Denmark: 30% see Islam as a threat to Denmark

The Centre for Studies in Islamism and Radicalisation (CIR), Department of Political Science, Aarhus University in Denmark conducted a survey on the attitude of the Danes to Islamophobia. (h/t Hodja)

The survey is available for download (PDF), as is an analysis by professor Peter Nannestad "The Danes, Islam and Muslims" (PDF)

30% either agreed or fully agreed with the statement: ”Islam as a religion is a threat to Denmark”. 62% disagreed with the statement. Only 17% of the under-30s asked agreed. Btw, 8% (ie, one) of the Muslims interviewed fully agreed.

36% said they wouldn't like it if their child married a Muslim. On the other hand, 87% said they didn't care whether their neighbor was Muslim or Christian.

46% thought Muslims were to blame if they were criticized in Denmark, compared with 41% who disagreed.
