Whither Goest Europe?


A radio station in Denmark proposed that the extent of radical Islamist infiltration of the Danish populace is so extensive that there are only two possible ways to solve the problem at this point; one is the mass expulsion of Muslims, and the other is to kill all extremist Muslims.

In a separate story the Danish branch of Hizb ut-Tahrir put out a flier calling for Muslims to kill Danish authorities and members of the Danish military.

The radio station immediately had their license suspended. Meanwhile, the Danish government is "looking to find a legal way" to ban Hizb ut-Tahrir.

Now, note the distinctions in this story. The West, whether we want to admit it or not, is at war with Islamofascists, or to put it another way, we are at war with extremist Islam. So, a Danish radio station proposes two ways to deal with that fact; One, which does not involve killing Muslims, and the other which calls for killing only "extremist" Muslims.

Hizb ut-Tahrir called for the killing of Danish people with no distinctions, no contingencies. Just kill them.

Danish society has a way to deal with one problem, but not the other? How could that be? Isn't it clear that what Hizb ut-Tahrir did was worse than what the radio station did?

Go read the story from BBC.
