In recent days, Copenhagen had been living the impact of shocking events that led to the deaths of three people and wounding of five others, and by the killing of the suspect who carried out the attack, an important part of the circumstances and motives for this operation is missing. But that did not stop the politicians and media to consider this act as an attack on the principles and foundations of democracy and freedoms upon which Western societies are built. Following these events there was a rush to launch a package of new laws and programs to combat the so-called extremism in several ways and means; the Danish government has allocated a billion Danish krone for this purpose.
This event received huge coverage in the media and political debate. Politicians were competing to put forward their views on the subject, some of whom demanded more pressure and spying on Muslims, depicting Islam as the source of violence and there is no way to deal with it except by forcing Muslims to embrace the Western principles, and some of them tried to shed light on what may be the reason behind this operation, considering Muslims as part of the Danish society as long as they are committed to secularism and respect the freedom of opinion. Here emerges a difference in the reactions on how to deal with Muslims, but in reality their goal is one, which is forcing Muslims to convert to Western secular principles forcibly through pressure and harassment, or through their assimilation and integration into the existing programs already in place or are planned to be implemented soon to strip them out of their religion.
The campaigns to pressurize and harass Muslims did not stop, but took many forms, sometimes the West wages bloody wars in the name propagating freedoms and democracy in the Muslim countries leaving death and destruction not seen before in the modern era, and the blood still stains the hands of Danish politicians, but it is the best evidence of their deception and lies of their claims, and thus they are not in a moral position that allows them to describe Islam and Muslims as violent. And at other times it is through enacting laws and legislation which are unfair and unjust within Europe, in conjunction with the surge of media campaigns that encourage hatred and portray Islam, through lies and slander, as a religion that promotes murder and that Muslims are terrorists and they are always in a position of suspicion, leading to the creation of big cracks in European societies and to physical attacks on Muslims in many places.
Despite all this internal and external pressure and oppression, the West has failed to remove Islam from the hearts of the Muslims, so it tries under the pretext of so-called conflict of values to show contempt for Muslims and force them to accept insults and violations of the most precious sanctities under the pretext of freedom of opinion. The recurrence of such abuses is but an attempt to tame them and kill the feelings of anger in them caused by the violation of the sanctity of their religion.

“But they plan, and Allah plans. And Allah is the best of planners” [Al-Anfal: 30]
The Danish politicians are the ones who must condemn their policies that led to the spread of the atmosphere of hatred and violence in the community and even murder in some cases, regardless of the identity of the victims of this atmosphere. Western values are the basis of the problem and Western politicians are aware that their values face enormous challenges, not because of the killing operation in Copenhagen. Bullets can not remove values and convictions an inch, the challenges faced by Western values lie in its intellectual contradictions and inability to find harmony and coexistence in societies. This has become clear for those of insight as well as it became clear that Western values have caused the disasters and the suffering of all humanity, and here lies their major predicament.
Ideas are confronted with ideas, and our trust is absolute that the Islamic creed and the ideas and rules emanating from it are the treatment for this miserable situation of mankind, and we insist on challenging Western ideas with strong arguments to expose its falsehood and lack of validity to provide solutions to humanity’s problems. Islam is a mercy to the world and to bring people out of the injustice of people to the mercy and justice of the Lord of mankind.
In light of all this, we warn the Muslims in this country from being misled by the atmosphere of fallacies which is created by Western politicians, which considers all who uphold the Deen and reject their principles as a security risk to the society, and we do not expect the Muslims to accept that Islam to put in the accused cage and be satisfied with the position of the defendant defending his Deen. The correct position required of Muslims in this country is to remain steadfast on their Deen and be proud of it.
