    You state:

    Indeed, who really doubts that Denmark's "inhumane" argument is just a cover for anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic sentiment?
    The law in Denmark, that you are referring to, only codifies existing practice, sanctioned by the religious communities (Jewish and Muslim minorities) in Denmark.  I provided quotes and links up thread.  

    Do your homework before you accuse whole nations of racism.  Please.

      pass legislation, without that reflecting on the views of the population as a whole. I'll take the edit, but Denmark does have strong anti immigrant sentiment, like many countries in Europe and here.
