Denmark was once a country with an extremely liberal immigration policy. Today it has one of the strictest in Europe. Why? A recipe for social disaster was at play in Denmark. Take a very liberal post-World War II immigration policy, combine it with a very generous welfare program, mix in Muslim immigrants demonstrating a stubborn unwillingness to integrate into Danish society while enjoying welfare status, add a dash of reality that that Muslim population is rapidly outgrowing the native one, and it does not take long to create a bankrupt state nurturing an anti-democratic guest population and seeking to eventually replace the host country’s laws and culture with its own. Susan MacAllen, an American citizen who lived in Denmark, last year wrote a fascinating, but frightening, article for Family Security Matters providing specifics as to how this happened and the steps being taken to reverse course.
Supporting MacAllen’s concerns are statistics from a 2002 article by Daniel Pipes and Lars Hedegaard. They point out that Danish Muslims, while making up only five percent of the population, consume 40% of welfare spending and are responsible for a disproportionately high percentage of the nation’s crime. Recognizing increasing population numbers favor them, Muslim leaders “openly declare their goal of introducing Islamic law once Denmark’s Muslim population grows large enough.”
In appreciation of the Danish landlord opening up his home to an economically-depressed tenant to live rent free, the tenant shows his appreciation by now threatening to take over home ownership. As a result, not only have immigration laws been severely tightened, but there is even a prohibition against building mosques — used as centers to promote anti-Western values — because they were becoming hotbeds of hatred.
Dutch: 57 percent say ‘admitting large groups of Muslims is “the biggest mistake in Dutch history”
