Immigration to Denmark doubles that of US

Immigration to Denmark last year made a record high of 39.729 newcomers compared to a total population of 5.387.174 (2003). Immigration in 2004 accounts for 0,7 percent of the total population, according to the latest statistics published today in the papers.

Compared to the United States where the legal immigration in 2004 totalled to 946.142, this number accounts for only 0,3 percent of a total population of 281 million (2000 census).

The total number of Moslems in Denmark is believed to be between 180.000 and 250.000, the exact number unknown as it is strictly illegal to register people by religion. The Moslem part of the population thus raised from around 0 percent in the beginning of 1970 to around 4,0 percent of the total population in 35 years.

The total number of Moslems in the United States is estimated to six to eight millions, raising from only around 100.000 in the sixties. The Moslem part of the US population thus comes to 2,5 percent compared to the Danish 4,0 percent.

The raise of the Moslem part of the total population in Denmark is far bigger than the one registered in the United States.

Please note that Wikipedia has other figures , for Denmark it estimates the Moslem part of the population from 2,0 to 5,0 percent. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_by_country

Just found and started to read some of your posts. Being from an immigrant country I have some understanding of what Denmark is experiencing currently. Ah, free speech. Do wish we had some here. Used to think, when I was younger, that we could say anything and be applauded for it. No longer. Our current administration has covered all of us with a "blanket of fear". If you speak against any government policies, you are considered unamerican and put on somebody's list. SAD, SAD.

"Blanket of fear" seems a fine expression. Wonder what your founding fathers would have done, were they to pay respect to the "don't insult anyone" present status.

Thanks for reading and posting.

That really didn't make any sense, what I just posted. What I tried to say should have been:
"Blanket of fear" seems to be a fine expression for self censor ship, - but one doesn't have to wear that blanket.

Wonder what your founding fathers would have done, had they tried to obey by "don't insult anyone",

- which seems to be the political correct thing to do these days.
