The demography of Denmark.

Posted by Exile on September 29, 2006

I got myself into a discussion with a friend the other day about just how many immigrants we have in Denmark, how many there are from Europe, and non-western countries. We also discussed the growing immigrant population and how long will it be before we all have to grow beards and run around in turbans. Well, we didn’t get all to the way to the end of the discussion and it left me thinking, just how does it really look? Are we being totally overrun by mussies in headcloths? Or is it so gradual that we still have time to stem the tide? I signed up to Denmarks statistics and had a quick go at our present demography. There is a mound of information, but not developed after religion as far as I can see. However, non-western countries are in the index so I decided to start there.

I took the population of Denmark from 1996 to 2006. It grew from 5.25 million to 5,43 million. An increase of 3,3%.

I then took the immigrant population from non-western countries and their descendants. Over that same ten year period, that population grew from 196,2 thousand to 327,5 thousand. An increase of 40%.

I then subtracted the immigrant numbers from the national total population, which gives me the native population. Over the same ten years, that population grew from 5,04 million to 5,09 million. An increase by a mere 0,9%.

Which means that of the 3,3% increase in the total poulation over the last ten years, more than two thirds is immigrant.

The immigrant population now comprises 6,0% of Denmarks total population. They number 327,503 according to the latest figures I can get.
If anyone would like a copy of the broadsheet, drop me an e-mail. There is an e-mail caption you can use near the the top of my sidebar.

All very well and perhaps a little interesting to some, if not all. It raises a few questions for me though. Knowing that not all immigrants are muslims, and knowing that 6% is a minimal part of the population, why do we have to give so much consideration to that section of the population? And while I think about that, what other country would consider changing any of it’s laws to accomodate less than a mere 6%?
The worrying thing is, that the immigrant population is growing and they are reproducing much faster than the native population. There is a long way from thousands to millions, but it will go proportionately faster as their presence in the population increases. I believe there is time to do something about this, but I must confess that I am at a bit of a loss as to what. Apart from repatriation, we have little to do but wait and see. Or perhaps now would be a good time to close our borders to the muslim immigrants and hope that we can control the present population by law and integration.

The problem is, that we let the first ones in, they began to reproduce, and now we are stuck with them. The damage has been done.

And not just in Denmark…..

Musharaf under fire again.

Posted by Exile on September 28, 2006

General Pervez Musharaf, the Pakistani President, is not having a good week. Not only have the details of the “Bombed back to the stoneage” by the USA affair been released for all to see, but now the British are having a go.
A report which was leaked to the BBC states that the Pakistani intelligence service is in cahoots with Al-Queda and the Taliban.
Musharaf is fuming. He categorically dismisssed the charges and intends to discuss this with Tony Blair during the current round of talks between the two countries.
The report was made by an unnamed source who is described as having a military background and links to MI6, and who travelled to Pakistan in June with a delegation on a factfinding visit. That ought to narrow the field for all the would-be detectives out there. Here’s a little extract:

The British policy of supporting President Musharraf because he provides greater stability is flawed because Pakistan is “on the edge of chaos”, the document claimed. It added: “Indirectly Pakistan, through the ISI, has been supporting terrorism and extremism whether in London on 7/7 or in Afghanistan or Iraq.”

The report apparently echoes the United States report which was outed last week by some mischief maker, and the leaking of this one seems to be having the same effect. This has a conspiracy feel to it. Two reports, both relatively confidential and unfinished, both leaked ahead of time? In two seperate but heavily allied countries?
Draw your own conclusions.

The remark from Musharaf that really caught my eye is to be found at the end of the article from the Times:

The President said: “There’s no doubt that the London [bombers] … have some way or other come to Pakistan. But let us not absolve the United Kingdom from their responsibilities. Youngsters who are 25, 30-years-old and who happen to come to Pakistan for a month or two month and you put the entire blame on these two months of visit to Pakistan and don’t talk about the 27 years or whatever they are suffering in your country.”

Suffering? Oh yes. They had to suffer through school, and they suffered under the National Health program, and they suffered all the social benefits that someone else’s money could buy.

Poor suffering downtrodden BASTARDS.

More "poor palestinians".

Posted by Exile on September 27, 2006

The BBC is championing a report made by a South African born lawyer, John Dugard. He is reporting from Gaza and is described as a “UN expert on the Middle East conflict”. Whatever that may be. (Just what makes one and expert?) He is more than a little peeved at just about everybody for Gaza’s state of affairs. Everyone, that is, except the Palestinians.

Standards of human rights in the Palestinian territories have fallen to intolerable new levels, says a UN expert on the Mid-East conflict. John Dugard said Israel was largely to blame for turning Gaza into “a prison” and “throwing away the key”. He also criticised Canada, Europe and the US for cutting funds to Palestinian Authority, run by the Hamas militant group which does not recognise Israel.

Well pardon me, Mr Dugard, but I would rather describe Gaza as a zoo, not a prison. After all, that’s where one normally keeps wild animals. And why should independant countries support a government that only sees it’s neighbour as a target for destruction? The other similarity to a zoo, is feeding time.

Mr Dugard, UN special rapporteur on Palestinian human rights, said three-quarters of Palestinians in Gaza now depended on food aid – a result, he added, of Israeli military raids, blockades and demolitions.

If the Palestinians had put some effort into growing a few vegetables and building a few indusries, that wouldn’t be necessary. Instead of giving them money, with which they buy weapons, we give them food. It has nothing to do with blockades. As I have said before, you don’t build much with an RPG, you don’t plant many crops with an AK47. If they showed the same determination to support themselves as they do to the destruction of Israel, then they would be fine and wouldn’t need our “support” at all.
Mr. Dugard has more:

The situation – in the wake of Israel’s response to the capture of a soldier by militants from Gaza during a cross-border raid – is worse than at any time during my mandate, Mr Dugard said. More than 100 civilians have been killed in army raids and bombardments in the Gaza Strip. “What Israel chooses to describe as collateral damage to the civilian population is in fact indiscriminate killing prohibited by international law,” he said.

One can marvel at his political prowess. How may Israelis have been killed by suicide bombs? Ooh, not mentioned. Isn’t wanton murder of civilians illegal for a palestinian too? Ooh, not discussed. Is kidnapping not illegal anywhere? Is cross-border raiding not equally a crime? Ooh, not important. Well, not to our Mr. “UN expert” Dugard
This man is obsessed with a non-existant “international law”:

“Israel violates international law as expounded by the Security Council and the International Court of Justice and goes unpunished,” he said.

Sorry old chum. I tried looking up the “international law” on warfare and suppression of terrorist activities. Couldn’t find it. Anywhere. Neither will you. There isn’t one.
Meanwhile, he says, Palestinian people are punished for having democratically elected a regime unacceptable to Israel, the US and the EU.
“In effect, the Palestinian people have been subjected to economic sanctions – the first time an occupied people has been so treated,” he said.

An occupied people? I think he means “preoccupied”. Preoccupied with the destruction of their neighbours and their total lack of invention and unwillingness to take responsibilty for their own well being and existence in the Middle East. The Palestinians don’t need another mouthpiece like Dugard. They need a swift and well placed kick in the collective rear to get them up off it. If the Palestinians actually did something for themselves, instead of wallowing in hatred and self pity as they have done for the past sixty years, then none of this would be necessary. They do not have my sympathy. And they aren’t likely to get it unless they change.

Islamic antisemitism on the rise in Denmark.

Posted by Exile on September 26, 2006

Antisemitism is alive and well in Denmark. Much to our discontent. The Arab community, read Islamic community, is attacking and insulting our Jewish population. For some strange reason this really took off after 9/11 but quietened a lot within the next year.
What the Jews had to do with that islamic terrorist attack is beyond me, but there is no accounting for attitude.
However, the simple fact is, that the Jewish community is suffering under the weight of Islamic bombardment here. Simply wearing the skullcap is an advertisement for the would-be jihadis to attack. Verbally if not physically. Some have even received hate mail and death threats. Once again we see the “tolerant ” face of Islam.
In the first half of this year there have been thirty reported incidents of this abominable behaviour.

These thugs should be very careful. This country has preserved it’s Jewish community through worse times than these. Even the occupation of Denmark by the German Wehrmacht didn’t affect the Danish resolve. When the decree was given that Jews should wear the Star of David on their clothing, it became fashionable for everyone to do so. Including the King.

They may be Jewish, but they were born here and have a history in this land. They have existed side by side with the rest of Denmark, contributing to the community and generating wealth. Self supporting, hard working and demanding nothing from the state, almost unnoticed among us. Unlike their attackers. We have no Jewish “refugees”.
The behaviour of the Islamic community does not go unnoticed, nor will it be tolerated in the long run.

Attack our Jewish people, and you attack us all.

Saint Crispins day.

Posted by Exile on September 25, 2006

I like to think of it as “Battle of Agincourt day”!


In the words of the Bard, Mr. William Shakespeare:

KING HENRY V:

What’s he that wishes so?
My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin:
If we are mark’d to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires:
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England:
God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more, methinks, would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made
And crowns for convoy put into his purse:
We would not die in that man’s company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is called the feast of Crispian:
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say ‘To-morrow is Saint Crispian:’
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars.
And say ‘These wounds I had on Crispin’s day.’
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day: then shall our names.
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Harry the king, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remember’d.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember’d;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

Ah, now there’s a man who could tell a tale!

The BBC. Bias Beyond Credibility?

Posted by Exile on September 22, 2006

The BBC has gotten itself into a bit of bother with British muslims. The Beeb allowed islamic mouthpiece Abu Izzadeen to rattle and rant on it’s “Today” programme, on behalf of the more extreme elements of the muslim community in Britain. Apparently, the Muslim Council of Britain has really got it’s panties in a bunch, that he was neither challenged on his extreme views nor was he interrupted much by the interviewer. The “moderates” are seething with anger over this bit of one-sided journalism and have protested to the Beeb.

They are, perhaps, understandably upset, that this thug was given prime time to vent his spleen without any sort of balance from the more “peaceful” elements of British Islam. They fear that the interview will give ammunition to the masses and further the idea, that Islam is hell bent on the destruction of the UK. Which, as we all know, it is. I noted that the MCB is attacking the Beeb, not Izzadeen.

Actually, I applaud the BBC for this wonderful piece of journalistic exposure. Let’s not kid ourselves here. Anything that shines the light of truth on Islam can’t be bad. Presenting itself as a religion, while really being a murderous abberation, it is about time that more people heard the true voice of Islam and understood the threat therein.

No wonder the “moderates” are enraged.

This big mouthed jihadi let the cat out of the bag.

Honesty in politics.

Posted by Exile on September 21, 2006

I am sure we have all heard the term “political suicide”. Generally, the carrying out of any unpopular policy will be the end of a political career. For example, if you tell the Swedes that there isn’t enough money to hold up the welfare state and this will mean cutting benefits by thirty percent, and then do it, you are not a prime candidate for re-election in Sweden. No matter how much it is true and correct or necessary.
The Hungarian Prime Minister is now having to face the consequences of being honest. He was being candid in what he said, even if it was said in a somewhat clandestine environment that eventually leaked.
I wonder what prompted him to say it.
He probably only meant it as a wake up call to his failing government or his party political allies. He was telling them that we have “done nothing”, but in respect to what? Perhaps he was talking about the necessary monetary and social reforms that are absolutely necessary to Hungary that haven’t been made, simply because they would be unpopular with the electorate? Were the lies he so openly admitted to, meant solely as balm to the electoral mindset?

Which forces me to ask:

Do we really want honesty in politics? Or do we want to hear that all is well and that of course, everything is under control? How much “honesty” can we accept? And can we live with the consequences of allowing our politicians to do what is necessary, as opposed to what is comfortable, for us? Would we re-elect them if they did?
Think about that for a while. Then think of, maybe, Gorbatjov. He tried hard to reform Russia. So did Jeltsin. Not quick enough for some, too fast for others. Where are they now? But they did what was necessary at the time. There are doubtless other and better examples, but I think you get my point.

If our politicians were blatantly honest, and acted accordingly, I don’t believe they would last more than one term of office. They know this too. And that is perhaps why Europe and the US is slowly falling to bits under the weight of a “nanny state” mentality that will not be changed easily or quickly, if indeed ever, before it is too late to stop the hopeless collapse. It could be done, starting tomorrow. But the vast majority of the electorate would revolt at the ballot boxes, and new faces would have to be found to continue the process. Would they? I doubt it.
If religion was ever the opium of the people then it has been replaced now, by social welfare.

I think that self preservation will always overwhelm common good. I do not believe our elected leaders to be despotic, but at the same time, I do not believe that they are suicidal.
I think I understand Ferenc Gyurcsany perfectly. He knows what needs to be done. So do his political allies. But they aren’t going to be the ones to do it. Not unless the protesters outside the Hungarian Parliament become a support committee saying, “OK, you’re right. Do what you have to do. We accept the consequences”.

Honest politicians are not enough.

We have to have an honest electorate too.

Tolerant Saudi Arabia.

Posted by Exile on September 20, 2006

I fell over a little article today in Jyllands Posten, wherein the subject of Christmas was mentioned. Now, this may seem a little early for most of us, even though Christmas is getting to be THE celebration of the year and starts at least one week earlier each year. Or so it appears. However, this was not related to the economic bonanza that we normally connect with Christmas nor did it have much to do with the church.
It simply stated that the Saudis have totally banned any mention of Christmas, or the instruction of anyone as to what Christmas is, or represents. Why? You may ask. Well, it’s very simple. Christmas is insulting to Islam. And to Saudi tradition. As it happens, some private schools were teaching what Christmas represents and they have now been ordered to stop this infidel activity.
Saudi is the only land in the world where it is absolutely forbidden to follow any other religion than Islam.
Why do I not hear the UN, Greenpeace, Amnesty international and all the other leftist mouthpieces decrying this state of affairs? Imagine the response from these people if a western government decided to outlaw the holding of, or instruction in the holding of, Ramadan?
Why is it, that the arab nations can get away with saying and doing exactly as they wish, to the point of being grossly insulting and threatening, while we are bound by the idiotic political correctnes of our own creation, that we dare not protest?

I just wondered. Why this double standard?

My suggestion is, that we ban Ramadan in the west as an unholy infidel practice and an insult to Christianity and western tradition. That instruction in the holding, and celebrating, of it be made illegal.

Watch Kofi and the ummah go bananas on this one. Can you imagine the mayhem? The protests? And the burning of half the world’s embassies?

Let’s start the protest movement.

Ban Ramadan in the west.

Any takers?

Hungarian revolution, again.

Posted by Exile on September 19, 2006

Ferenc Gyurcsany has suffered a sudden attack of honesty. The repercussions of this could well mean the end of his political career, but he isn’t giving up without a fight. Despite protests and pressure from those around him to resign, he claims that he “absolutely will not” go from office voluntarily. The strange thing is perhaps, that all this was known way back in April shortly after the general election in Hungary. From the BBC:

His comments, which were recorded just after a general election in April, have prompted calls for his resignation from opposition parties. […] In excerpts broadcast on state radio, Mr Gyurcsany candidly admitted his government had accomplished “nothing” and had been lying for “the last year and a half to two years”.

“We lied morning, noon and night,” he said in a speech punctuated by obscenities.

I can’t help wondering if this is a general trait amongst the Left. We have experienced it here in Denmark. Social democrat Mogens Lykketoft lied to the Danes eight years ago about pensions and unemployment benefits. He also lied about not changing the conditions to qualify for early retirement. He was the Finance Minister at that point. His PM was Poul Rasmusssen. He did nothing to inform the population as to what their real intentions were. Once the elections were won, the tune changed dramatically. That, coupled with the useless immigration policies of that government eventually brought it down. And the social democrats haven’t gotten over it yet.
Denmark took a right turn four years ago, Sweden did it last weekend, finally showing the peoples discontent with a political system that was out of touch with reality. Germany is on it’s way. Again, during the last weekend, the right wing parties were scoring small victories in local county elections. Are we finally seeing a change in European political order?
I wonder, how many others on the Left are following the same dishonest tactics? That the Hungarian PM can boast that all the Left ever did in the last four years was to stay in power and did that only by lying to the population, makes me shudder. Could it be that others are following in the same tracks all over Europe? I can’t help but notice, that governments say one thing and do another. Again and again. Isn’t it about time we broke the Leftist hold on European politics once and for all? Personally, I find it a bit wearing and tiresome, to be told again and again, what is good for me and what is not, by people who have no idea of how I view life or the living of it. I don’t mind living in a democracy, and I will gladly go for the common best, but if that “democratic” power is built on a lie or on, at the very least, an untruth, then I would gladly see the system rebooted. This not merely based on immigration problems. It is finance and attitude and perhaps a little nationalism. The people will not be lied to. Who was it who said, “You can’t fool all of the people all af the time”? I think many have been fooled for long enough. The truth will out.
The EU politicians should take note of what is going in Hungary right now. It might prompt them to be a little more open and honest about what they plan, say and what they do. If the rioting in Budapest is anything to go by, a similar revolt here in Europe, while perhaps being needed and indeed welcomed by some, will be earth shattering.
This is not over yet. I will be following this closely for a while, in my own quiet way.
