At last, the red tape has been done away with and Muslims have their own burial place in Copenhagen: Muslim Burial Place in Copenhagen (Jyllands-Posten, my translation)

"I'm very happy. The decision of the Ministry for Ecclesiastical Affairs shows that Denmark is a tolerant society and that Danish laws embrace the different groups of the society", says the chairman of Danish Islamic Burial-fund Kasem Ahmad, who is also media-chairman for The Danish Islamic Society.

The cemetery will be placed on a 50,000 square-meter ground along the motorway in Brøndby, which Danish Islamic Burial-fund has bought for 3,5 million kroner. [567,000 USD]

We have met Kasem Said Ahmad (picture to the right) before in this Blog. He preceded Ahmed Akkari as spokesman for The Danish Islamic Community. Kasem Said Ahmad was the spokesman who talked of appeasement in Denmark, while he was inciting his Muslim brethren in the Middle East with his fake Mohammed cartoons and assorted lies.

The article goes on:

Kasem Ahmad estimates that in the future several thousand Danish Muslims will be buried in the Copenhagen west-area.

"Every year more than 70 Muslims are flown out of the country in order to be buried in Muslim countries. In time this traffic will cease" says Kasem Ahmad.

It should be obvious that with 150,000 - 200,000 Muslims in Denmark, the number of dead each year far exceeds 70. The fact is there's nothing sensational about Muslim graveyards - the majority of dead Muslims are already being buried in their new native country, Denmark. Several churches and graveyards have large sections reserved for Muslims.

So what's wrong with these sections? The article goes on to explain:

Muslim tradition prescribes that Muslims be buried without a coffin, with the faced turned towards Mecca and in soil, where there aren't also Christians and Jews.

That's the problem for Kasem Ahmad. Once a cemetery has been Christened - once it has been used for burying unclean Christians or (horror of horrors) Jews - the soil is for ever contaminated.

Can we say racist now?

The article goes on:

The Danish Islamic Community will issue a press release Saturday to Danish and international media in order to draw attention to the fact that Danish Muslims now have their own burial place.

"After the Mohammed-conflict most people think that Muslims in Denmark are treated poorly. Maybe the news about a burial place can change this", says Kasem Ahmad.

Several Danish churchyards already have special sections which are reserved for burial of Muslims.

So Kasem Ahmad is going to issue a press release because "most people think that Muslims in Denmark are treated poorly". And why do "most people" think so? Could this have something to do with the Akkari-Laban dossier, which Kasem Ahmad has distributed in the Middle East, while telling Danes at home not to worry?

Could it have something to do with the fake Mohammed cartoons spread by Kasem Ahmad?

Could it have something to do with the lies in the dossier? The lie that Islam is not an officially recognized religion (in fact 19 different variations are recognized) - the lie that there are no mosques (there are 120 - for 150 - 200,000 Muslims)? The lie that Muslims are persecuted? The lie that Denmark will publish a censored version of the Koran? The lie that Denmark will produce a movie critical of Islam? The lie that ... well, you get my drift.

Instead of issuing another press release - why don't The Danish Islamic Community go back to their friends in the Middle East and admit that it was all a lie?

Old news

Take another look at the happy flower child. Something is wrong. This is April - and sad to say - the fields are still bare and without flowers. This must be an old photo.

In fact the story is nine years old - but there has been a lot of bargaining. Does 567,000 USD sound dirt-cheap for a 50,000 square-meter plot in Copenhagen? According to this old page from the City of Copenhagen, the original price was 22 million kroner - but then it was "re-evaluated" to 2 million kroner.

This old page (you may have to look in Google cache) is from 28. October 2004 and the title is (in Danish: "Muslims burial place ready in a year".) According the article the price for the 50,000 square-meters was 3,2 million kroner.

So lets look at the time-line:

  1. 1997.xx.xx: First plans. Price for the plot is 22 million kroner.
  2. 2004.06.09: The price is "re-evaluated from 22 millions kroner to 2 millions. An amount which magically was the same as what The Danish Islamic Community were willing to pay.
  3. 2004.10.28: Article with headline "Muslims burial place ready in a year".
  4. 2005.12.03: Kasem Said Ahmad goes to the Middle East to tell how terrible racist Denmark is and that Muslims in Denmark are treated poorly - while telling Danes at home not to worry.
  5. 2006.04.08: (Yesterday) Everything is now in place.
  6. 2006.04.17: The Danish Islamic Community will issue a press release, because "most people think that Muslims in Denmark are treated poorly"

Let me say at once that I don't like it - not one bit. As I have written before - there's a power-struggle going on between various Danish Muslim societies. Please see what I wrote in the post about The Danish Islamic Society.

Even if The Danish Islamic Society only represent 5,000 - 10,000 Muslims (including children), they still take the rather extreme position that all Danish Muslims are members of the Society. Those "members" who dare to oppose the leaders of the Society are considered apostates, which means that they and their family are frozen out. For instance Naser Khader's nephew was fired from work, people left a party where his niece appeared, and his family has been harassed back in Syria.

In the future, extremists like Kasem Said Ahmad, Abu Laban and Ahmed Akkari will be in charge of the after-life. Not only will they be able to harass living relatives of their "enemies", they will also control the dead relatives. "Wouldn't it be a shame if we didn't have room for your sainted old mother until judgement day?".
