A Danish Muslim politician wants to build a bridge of understanding between Muslims and persons of Danish background while educating his co-religionists. He has decided to celebrate the Danish tradition of free speech as he reaches out to Muslims everywhere.
And what tactic has he chosen?
Why, to insult Queen Margrethe, of course!
Our Danish correspondent CG has translated this article from today’s Avisen.dk:
Social Democrat: Freedom of Speech is the Queen as a Whore!
In an open letter to all the Muslims in the world the Danish-Moroccan politician explains that it is perfectly legal to portray our queen as a whore and a porn star.
Hamid El Mousti has started his own campaign of information in which he describes what freedom of speech is all about. He wants to spread it to every Muslim in the world [all 4.65 billion trillion of them — translator].
He explains what freedom of speech means in Denmark:
- “It’s allowed to portray the Queen as a whore.”
- “Porn stars are elected to the Danish parliament.”
- “Religion does not play much of a role among Danes.”
- “Pedophiles are allowed in Denmark.”
- “Nazis are allowed in Denmark.”

“I just want to tell all Muslims in the world how it is to live in a country like Denmark. They don’t know s**t about freedom of speech so we, the Danish Muslims, should teach them how to create mutual understanding. And what I write here is the truth. Isn’t it?”
He agrees that this is not a picture of nuance, but that is not the goal, he says.
“I definitely did not write this to provoke, but I have no reason to wrap it up in a long article. I have chosen the form that in very short terms explains how it is to live in the West. It is pure enlightenment, which is meant to prevent Muslims all over the world from getting upset again when they see the Prophet depicted as a dog,” Mousti explains to Avisen.dk
“Oh, and by the way — sild tastes like camel dung, Danish beer tastes like cold goat urine, and København smells like an open sewer.
“What’s a little free speech among friends, right?”
