As we have reported previously, under the influence of the second Motoon crisis, Denmark has become remarkably united in its opposition to Islamic threats and extortion.
Danish Social Democrats are now going on the offensive. They propose to pay Muslims — even those with Danish citizenship — to leave the country if they don’t like Denmark or the Danes.
At Henrik’s suggestion, the text below was translated by TB from a transcript at Snaphanen of a Danish Public Radio broadcast. The speaker is Helle Thorning-Schmidt, the leader of the Danish Social Democrats:
All these people living in Denmark with a foreign background, they should have a choice. They should choose whether they wish to be part of the Danish community, with all the norms and rules that we have in Danish society, or whether in fact they would prefer to be another place.
And this is a message to all of those who support Hizb ut-Tahrir: If they have so much against our way of life and all the freedom we have in Denmark, then it might be a good idea to be in another place; but this is also an offer to those who never really fit in right, who maybe came here in the ’70s, and are actually not that happy about Denmark and would rather go home.
Why not raise the repatriation check amount, and give them an offer so that one in reality should choose whether one wants to be in Denmark and be part of Danish society, or whether one in reality should be another place.

I don’t say that they should travel to another country with a check. I say that every single citizen living in Denmark should preferably be here for the right reasons, because they wish to live in Denmark, perhaps because they like Denmark and the Danes.
So this is a message that every single individual should find out within himself whether he actually wants to be in Denmark with all this democracy we have, with all this freedom that we have. Is this what one really wants? And therefore the check should be large enough, so that in reality it becomes a real choice for the citizens who maybe do not even want to be in Denmark.
Why should they be here?
