since then. Today he was in the Townhall Square taking pictures of the demonsration, when three second generation immigrants assaulted him and smashed his camera and cell phone.
Elsewhere in Denmark, a hot dog vendor was attacked by to turks between 18 and 20 years of age. Says Jyllands-Posten:
"Danish pig. You sell impure meat".
Allegedly, that is how the words were uttered, when a hotdog vendor in Frederiksberg (neighbourhood of Copenhagen - Henrik) was assaulted friday afternoon by two young men with foreign backgrounds, carrying a baseball bat.
Before that, the two men had asked the vendor for two pieces of bread, but when the vendor passed them over the counter, one grabbed his hands, while the other hammered the vendor´s hands with the bat, beating them bloody.
Elsewhere, the 12-year-old son of a moslem who has has asked for moderation was similarly assaulted by three foreign teenagers. The father has received several death threats.
