80 arrested after anti-Islam protest in Denmark


www.google.com

AARHUS, Denmark (AP) — More than 80 people were arrested Saturday as protesters hurling rocks and bottles tried to interrupt an anti-Islamic demonstration by far-right groups from across northern Europe, Danish police said.
There were numerous brief scuffles throughout the day as police tried to separate some 2,500 counter-demonstrators from a few hundred people attending the anti-Islamic rally in Aarhus, Denmark's second-largest city. One police officer received minor injuries...

Here it comes. Was about time that something like that happened. The news is not that spread out but is interesting to see how the demonstrators are being considered as a far right wing group while the violence started by the young muslims living in Denmark. The hypocrisy of the so called liberals under the guise of freedom of religion, coexistence, multiculturalism and diversity has shown one more time to be the key of all the issues Europe is facing today. After what happened in France is my guess that we're going to see more protests of this kind and the response from the muslims is going to be even more violent. Now Europe and the whole world has the possibility to see how ripped are the fruits of their ridiculous concepts of melting of culture and religion.

I read the article but I'm confused.

Who threw the rocks? The anti-Islamic group or the anti-anti-Islamic group?

ETA: Got my answer.

Why are the protesters of Islam, who were peaceful during the protest, the ones called right wing extremists?

Hence my remark about the hypocrisy. The same scenario we see in Britain, in France, in Germany and elsewhere. IMO the religion card is the one that is about to be played for future unrests. Social and cultural clashes has shown throughout history to be always a ticking bomb, ready to explode at will any moment, any time.

Am i the only one who saw the positive side in all this?




Police said about 200 to 300 people from Denmark, Britain, Germany, Sweden and Poland took part in what was billed as a "European counter-jihad meeting" to protest what they called the Islamization of Europe.


only 300 people turned out. And i really think its because hate isn't so widespread as some people try to make out.

wait does hating against hate count?

I would not want to be at a protest like that one.

I honestly do not know, which side I would be on.

You are correct, "nuts" was my own term. Thanks for pointing that out. S for you and I'll edit my original post.

What I found interesting was that the protest was peaceful on both sides until a group of young men began hurtling rocks. Perhaps it's simply the idealism and impulsivity of youth.

After the rally finished, protesters hurled rocks and bottles at a bus carrying the far-right sympathizers as police vans escorted it out of the city center



Hmmm, I'm curious. We've all seen the posts and replys claiming islam is this religion of peace and love

Let me see if I can spin this for islam. The counter protesters weren't throwing the rocks an bottles out of anger, no, the rocks were meant as a sign of love and the bottles were thrown out of peace.

But you just gotta love the bias of the press though, if your against islam, then your a far-right sypathizer.

And the irony is that if you protest peacefully in defence of cultural values and tradition, not throwing racist remarks, respecting the laws for a protest and voicing an opinion guaranteed by the constitution of all european countries, you are called a far right wing (alas extremist) group. But when someone throws rocks and bottles on you, they're called anti protesters. Makes me sick

i guess the danish can't wait to have their children taught about the joys and freedoms of sharia law
interesting that westerners are protecting people against religious and cultural bias, when the very people they are protecting, want to force all westerners to become muslim or put to death as an infidel. i don't know why this is so hard to understand?...their quran says it, their mullahs say it, their spokespeople say it, and they actively practice this religous facism in countries controlled by them.

Yes, hating hate does count depending upon your actions.

It seems to me that the ones hateing hate were the haters and causing the confrontation.

This is really boiling down to a cultrual war in my opinion.

The lessons of the past ought to make us aware of the correct response to a protest by a group of people who a prejudiced against people purely based on thier race, creed or colour. The last time Europe allowed a right wing group to infect it, and take control of it, the rest of the world had to show up at its door and hammer the psychotic, xenophobic scumbags that appeasement allowed to rise, back to the stone age.

The murderous savages almost took over the world, and, but for some terrible planning failiures and hideously timed actions, probably would have succeeded in turning the whole world into a blonde haired blue eyed and above all boring place to live, if it hadnt of been for the efforts of the Allied nations.

My angle is this. I do not consider it unpatriotic to accept that multiculturalism exists, and is something we must learn to live with. I believe that a failiure to learn to love one another as brothers, across the boundaries of faith is tantamount to treason against the interests of mankind as a whole. Because my grandfathers both knew the peril of allowing hate and unreasoning prejudice, having been tempered in the fires of war, fought against a right wing fascist agenda, and seen the devastation that hate wrought on those it targeted, I can safely say that as Christian as I am, I would have thrown more than rocks at those protestors. I would have walked among them like a spector of death, like a raging beserker, and gutted them all with out pause or remorse.

When one chooses to pit oneself against fairness, reason, and love for ones fellow man, one ought to expect to be bisected violently, and strewn about the place like confetti in a slaughterhouse. That any right wing extremism happens in Europe at all is an insult to my grandfathers, and every other set of grandfathers who fought hard, went mad, or died saving the world from a supremacist dictator back in the forties.

I would rather die in a Jihadist bombing, than allow one single white supremacist, neo nazi hatemonger to walk on land that was wrested from such people at such horrific cost , as those already paid.

The right wingers would have you believe that just because there is blood and thunder in the holy book of the Muslims, that the ENTIRE membership of that faith is a bloodthirsty savage, without pity, without mercy, and without compassion for his fellow man. That is of course, rubbish, utter nonsense, just as it would be if you said it about any other faith.

I would not say that I appreciate the laws of my own land being probed at with the intention of their usurpation at a future point by those looking to impose Sharia laws on British soil, because this land has laws already, and one is free to choose to live by them or move house. But just because an insane few would suggest such a thing, does not mean that the majority of Muslims would support it. I happen to know plenty of Muslims who would be horrified to have to live under what many of them consider to be the corrupted bastardisation of thier faith that such a system represents, just like I would be horrifed to be forced to attend a church full of middle class toffs who love nothing but their pocket books every Sunday under a tough Christian doctrine.

But I would say that the right wing extremism in Europe must be dealt with utterly BEFORE we start dealing legitimately with the extremism that comes from outside. I believe in pulling the log out of ones own eye, before examining the splinter in the eyes of my brother man. I apply the same rigour to politics. Crush the nazis first, and deal with the lesser (thats right, the LESSER) threat later.

Luckily here on ATS people deny ignorance and threads like this are created to support love and understanding between the cultures and religions.

Though I wonder what the OP wants to tell us. Is it "Throw stones first!" or "We haters always knew it!"?

If somebody organizes a demonstration against people who follow another religion, then he surely is an idiot. Probably right winged, yes. Who else would do such a stupid thing?

It's funny how "carefully" members read the OP. Who said the group was right winged? I mentioned more than once that it was labelled as such by media. They never claimed to be right wing nor part of any group (racial or political for that matter). So in spite of those beautiful standard phrases of love, coexistence, multiculturalism, peace and prosperity we're being feed up 24/7, I have to deny myself the right to express my free will, my opinion and concern as a citizen (without breaking the law, within the norms of civility) because someone is going to label me as racist, hater or intolerant, or even worst, considering my protest as the birth of a new Nazism? Are you even serious? So if some islamic extremists claim to want the Shariah Law implemented in my country (with all the implication that law brings), some of them rally on the streets and shout Death to UK (latest example) or similar slogans, I have to keep my mouth shoot and not "storm" on the street and express my concern as a citizen who feels that his culture is being threatened by a invading tendency culture, by a religion that has its foundation based on violence etc? Even when my protest is peaceful and conform the laws I still have to back down in the sake of the fake and in existent multiculturalism? I say fake and inexistent because I'm convinced that has failed and has created a very dangerous climate in European Countries, a social bubble, a time bomb that sooner or later is going to explode. There is no hate and especially no racism in my post. Is just an opinion based on a reality seen and touched in person. To little is being said in MMS. Deep down things are boiling to a very dangerous point.

Why?

Do people not have a right to be against religion? Do people not have a right to voice their opinion?

If anything, your statement strikes me as idiotic.

Perhaps to keep Sharia law from coming to your local area?

I am against religion. So what? I still can live in peace with my neighbors, who have their religion. I don't mind as long as they don't go against others who have a different religion. No need to fuss and fight until somebody starts to fuss and fight. Usually these are the same people as always.

Sharia. Yes, say this word and make all fearful people jump. Our law is old and stable. Only very frightened people believe that the Sharia could be the law to come.

How do you think, such things develope? Do you really think, someone says "Boo!" and then all traditions are wiped away by Sharia law?
