UPDATE: Commenter kepiblanc reports that the situation has changed.
Abu Laban just appeared on national Danish TV and withdrew his promise to leave the country.
No wonder he is called “The Snake-tongue’ed Imam” here in Denmark. Just proves the saying “never trust a Muslim”.
Laban giveth, and Laban taketh away. We’ll have to keep an eye on this story.
Reader KH has kindly translated this article in today’s Berlingske Tidende (original in Danish):
FLASH : Good news from Eurabia
Denmark’s most outspoken imam, Ahmed Abu Laban, leaves the country and plans to settle in Gaza. In a statement today, the imam condemns Denmark and the Danes for being intolerant and hostile towards human rights, especially considering Muslims. “Constantly being associated with terrorism and humiliation is unacceptable to me” he claims.
The Imam enjoys a 20 year long “refugee-status” in Denmark, but still holds a Palestinian passport. During those 20 years he refused to speak Danish. He played an instrumental role in the recent “cartoon jihad” and is generally considered “The face of Islam” in Denmark – soft speaking when on TV, but preaching hate and sharia in the mosque.
His decision to leave this country of infidels coincides with the present standstill in Muslim immigration – a consequence of the Danish government’s hard-line and restrictive immigration laws.
This is a very encouraging sign. The people who say that Eurabia can be rolled back may well be right.
