To Arabchristian:

You say that Danes should deport all Islamic extremists.

What is the difference between an extremist and a moderate muslim. In my opinion, very little. Beliefs of both of them are identical; they have the same source for their beliefs.

Extremists are action-oriented; moderates watch the actions of their extremist brethern on TV and cheer them up. That is about all the difference between the two groups.

So, if Danes have to deport extremist muslims, they will have to deport every single muslim from Denmark. But then what is the difference between a Danish muslim and a muslim from other countries in Europe. None, really.
