I’ve posted several times recently about the plight of the British blogger Lionheart, who is facing arrest when he returns to the UK.
Earlier today I received this email from the Danish blogger Anders Bruun Laursen:
Today I have mailed the following message to Prime Minister Gordon Brown as well as to the UK Home Office. I am going to make this an open letter on my blog www.euro-med.dk and other blogs as well. I think it would be expedient if Gates of Vienna also brought up this letter — and asked its readers to also write Mr. Gordon Brown. For this is a matter of survival of democracy — not only in the UK, but in all of Europe.
Here is the text of the letter Mr. Laursen sent to 10 Downing Street:
RE: Law and Order
Mr. Prime Minister
As far as I can see from his blog, all he has done is to bring the truth about Islam — as it is written in the Quran and the Hadith. And as we see it described every day in our MSM.
I am a Dane, and we Danes have had a very high opinion of the UK and its democracy ever since World War 2. We were liberated by British forces after 5 years of German nazi-occupation..
Today many Danes are beginning to see the UK as an equivalent to a dictatorship, which your fathers so gallantly fought.
– – – – – – – – –
The repression of the right of free expression as demonstrated in the case of Lionheart has sparked deep surprise — even contempt with many Danes.
Please, change this new British Image. Stop this insane persecution of Lionheart and others who tell the truth about the Islamic occupation — and about any other kind of undemocratic behaviour.

He received the following automated response to his email:
