Denmark: Syrian “asylum seeker” gets jail for terror planning

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) – A Syrian asylum seeker in Sweden received Monday a 12-year prison sentence for planning to explode one or more bombs in the Danish capital of Copenhagen and stabbing random people with kitchen knives.

Al Zoebi had an accomplice, Dieab Khadigah, who was sentenced in Germany in July 2017 to a prison term of six-and-a-half years.

Free Speech in Denmark

In Denmark, in recent weeks, the issue of free speech has figured prominently in the news.

This March, an outspoken critic of Islam, Jaleh Tavakoli, Danish-Iranian blogger and author of the book, Public Secrets of Islam, was threatened by the Social Supervisory Authority (Socialtilsyn Øst) that her foster-daughter would be removed from her care after Tavakoli shared an online video of the rape and murder by Islamic State terrorists in Morocco of two Scandinavian young women. She was informed in a letter that the government agency’s approval of her husband and her as foster parents — they had been raising the 8-year-old since she was a newborn baby — had been rescinded and that the girl might be taken away from them, as the authority did not consider them to “have the necessary quality to have children in your care.”

Denmark in a State of Unreported Collapse

The media portrayal of Denmark as a country hostile and inhumane to migrants is misleading, if not completely false.

One reason for the inaccurate picture is that it is painted by journalists’ political bias. Another is that trustworthy official Danish statistics on the country’s immigration problem are both difficult to find and even harder to interpret. A further problem is a lack of reliable research, at best; and purposely distorted data, at worst.

Repatriation Instead of Integration: Denmark Passes ‘Paradigm Shift’ Asylum Bill

According to the policy, refugees should be sent home when conditions in their countries of origin are deemed safe enough for this to occur. The bill also implies a reduced integration allowance and limited opportunities for family re-unions for immigrants. Also, residence permits will become temporary as a rule, and it will become easier to withdraw them or not extend them.

As Danish Finance Minister Kristian Jensen put it, Denmark will no longer have a system where “refugees become immigrants”.

Despite an increase in people moving out of the country, Denmark has seen a net increase in population owing to immigration, a development experts are not too happy with, when other factors such as age demographics and the labour market are weighed in.

A total of 68,645 people (70 percent of whom were foreigners) emigrated from Denmark, with Americans leading the exodus, followed by Poles.

What the Left Gets Wrong About Denmark’s ‘Immigration Crackdown’

…However, Denmark’s relation with immigrants and refugees may be described as “abused hospitality”. As Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen put it, “there are many who abuse our hospitality, challenge our way of living and put tolerance at risk”. In 1983, there were about 60,000 non-Western immigrants in Denmark. By 2018, their number has risen to almost 500,000 in a nation of 5.6 million. Since 2013, Syrians, Afghans, and Eritreans have made up the largest share of asylum seekers in Denmark. This has left a deep mark on the social fabric of Danish society.

Denmark: “In One Generation, Our Country Has Changed”

Denmark made international headlines in late November 2018, when the Danish government announced a plan to send certain asylum seekers to the small, uninhabited island of Lindholm. The international outrage was intensified when it came to light that the island currently houses a research center for contagious animal diseases; that the ferry which the asylum seekers will be able to take to the mainland during the day (it does not operate in the evening) is named “Virus”; and that the asylum center will be accompanied by a constant police presence on the island.

The group of asylum seekers meant to live in Lindholm consists of criminals of various sorts, including those who have been sentenced to be deported from Denmark, those who are considered a security threat to Denmark, and so-called “foreign warriors”.
