Gulf Times skriver om arrestationerne i Odense blandt andet:
Muslims say the arrests two months ago have set back their efforts to integrate into Danish society and they find themselves again forced to defend their allegiance to their adoptive country.
“We have worked in this city for a long time for integration,” said Maher ElBadawi, a social worker in Odense, the suspects’ hometown in central Denmark. “But people are afraid that if even one of them is found guilty, all Muslims will be seen as terrorists.”
The arrests further strained relations between Muslims and other Danes, who are now struggling to reconcile their tradition of liberalism and tolerance with threats of violence unseen here in two decades.
“Muslims feel that this latest case is just feeding the story about the evil Muslim they say they see vilified on TV every day and that it perpetuates the one-sided image of Muslims in Denmark,” said Camilla Elg, a sociologist at Aalborg University. “The Odense story is a relevant one, but Muslims feel like they are under attack.”
“Inside, you are afraid,” said Saleh Hassan, whose brother, Said Hassan, is one of those arrested. “I watched when they arrested him and I thought now it’s my turn. Just because I am Muslim, I thought they are catching all Muslims now.”
“We need to explain to the Danish people that the ones arrested are not representatives of Muslim society,” he said. “Muslim society in Denmark is a part of Danish society. This minority is not representative of Islam and it’s not fair that all Muslims will be punished because of one group’s actions.”
Så det er retssagen og efterforskningen, der sætter integrationen tilbage? Og dansk TV forfølger muslimer ifølge sociologen? Må jeg bede om mine himmelblå!
