I have a particular soft spot for Denmark. My favorite of all the countries on the blackhearted continent, I’ve long admired their courage, ethics, fortitude. They saved their Jews from the Third Reich, at great personal risk. And when I say they, I mean the King down to the average man on the street. Read my post, "Why I love Denmark" here;
From this it is possible to conclude that thousands – and perhaps tens
of thousands – of Danish citizens were involved, whether by deed or by
knowledge, in the smuggling of more than 6,000 Danish Jews to Sweden. A
great many of them did this in the clear knowledge that it was liable
to cost them their lives. They knew very well what had happened during
the previous 10 years in neighboring Germany and they were prepared to
risk everything. Thus Denmark became the only country in occupied
Europe where nearly all the Jews – 99 percent – were saved.
…..when they [ the Danish Jews – ed] returned home to Copenhagen
they were surprised to find that the neighbors had scrupulously kept
watch over their house and their possessions. They had even watered and
tended the plants in the garden. Read it all
It seemed absurd that the most open, liberal country would give birth to the cartoon jihad.
So it is with great sadness that I post this piece, courtesy of Peter von Schlichtningen, former humanist and current Atlas reader, from his blog hmmh here;
The Danish newspaper, Jyllandsposten, the originator of the cartoons, today has
an article with this title:
Danish Jews are met with
harassment (article in Danish)
It takes time to translate, so let me
- Danish Jews feel intimidated and are afraid to show their identity while
being in the public
- Jews fear verbal and physical aggressions by Muslims
- At the synagogue the guards warn Jews leaving the synagogue to remove head
dress and the star of David
- Jews no longer feel safe putting their children in Danish schools because of
the Muslim children
- A Danish teacher of Jewish ancestry applying for a position was told by the
headmaster of a Danish public school it would be better to change his name to
something innocuous. He did not take the job
Let me tell you something
about the Jews in Denmark. They have been in Denmark for generations. Some for
hundreds of years. They are as Danish as any Dane. You can not distinguish them
by sight or language. The only major distinction may actually by the many
accomplishments of Danish Jews. They are a part of Danish culture and I count
many as friends.
We are in December, 2006, and Danes have to hide in the
streets because of a faith or just a name? Their children cannot attend school
paid by the tax payers, paid by the children’s parents? They need guards at
their places of worship? Danes are persecuted by strangers at home? Read the rest here.
A grave situtation. Ghastly.
