Maybe The Dane Who Was Hit Wants To Try Protesting At Home

Hundreds are being slaughtered every day in Syria (ceasefire or no) and the world is in uproar because an Israeli soldier gave a Dane a fat lip. I like this explanation.

Meanwhile here is what happens to Danes who protest at home.

I particularly liked the CS sprays to the faces of seated protesters and the continuous beating with truncheons of prone and fetal-positioned protesters on the ground.

If the Danes think they can “demand an explanation” for one cut lip, you’d think the UN would have instituted a no fly zone after seeing the video above!

For handy side by side comparison here is the selectively edited footage provided by the enemies of Israel and freedom:

    All such ‘activists’ need to have their passports confiscated so that they can never leave. Ship them to Ramallah and Gaza and leave them there. It’s a win win all around.

    • Norman B.

      Er, preferably Gaza.

    I’d hit someone who was attacking my right to live in my homeland as well.

    I’d like to know why the tape is so chopped up, his is exactly why I think the IDF should film EVERYTHING.

  • Norman B.

    The so-called activists are invaders and should be treated as such. This is nothing more than another form of warfare and the government should so publicly state so as to warn European countries to keep their dhimmitude to themselves.

    I’m quite sure that if this had been anywhere but in Israel our dear foreign minister would never “demand an explanation” and the incident would barely hit the media.

    But remember, our dear foreign minister was for many years a supporter of the Boycott Israel campaign, but had his name removed shortly before the election in the fall that unfortunately gave us a new government where he isn’t the only one that has been a part of that campaign.

    Also the government is backed by a “communist light” party that in the past has staged charades where they dressed up as Israeli check point soldiers and pretended to beat up “peaceful protesters” and civilian Palestinians.

    Maybe Denmark Square in Jerusalem should be named Free Denmark Square until we are blessed with a new government :)

      just curious

      what would happen if i, as a foreign national, came to denmark and started protesting your government, and did something like get into the face of some police

      and you guys have some really hawt princesses….

      • Michael

        Hmm. I guess you would get a couple of weeks behind bars before your trial, get a fine and then sent back home :D

        I really don’t know the exact procedure. There have just been an English Defence League demonstration here in Denmark, and one of the many people from an anti-EDL demonstration that was arrested for assulting the police, was some guy from Turkmenistan. I’m guessing he will get a fine and be banned from entering the country again.

        But I haven’t heard the Turkmenian foreign minister demanding an explanation about whtat happened :D

      Thanks for commenting! Any idea if there was any fall out from those protests? Were any police prosecuted, reprimanded or sanctioned for excessive force? Was it a big story in Denmark or a shrug?

        The girl hit 8 times by a police baton lodged a complaint (segment starting at 00:22 in the video). “Københavns Politi” (The Police of Copenhagen) was of the opinion that the police officer did his job, but the Danish national public prosecutor thought the last 2-3 hits was “criticizable”.
        The more formal authority “Politiklagenævnet” concluded that it was “highly criticizable” and that the police officer should have restrained himself after the first baton hit.

        To answer your question specifically; Yes he was reprimanded, but not prosecuted or sanctioned in any other way. This only applies to the aforementioned segment in the video, as I have no information about the rest of the video.
        The story was huge in Denmark, in part because of what seemed to be excessive use of force by the police, but also because the whole reason for the clash between police and protestors was a number of Iraqi nationals who was scheduled to be sent home, as their petitions for asylum was denied. The police was then sent to arrest them, so they could be sent back to Iraq.

        In any case, I haven’t seen any people in power back here in Denmark, calling for the firing of the LtCol. All they did was request a report/investigation into the incident, which under the circumstances seems quite fair. The Israeli military made the call to fire him – Not the Danish government.

        • Tom

          Just to clarify; By “firing” him, I mean the decision to relieve him of command.

        • Jim from Iowa

          At the very least, someone should buy Lt. Col. Eisner a membership to a local gym. Don’t they have physical training and conditioning in the IDF? Looks like he’s approaching Chris Farley territory.

          “In any case, I haven’t seen any people in power back here in Denmark, calling for the firing of the LtCol. All they did was request a report/investigation into the incident, which under the circumstances seems quite fair.”

          Only if they call for the same kind of investigation into the ISM, especially as to the question what they’re doing in Denmark at all, a group with sympathy toward the religion of the cartoon-rioters.

          “The Israeli military made the call to fire him – Not the Danish government.”

          Yes, to our crying shame. He deserves a medal and promotion for raising Israel and Zionism slightly above the usual level of its doormat status, but those poor excuses we have for “leaders” want to keep Israel a treading ground for insolent anti-Zionist feet. Those “leaders” are not fit to lick slime off his boots.

            “Only if they call for the same kind of investigation into the ISM, especially as to the question what they’re doing in Denmark at all, a group with sympathy toward the religion of the cartoon-rioters.”

            Uhm – why would they do that? Being sympathetic towards islam, or the Palestinian cause or whatever ISMs goals are, is not a crime. Smashing a rifle into the face of a protester who appears unarmed and not threatening in any way does however, atleast judging by the IDFs decision to demote/remove him from command, appear to be a punishable offense.

              Aiding and abetting terrorists, pin-brain.

              • Tom

                “pin-brain”? That has to be the most idiotic (and really quite lame) self-invented insult I have ever heard or read. Well done you!

                I claim no knowledge of the ISM other than what google tells me, but they sure don’t look your average terrorist-sympathizers. Would you care to elaborate on the information you have on these seemingly nonviolent bike protestors, or are you going to call me something cool again? Nail-ass?

                • Jim from Iowa

                  I like to think of our Shy Guy for his left-handed artistry in orignality of name-calling, kind of like the Henri Matisse of insults.
