What do these pols think? That these clerics have some vision of Islam that differs radically from that of Ahmadinejad? On what grounds do they think that, other than the wishful thinking that is rampant in the West?
“Denmark: Muslim leaders criticized for meeting Ahmadinejad,” from AFP, December 23 (thanks to Maxwell):
Several politicians in Denmark have criticized local Muslim clerics for meeting with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on the sidelines of the climate conference in Copenhagen.
“They should have at least distanced themselves from a regime that imprisons its citizens and punishes students for being homosexuals,” said Martin Henriksen, a spokesperson for the Danish People’s Party. (AFP)
Yeah, they should’ve.
