The Copenhagen attacks are being regarded as a copy of the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris. The violence should now be followed by a critical debate on political Islam.
The Copenhagen shooter probably modeled his attacks on those in Paris, the Danish police quickly concluded. There is supposedly a three-fold similarity to the shootings which took place in January at Charlie Hebdo and at a Jewish supermarket shortly afterward: First the attack on freedom of speech, then against Jewish citizens and, ultimately, the final shootout with the police. The security authorities in Europe are reacting nervously, politicians are reassuring each other of assistance and support, and the Danish prime minister is swearing to fight against all who want to attack the free and open Danish society. The overall feeling, however, is a certain helplessness. And when, shortly after the Copenhagen shootings, a Carnival parade in Braunschweig is cancelled, is it because of fear and anxiety? Or was there concrete evidence of a planned attack?
No compromise on civil liberties
Despite all justified caution, even if the police actually have concrete evidence, we cannot let our daily lives be restricted by Islamists who are waging a war on our civil society, our customs and our way of life. In principle, after each of these attacks, a call must prevail in defense of freedom of speech, the same call heard at the impressive demonstration in Paris: “We are not afraid.” That is admittedly not so simple, but those who allow themselves to be ruled by fear in these circumstances have already lost.
A well intentioned load of the ususal Euro-Mush that fails to recognize that Islam not “radical Islam” is the root of the problem.
Islam is a settler blueprint diametrically opposed the liberal-left’s preferred narrative of multiculturalism and open door immigration.
