Hi Danish/american,

You said the Muslims expect the Danish government to build mosques. Well if that is the case then I agree it's not up to the Danish government to build mosques for Muslims. I didn't know what was the case.

As for you Sword, you said there are 200 mosques in Denmark accoring to the Guardian:

"But Copenhagen's local authorities are working actively in trying to find affordable land for a mosque. It was one of the main themes in the recent local elections and an ambitious architectural project that includes a mosque was presented last week. Even so, there are around 200 well-attended mosques in Denmark, though most of them were originally built as warehouses, factories and apartment buildings. And land has already been found near Copenhagen for what will be the first Muslim-only cemetery in the country - many cemeteries in Denmark already include special Muslim sections."

I would hardly call makeshift "mosques" made from abandoned warehouses, factories and apartment builds mosques. Please back your statements up with proper sources next time.
