An American's Experiences with Muslims in Europe

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by David King (United States), Aug 8, 2004 at 17:17

I studied in Copenhagen and France as an exchange student in 2002. One semester was in Copenhagen, the other was in Paris. Overall, it was the best time of my life.

But the only unpleasant experiences I had were with young Pakistani and Turkish guys. Several times in Copenhagen, my girlfriend was grabbed and harrassed by them in the bars, who called her a "whore" and tried to sexually assault her. It led to several fights between myself and these Muslims hooligans. Once, when I was walking through Norrebro, they heard me speaking English to my friend and started throwing rocks at me for no reason. When I reported it to the police and US Embassy, I was just told to not speak English is that neighborhood.

In France, it was the same thing, although there are neighborhoods I did not go to (and even the French police will not go to). All filled with muslims.

I cannot believe these people are being allowed to basically violate laws with no consequence.
