Something Rotten in Denmark and the West

Coming soon to a city near you?

Police in Copenhagen say they have shot dead a man they believe was behind two deadly attacks in the Danish capital hours earlier.

Police say they killed the man in the Norrebro district after he opened fire on them.

It came after one person was killed and three police officers injured at a free speech debate in a cafe on Saturday.

In the second attack, a Jewish man was killed and two police officers wounded near the city’s main synagogue.

Police say video surveillance suggested the same man carried out both attacks. They do not believe any other people were involved.

“We assume that it’s the same culprit behind both incidents, and we also assume that the culprit that was shot by the police task force… is the person behind both of these assassinations,” Chief Police Inspector Torben Molgaard Jensen told a news conference.

He said police would maintain a high presence in the city.

Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt said it was “a very sad morning” and described the shootings as “a cynical act of terror against Denmark”.

“I am happy and relieved that police have disarmed the alleged perpetrator behind the two shootings,” she said in a statement. “I will continue to encourage everyone to follow police instructions and be vigilant.”

Early on Sunday, police said they had been keeping an address under observation in the district of Norrebro, waiting for the occupant to return.

When he appeared, he noticed the officers, pulled out a gun and opened fire, police said. They returned fire and shot him dead. The incident happened near Norrebro train station.

Go here to read the rest.  The target of the first attack was thought by the police to have been Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks who was attending a free speech seminar in Copenhagen.  Go here to read an American Catholic post from 2010 written by Christopher Blosser on Vilks and his depictions of Muhammed.   Vilks was not harmed in the attack, but what is in mortal danger is that people may speak their mind in the West without having to worry about being murdered because of it.  In the contemporary West liberty frequently is confused with license.  Ironically the same cultural and political forces often behind this cultural movement have also sponsored open immigration that has allowed into the West groups who have contempt not only for license but also for liberty.  It would be bleakly funny if all the rest of us were not along for the ride.

  1. In dealing with these terrorists, the authorities, both in France and Denmark appear to be pursuing Turreau’s solution in the Vendée – “those who wish to die for their faith are being given every opportunity to do so.”

  2. Liberal progressive atheist Democrats and Islamic terrorists deserve each other. Sadly, millions of innocent people stand between them.
    .
    BTW, just as God allowed the utterly wicked Assyrians and Babylonians to punish the children of Israel and Judah for their rebellion, so also may He (because He does not change and always does the right thing in the right way) allow the utterly wicked Islamic terrorists to punish the liberal progressives for their equivocation of license with liberty. But the rain falls on the good and the bad.

  3. What is at stake here, too, is the principle of separation of church and state, as St. Thomas More said: “If he offends God, then let God arrest him.” The immortal soul of Mohammed does not need the death of any person to defend him. Allah does not need the death of any person to remain Allah. Islam is a theocracy as is the nation of Israel. If the nation of Israel can bring peace and prosperity to its people, what is Islam waiting for?
    Vengeance is mine saith the Lord.

  4. The man identified as the perpetrator, who was shot dead by Danish security police, was 22-yr-old Danish-born Omar Abdel Hadid El-Hussein, obviously born of Egyptian Arabic parents (he was heard shouting in Arabic when he killed film director Lars Vilk). The late shooter has an interesting name—apparently named for another Egyptian of note, the “Blind Sheik”, Omar Abdel Rahman. Hmmm. 1993, the year the late El-Hussein was born, the year he acquired his “patron-saint” patronymic, what was the Blind Sheik up to, so that his parents would want to have their baby boy follow in his steps? Oh, well, could be that was the year of the first World Trade Center bombing, of course master-minded by the BS.

    All a coincidence of course. Soon the heads of his mosque will come forward and assert he was a “mentally-ill young man, and not representative of Islam.” International press members are already calling him a “gang-member.” I agree: his gang’s street symbols are the Star and Crescent.

  5. Correction, I meant to say Finn Norgaard was the Swedish film director killed by El-Hussein, not Lars Vilk, who was a likely target…
