Democratic Moslems

One of the outcomes of the Mohammed controversy is, that Radical MP Naser Khader with a number of other moslem immigrants formed the organisation Democratic Moslems, with ambitions to go international at a later time.

As such a commendable initiative, if only more moslems actually chose to sign up. According to the last numbers mentioned in the press, the organisation had 900 members out of an estimated 200-250.000 moslems in the country.

Another thing I dont know what to think about is, that its "support-members" - non-moslems - are 13 times as numerous. In effect, moslems are a minority in their own organisation. They themselves acknowledge, that they dont have a majority of Danish moslems behind them.

One wonders what part of the organisation´s name that holds them back. "Democratic" or "Moslems".

UPDATE:

One additional detail about Democratic Moslems: despite the avowed non-political nature of the organisation, the opposition Social Democrats tried to get their members in it to present a solidt front, making it a mouthpiece for Social Democrat policy. It didnt work - the immigrant social democrats turned the suggestion down.
