The Local (via Tundra Tabloids):

The City of Copenhagen has given the Islamic Society in Denmark (Det Islamisk Trossamfund) a 30-day deadline to condemn controversial statements made by some of the society’s members.

A collaboration between the Islamic Society in Denmark and the City of Copenhagen may be dropped over comments made by representatives and associates of the Muslim group, politicians said on Tuesday.

The city and the faith group work together on integration and anti-radicalization projects but that partnership will end if the society doesn’t account for controversial opinions expressed by some of its members and guests.

Copenhagen City Council members pointed to the society’s invitation to British imam Haitham al-Haddad earlier this year. According to city officials, al-Haddad “accepts violence against women and believes that Jews are the descendants of pigs and apes”.   Read more.
