And what could possibly go wrong?
Denmark’s second largest city is attempting to tackle terrorism by offering jihadists “empathy” in a programme dubbed “hug a terrorist”.
Whilst Danes who have fought against Islamic State have been threatened with jail on their return from Syria, terrorists are being offered enormous privileges, including apartments, education, and jobs, to encourage them to rejoin society.
Proponents of the police-run scheme in Aarhus say that jihadists are “isolated” and struggling to integrate, and claim that offering them kindness and forgiveness will deter them from their murderous ideology.
However, Danish politician Naser Khader, a Muslim born in Syria, says it sends the wrong message and rewards terrorists who have effectively made war on the West and its values.
He told Australian news programme Dateline the “hug a terrorist” model tells young Muslims: “Go out and do something criminal, be jihadis, you will get a lot of privilege from the society. That’s wrong in my opinion.”

Shakespeare’s Hamlet would agree: Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
Since the self-proclaimed Conservative party Venstre (meaning “Left”) with their slogan “Denmark’s Liberal party” took power in June 2015, the number of rapes reported to the police has soared by a shocking 196 percent, according to the Danish state’s bureau of statistics.
In 2015, Omar El-Hussein listened to the imam Hajj Saeed, at the Hizb-ut-Tahrir- linked Al-Faruq-mosque in Copenhagen, decry interfaith dialogue as a “malignant” idea and explain that the right way, according to Mohammed, is to wage war on the Jews. The next day, El-Hussein went out and murdered Dan Uzan, the volunteer Jewish guard of the Jewish community, as he was standing in front of the Copenhagen synagogue. El-Hussein had also just murdered Finn Nørgaard, a film director, outside a meeting about freedom of speech.
Bureaucrats should not go about making orders they cannot enforce. It
serves no purpose other than to make the bureaucrats look ridiculous.
Here is a case in point: Brussels Orders EU Countries to SCRAP Internal Checks Within Six Months.
In an announcement tonight, eurocrats said there was no justification for keeping police checkpoints at frontiers within the
bloc and said they must be removed by the end of the year.
From the outside looking in, the Danish economy appears as blissful as the country itself, which usually tops “The Happiness Index.” The unemployment rate ticked down to 4.2% in the most recent release from 4.3% in 2016. Denmark, ranked 20th in economic complexity in 2015, has a mostly even trade balance, and $50K GDP per capita in 2016, making it among one of the richest nations in the world.
Moreover, Danish GDP-per-capita growth led in the Nordics for the past ten years, from 2007 to 2016: Denmark +28.5%, Sweden +22.0%, Norway +14.6% Finland +12.2%. Although Denmark exports substantial agricultural and natural resource-based products, they are also major players in pharmaceuticals and machinery. Top companies include AP Møller-Mærsk, Novo Nordisk, Vestas, and Danske Bank, representing shipping, pharma, clean energy, and finance.
The whole world is on the brink, but most people have not realized that yet.

DENMARK should ban headscarves in schools, have stricter controls on migrants and leave the European Union, according to the leader of the country’s newest far-right party.
Pernille Vermund plans to overhaul Danish politics and provide a new challenge to the government in local elections later this year.
The 41-year-old leader of Nye Borgerlige or ‘The New Right’ has called for stricter controls on migrants and refugees and wants a ban on headscarves in schools and public institutions.
Denmark has discovered that dozens of its citizens fighting for Islamic State have continued to receive cash benefits. According to local media the government somehow expects jihadists to pay the improperly distributed funds back.
COPENHAGEN (AFP) – Danish police said Monday they found the bodies of a slain Syrian refugee and her two young daughters in a freezer in their apartment, as they launched a manhunt for the girls’ father.
The bodies of the 27-year-old mother and her seven and nine-year-old daughters were found inside a freezer in their apartment in the southern Danish town of Aabenraa after a concerned relative had not heard from them for days.
The below story also shows how little security Danes (and American tourists) have now, because the police are overwhelmed by Muslim crime and terror.
Translated from Berlingske:
On October 1st 2016 at 03am, our 30-year-old son and his four friends (three US citizens and a Danish friend) were assaulted by 8-10 masked ethnic youths (Danish media slang for Muslims) a few meters from our son’s home.
A new report from the national commissioner of police in Denmark states organized migrant criminal gangs have become more numerous, more specialized and pose a greater threat than ever before.
A large police operation in February of 2015 in the region of Zealand and Lolland-Falster in Denmark led to the search of over 60 addresses by over 400 officers. the raid revealed the largest smuggling ring in the history of the country and consisted primarily of foreign migrants.
Charges against foreign criminals have more than doubled since 2009 and police worry that they are to blame for rising crime rates as domestic offending is declining, reports Danish paper Berlingske.
THE Danish Nationalist Party has sparked outrage after it took to the streets to hand out “refugee spray”, claiming it is both “legal and effective”.

Sweden, Denmark, and Austria are seeking tough new powers to deter migrants, the latter two proposing to instantly turn back so-called asylum-seekers at their borders.
The Austrian government announced Tuesday they are receiving advice on how to turn back migrants within an hour, as well as capping the number of asylum requests it accepts, EurActiv reports.
On the same day, the Danish government proposed a law giving police the power to reject “asylum seekers” at their borders in times of crisis – times such as last year, when a million strong wave arrived after the German Chancellor suspended the Dublin agreement and invited unlimited numbers into the continent.
- “All the bullying happens in Arabic… The hierarchy of the Arab boys creates a very violent environment. … I have filmed the particularly vile bullying of a Somali boy. You can see the tears in his eyes. They are destroying him; it is very violent. “ — From a dissertation by Jalal El Derbas, Ph.D.
- Danish teachers are the least respected and are spoken of in denigrating and humiliating terms.
- “I am not saying that all the Arab children did ugly things, but we witnessed on a regular basis… using derogatory Arabic language towards Somalis and girls.” — Lise Egholm, former head of the Rådmandsgade school in Copenhagen.
- Whether Danish parliamentarians wish to acknowledge this problem or not, they are up against far wider issues than that of religious incitement in mosques by radical preachers.
After the television documentary, “Sharia in Denmark“, embarrassed Danish authorities by revealing how widespread the preaching of sharia is in mosques in Denmark; the Danish government, in May, concluded a political agreement about “initiatives directed against religious preachers who seek to undermine Danish laws and values and who support parallel legal systems.”
The horror of refugees getting away with raping European girls because politicians do not want to admit what they have done is just insane. However, this self-serving police is starting to give way. A 24-year-old refugee asylum seeker from Iran, not Syria, made an initial court appearance on Monday to face charges of having raped a 19-year-old woman over the weekend, as reported by the Danish news. Denmark may go down as the first country to actually criminally prosecute these people who just see young girls as sluts for the taking at their own desire. I cannot image the outrage of fathers and how these politicians have the guts to try to cover up this behavior.
