Compare & Contrast

UPDATE: below

A number of school administrators have come forth in recent days to confirm that they recommend Jewish children should not enrol at their schools.

According to school administrators, law enforcement officials and social workers, the on-going conflict in Gaza has led to heightened tensions between Jews and Arabs -- particularly Palestinians -- here in Denmark.

And although few headmasters of schools have faced the situation, most of those at schools with a high percentage of children of Arab descent say they try to prevent Jewish parents from enrolling their children there.

On Monday, headmaster Olav Nielsen of Humlehave School in Odense publicly admitted he would refuse Jewish parents' wish to place their child at his school.

The comments were made following an incident last week in which two Israeli citizen's were shot and wounded at a city shopping centre. Police believe the incident was a reaction to the Gaza conflict.

Other headmasters have now come forth to support Nielsen's position, adding that they are putting the child's safety first. -- January 6th Copenhagen Post

[A] state may not unduly suppress free communication of views, religious or other, under the guise of conserving desirable conditions. -- Cantwell v. Connecticut, 310 U.S. 296, 308 (1940) (forbidding the so-called "heckler's veto")

And to think that after the Mo-toons brouhaha I was pro-Denmark: I thought they were pro-free-speech, pro-democracy, pro-human-rights.

Dissolve Islam before Islam dissolves you. That is their clear intent and that is what Islamic believers in the Koran are now doing throughout the world, i.e., killing people who use their freedom to think and believe for themselves rather than mindlessly and heartlessly obeying the Koran, the Islamic bible.

So - due to the "never again" mindset, in order to enforce laws aimed at preventing "extremists" from treating Muslims in Europe as "the new Jews" (recalling the horrors of WWII-era Germany), the tactic will be to treat Jews the same way they were treated -- in WWII-era Germany ????

Except this time, instead of "Jews are causing all our problems, let's get rid of them" the NEW REVISED excuse will be "Jews are causing all the Muslims' problems; when we remove them from our society, Islam will stop being a source of terror".

I'll bet every one of these anti-thought-crime, see-speak-hear-no-evil, we're-doing-this-for-public-safety bureaucrats has a completely clear conscience, too, because "it's to protect the chiiildren" that they're discriminating against Jews yet again.

And to think that after the Mo-toons brouhaha I was pro-Denmark: I thought they were pro-free-speech, pro-democracy, pro-human-rights.

These Danish educrats might ponder what ELSE they're going to have to sacrifice to keep the increasingly-delicate "sensibilities" of your Mohammedan immigrants (i.e., overlords in waiting) mollified.

Hey, guys, ask yourselves "WWKCHD?" -- "What would King Christian have done?" (in reference to the legend that he wore the yellow Star-of-David armband in solidarity with his Jewish citizens during the Nazi occupation.)
