In the comments on yesterday’s post, two commenters with inside knowledge of Danish affairs left us some interesting information. I’ve cleaned up the spelling, syntax, and punctuation to present their comments here.
First, here’s Yorkshireminer:

What is really interesting is what has been happening in Denmark.The Danes seem to have got their second wind, and dumped dhimmitude.
Kurt Westergaard [the cartoonist who drew the turban-bomb Mohammed] gave an interview for a Danish paper a couple of weeks ago including his picture, and said that he hadn’t been in hiding and had just carried on as if nothing had happened. Laban the Imam who started the row has been backpedaling for all he is worth and puts his foot in it every time he opens his mouth.
I read in one Danish Blog (I wish I could remember where) that when he was traveling on a bus in Copenhagen, an old lady getting off the bus turned round and said to him, “You are a very stupid man,” and the bus cheered.
A cabinet minister is supposed to have accused somebody in public of lying like an Imam. If only that phrase could come into general use here in the west. Wafa Sultan has given a speech for the Democratic Muslim association, here is the video link.
The best selling book at the moment is a book written by Karen Jespersen og Ralf Pittelkows Called ‘Islamister og naivister’ I think you can work out the meaning of the title for yourselves. Both [writers] have been in the Danish Government and I think one was a minister.
So for Denmark things are looking up.
Then Phanarath responded with this:
The man who was accused of “lying like an imam”, or as he put it: “speaking with two tongues like an imam” was the Socialist mayor of the city I live in, Århus. His reaction was to say: “That’s a very rude comparison.”
The Democratic Muslim association “Demokratiske Muslimer” where the Video was taken, have really been brave. They have been getting a lot of harassment, mostly on an individual level, from other Muslims, the non-democratic ones I suppose. The organization was created as a result of the Motoon-crisis.
I don’t think anything will happen tomorrow. They have had their fun, and it made Islam much more unpopular than it was. Many people who didn’t have an opinion before have one now, and it’s not good.
