Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by Gabriel Grosso (Italy), Jan 9, 2003 at 17:26

Muslim Extremists are preaching hatred in Denmark and this has provoked a serious backclash in terms of xenophobia. In other words, the Danes are now less tolerant and open-minded than they used to be. This group calling for the murder of all Jews needs to be banned. Throughout the years, British campuses adopted a policy called 'no platform'. This policy was used to prevent Nazi groups from operating on British campuses. The same thing is now going to be adopted for Militant Islamic organisations such as Al-Muhajiroun. Maybe Denmark should do the same and ban all groups that preach hatred.
