Here’s yet more evidence of how anomalous Denmark is. The was printed on the cover of a Danish magazine over the weekend, and seems to be an illustration for an article about Jihad Rap:
Thanks to Henrik of Europe News for scanning and sending the image.
Update: Henrik emailed me with further information:
The magazine in question is the ‘Culture’ section of Jyllands-Posten (editor: Flemming Rose — surprise :), and the headline reads:
Young people rap about Jihad and suicide bombings
(BTW, I prefer the term “single-use activist” over “suicide bomber”. But that’s another story 🙂
The article itself runs over 4 full pages and seems not to be posted online. Some core items and names:
– – – – – – – – –
- Médhi Zaouiche, bearded as a sign of allegiance to Muhammad. Usually wears a ‘Jihad’ T-shirt. His video “9/11” was banned in France.
- Subjects covered by the lyrics used to be racism and mafia shootouts, but now concepts like Umma, Kafir, Jihad, Allah, and the (supposed) discrimination against Muslims worldwide appear.
- More relevant names: Digihad, Fun-Da-Mental, “Cookbook D.I.Y.”, “Dirty Kuffar”, “Russian Hell”, “All is War”, Blakstone.
- Mohammad Kamel Mostafa, son of Abu Hamza of Finsbury Mosque fame, part of the duo “Lionz of Da Dezert”. Favorite subject: Jihad with full force of weapons.
- Marwan (from Århus) on his debut album P.E.R.K.E.R.. states: “Death to all presidents, there is only Allah!” (‘Perker’ is a derogative of the Danish word ‘perser’, which means ‘Persian’).
YouTube holds videos from all of these. Links are given in the article, but they’re tricky to type in and get right.
I take issue with your statement that Denmark is anomalous. We just happen to be a bit behind, retaining some normality in a world that is going nuts. We would like the rest of the world to return to normality. That’d be nice.
The only form of praise we want is imitation.
