Danish Foreign Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said on Monday he hoped the government’s proposal to limit Koran burnings in the country would help de-escalate a growing international conflict with several Muslim countries.
Denmark and Sweden have seen several protests in recent weeks where copies of the Koran have been burned, or otherwise damaged, prompting outrage in Muslim countries, which have demanded the Nordic governments put a stop to the burnings.
[Editor’s Note: In Sweden’s case, all of this is being done as without the consent of Turkey, there is no pathway to NATO membership. It will be interesting to see if their laws are changed to accommodate Muslim rage. Dhimmitude alert !!!! ]
