I have a cunning plan!

That's not King Julian, but MEP Gerard Batten and Sam Solomon.
Cal Thomas describes it in Jewish World Review:
The Charter calls upon Muslims to:
  • Respect non-Muslim religions and issue a fatwa (an Islamic religious decree) prohibiting the use of force, violence or threats to their followers.
  • Respect all civilizations, cultures and traditions and promote understanding of the precedence of national laws over Sharia law.
  • Respect Western freedoms, especially of belief and expression and prohibit violent reaction against people who make use of these freedoms.
  • Prohibit the issuing of any fatwa that would result in violence or threat against individuals or institutions.
  • Request Islamic institutions to revise and issue new interpretations of Qur'anic verses calling for Jihad and violence against non-Muslims.

Solomon says, "We call on organizations representing the Islamic faith … to endorse and sign this Charter as an example to all European Muslims." By doing so, they will make it clear that "Islam is a religion of peace … and that acts of terrorism committed in its name are the acts of misguided individuals who have misunderstood and misinterpreted its teaching."

There are very sensible suggestions about people who refuse to sign and those who lie.

Sorry for the delay in replying!

Was there a racial or religious motivation to this attack?

Dear Canker,
please do no apologise, I check the Danish bloggs most days, along with the Danish Newspapers, this sort of occurrence is happening more and more often. Stoget is the main street in Copenhagen, it has been a traffic free street for more than 30 years. 30 years ago this sort of incident would have been unheard of the incidents are usually caused by the followers of the religion of peace and have been happening more and more in broad daylight, this incident is not exceptional. The nice thing about this incident is that the perpetrators have been caught and have been charged. The Danes by the way do not piss about so they will get a stiff sentence. It does not however distract from the fact that the youngster will most likely suffer from permant brain damage. He is at the moment in intensive care but is still in a coma. Whether this is a racial or religious attack is imaterial, as it will certainly not be recorded as such.

Deep regards

Yorkshire Miner
