Margrethe of Denmark says Danes "must show our opposition to Islam"
Interesting. I mean, seriously. Just go read it.
Next thing you know, Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden will declare "holy war", while Harald of Norway recites "Lepanto".
No, not really, but, this is only going to get more interesting. (Interesting being my personal code for "developing, mildly alarming events abroad that may yet reach our shores but which at the moment I may observe in peace".)
Queen Margrethe II of Denmark has called on the country "to show our opposition to Islam", regardless of the opprobium such a stance provokes abroad.
. . . in overtly political passages from an official biography published yesterday Queen Margrethe makes comments certain to complicate her nation's relationship with Muslims.
She said: "We are being challenged by Islam these years - globally as well as locally. It is a challenge we have to take seriously. We have let this issue float about for too long because we are tolerant and lazy.
"We have to show our opposition to Islam and we have to, at times, run the risk of having unflattering labels placed on us because there are some things for which we should display no tolerance."
"And when we are tolerant, we must know whether it is because of convenience or conviction."
