A lot of overtime detail for the Copenhagen PD:
Mourners gathered Wednesday in Copenhagen for the funeral of Jewish community member Dan Uzan, killed in a weekend terror rampage that also targeted a free speech forum in the Danish capital.
Uzan, 37, was providing security for a bat mitzvah party taking place behind a Copenhagen synagogue when the gunman struck.
Large numbers attended Uzan’s funeral, held at the Mosaiske Vestre Jewish cemetery in Copenhagen amid heightened security. Armed police patrolled the area, and a sniper could be seen on a nearby rooftop.
Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt was among those present for the somber ceremony.
They say “large numbers”, but they don’t say how large.
The gunman who killed two people in Copenhagen was today buried in a Muslim cemetery in the city, despite objections from the Islamic group that owns it.
Omar El-Hussein, 22, murdered two people last weekend following a bloody rampage through the Danish capital that ended when he was killed in a shootout with police.
The ceremony at the Islamic Society of Denmark was attended by approximately 500 mourners and sympathisers, before he was buried in a Muslim cemetery on the outskirts of the city.
The funeral was open to the public, but reports from the scene said it was mostly attended by young men, who were described as ‘wearing large black coats with many of them having covered their faces’.
After the burial, controversial Salafist Adnan Avdic – who had previously called El – posed for pictures at the the plot.
I don’t know, but 500 people showing up to bury a terrorist sounds extreme to me. Maybe, as the old joke goes, they just wanted to make sure the son of a bitch was dead.
More on this Adnan Avdic character (in a Google translation of a Danish news story):
Adnan Avdic is known to be Salafist who represent a small fundamentalist minority of Danish Muslims want Sharia law introduced in Denmark. In 2005 he was accused of planning terrorist in the so-called Glostrup case, but the trial in 2007, he was acquitted.
After the massacre of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo said Adnan Avdic to the French television program “Le Petit Journal” and said among other things that France was responsible for the 12 deaths of innocent people. Because the country is behind the killing of innocent Muslims in Afghanistan.
Also the horrific terrorist attacks that rocked Copenhagen and Denmark at the weekend believes Adnan Avdic is our own fault.
“Why always a Muslim in the dock and take responsibility for the actions of others. No, we do not! We take no responsibility for this action. It is you who must take responsibility for violations of the Prophet Mohammed. It is you who have created this action, this terrorist, “came from Adnan Avdic.
How we created it?
“It is you who keep by violating the Prophet Mohammed. So is there anyone who react as they do. They will continue to be so, and so we must hope that some people get their act together and do not violate the Prophet Mohammed, then we Danes and Muslims can live in peace. For we Muslims and non-Muslims could live in peace, but these violations of the Prophet Mohammed have created hatred between Muslims and non-Muslims.”
Adnan Avdic said earlier this week that Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein was a hero for his actions. Friday he insisted that Denmark and the Danes are to blame for the terrorist attacks.
Are you saying that these acts of terrorism are our own fault?
“Yes, I do. Omar would never have thought in these courts, if it were not for these violations of the Prophet Mohammed. Why? Because while going for a draw, so it goes without saying. ”
But the people, Omar has killed, has not drawn the Prophet Muhammad?
“Have the children in Palestine done something? No not. So the people of Palestine have not done anything, but is killed anyway, “said Adnan Avdic, who demanded that ‘the West’ was to take responsibility for his actions in Palestine before he would discuss peace.
So, dry your tears, Denmark, and take responsibility for your actions in Palestine. Whatever they might be.
Avdic, a Bosnian with Danish citizenship, may be one man—but so was the murderer. And 500 showed up to see him off to paradise.
PS: An earlier incarnation:
“Recently Inger Støjberg from the party Venstre (Liberal Conservative) criticised Muslims who do not embrace Danish society’s laws and values – and told them to go home. The newspaper Ekstra Bladet organized a debate between Støjberg and the Islamist Adnan Avdic.
Avdic is Bosnian with Danish citizenship. Even before the debate started, complications emerged when Støjberg held out her hand to greet Avdic who refused. Instead, he handed Støjberg flowers and explained that he cannot shake her hand for religious reasons.
Avdic said that Støjberg’s criticism creates racism and terrorism, especially now during Ramadan, and Avdic drew parallels with Jyllands-Posten’s Muhammad cartoons. Something that upset Støjberg who said that Avdic’s statements was actually threats of terrorism.
Avdic then said to Støjberg that she will be punished in hell according to Allah.”
The Danish politician says Muslims who don’t want to be culturally Danish should move to where they might be more comfortable. The Muslim who doesn’t want to be culturally Danish says she’ll burn in hell. I’m sure they’ll come to an agreement.
