"I remember the day after Sep11, I stopped a fight that was about to break out between some of my colleagues and some Danes. "

That one sentence says it all. If you were in fact born in Denmark, you are a Danish citizen and therefore a 'Dane'. You seperate yourself from the country who had tried to provide a better life for your family. Who is being discriminated against there? You are drawing the lines of racisim yourself Sammy.

Muslims have been seeking political asylum on false pretenses for decades now. The European governments are finally opening their eyes to the fraud committed by the people of your religion. How can a person flee their homeland in fear for their life, but return yearly for vacation? Send their son's to be 're-educated'..in other words get the terroristic training only provided in the homeland and still come back with their hands held out. Now, when the government starts to crack down on these underhanded con artists everyone screams racisim. I believe it is the Muslims themselves who are the biggest perpretrators in the act of racisim, not the Europeans. Who are the largest group behind raping? Muslim men. Who are their victims? Non-muslim women. A group so small in percentages and yet they make up the larger percent of criminals. Are you really shocked that Danes would treat you differently? Can you blame them? It is ok for you and the likes of you to seperate yourselves from the natives of the 'host' country, but the minute your 'hosts' do the same, it becomes 'racisim'. I don't understand that concept.

I'm sorry to have to be the one to tell you this, but your cousin's parents must have some pretty "right-winged" opinions of non-Danes. Children that young don't analyse so deeply into things. So this fear must have been induced by her parents or someone in the family, because why on earth would she refer to them as "those" people?

You are so far off base with that statement. I found out why the fellings were so with my cousin. It had nothing to do with my uncle or aunt. My aunt happens to be a child psycologist fyi. The feelings my cousin felt so long ago stems from the treatment her and her brother were exposed to by Muslim parents of children they went to school with. It stems from the 'us and them' attitude these children were faced with. Danish children not allowed to play with Muslim children. If they were caught playing together in parks or playgrounds even in school, the Muslim father would flip out. And heaven forbid if the Muslim child was a female. The beatings these kids would recieve were very terrifying for my cousins.

Americans have long been suspicious of the arrogent, coward, sadistical radicals of the Islamic nations. But it took the thousands of deaths that occoured druing the attacks of 9/11 to wake the rest of the world up.

The discrimination you were subjected to are a result of the ungratefulness of your people. I can't imagine any Muslims in Europe would be surprised. If they are in fact surprised, then they are quite stupid.
