On Wednesday our Swedish correspondent LN reviewed Storm Over Europe, and the post prompted commenter Evan to ask this question:
Does the book try to rigorously calculate the ethnoreligious breakdown of Denmark or anyplace else in Europe? If so, I would like to learn what their estimates are. One hears people carelessly throwing figures around like “Sweden is already 20% Muslim” and so on. I know the CIA estimates that France is about 10% Muslim. And Mark Steyn claims, without any documentation, that among young French the percentage is vastly higher. But the whole issue is shrouded in politically correct obscurity.
I asked Steen of Snaphanen if he had any idea of what the answer might be. Here is his reply:
– – – – – – – – – –
No one knows the real figure. Until now we have not listed people by religious belief. In the book Tabita Wullf discusses the holes in the statistics.
However — it is estimated that Denmark has around 2-300,000 (made after a count of Muslim names).
For Sweden, estimates lie around 3-500,000. Norway, I don’t know.
But anyone can speculate, as no one knows. Therefore it is also a time-consuming matter to look into, as Fjordman seems to know.
The answer from her — too many, anyhow.
all the best — Steen
I’ve used Steen’s numbers and the latest population figures I could find for the two countries to calculate the percentages:
I know these are going to cause a lot of argument — it’s clear that many Danes think these estimates are too low. Let’s hope that our commenters can point the way to some new sources of information.
