I really admire the frankness of Queen Margrethe on certain issues on which she really expresses on. A lot of people seemed to understand her easier than most politicians as what I have observed because she seems to be straight to the point when she talks and she really talks with sense.

I admire her praises for CP Frederik and especially to CP Mary. Both of them really deserved it.

There won't be any bigger celebrations for Margrethe's 65th birthday this year (like for her 60th), it will only be private thing and I think the Crown Princely couple will in Thailand on that day.

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik will make a balcony appearance (like Norwegianne so kindly translated), and there will be a congratulatory book that the people can sign.

I agree with QMII's stance. Europeans have got to have more strenuous immigration laws. And thi is not just to protect the culture, but that the immigrants are having such a hard time assimilating. The Europeans need to get smarter, especially the Netherlands-don't get me started on how foolish their policies are. But I am sooo glad that QMII stands up for the truth-even if it isn't hard or politically correct (which I don't believe in being in).

Views: 242Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II claimed that Islam poses a global threat and urged government to show no tolerance toward the Muslim minority in the north European country, reported the Telegraph on Friday, April 15.



“We have to show our opposition to Islam and we have to, at times, run the risk of having unflattering labels placed on us because there are some things for which we should display no tolerance,” the queen said in an official biography published on Thursday, April 14.

The queen told her biographer Annelise Bistrup that Islam is posing a major challenge to the whole world which requires taking serious measures to face it.

“We are being challenged by Islam these years - globally as well as locally.

“It is a challenge we have to take seriously. We have let this issue float about for too long because we are tolerant and lazy.”

Queen Margrethe, who turns 65 on Saturday, April 16, said the country could have handled “this challenge a bit better, if we had realized what we were up against”.

The monarch who has ascended the throne since 1972, wields no political power in the north European country but does occasionally give comments on political issues.

Extremists
Queen Margrethe said she was feeling frightened from Muslim “extremists” who have dedicated their life only for religion, Reuters said.

“There is also something frightening about such a totality which is also a part of Islam.”

She stressed that certain response must be shown “and sometimes one must run the risk of being labeled in a less flattering way. Because there are certain things with which one should not be tolerant.”

The monarch said there is “something impressive about people for whom religion imbues their existence, from dusk to dawn, from cradle to grave.”

The Danish government announced last year plans to curb the activities of “radical” religious leaders, a measure seen as specifically targeting imams.

The rules oblige religious leaders to be financially self-sufficient, speak Danish and respect Western values or risk being declared persona non grata.

Integration

The monarch said immigrants in the Nordic country should learn the Danish language in order to easily integrate into society.

She maintained “it is wise to make demands on the language. We should not be content with living next to each other. We should rather live together.”

Many newcomers do not learn Danish and unemployment rates among them is still much higher than among Danes, as are crime rates.

Immigrants make up about 8% of Denmark's 5.4 million -- about a third of them come from other EU countries or North America.

Among the immigrants is Margrethe's daughter-in-law, the very popular Crown Princess Mary, who is from Australia.

But Denmark has cracked down on migration in the past three years and the anti-immigrant Danish People's Party, an ally of the center-right government, has pushed through laws making it harder to bring in foreign spouses or qualify for asylum.

Danish Muslims - estimated at 170,000 or around 3 per cent of Denmark's 5.4 million - sounded the alarms that much more restrictive steps would be taken by the government in future.

Islam is Denmark's second largest religion after the Lutheran Protestant Church, which is actively followed by four-fifths of the country's population.

A nice article about the Queens birthday present from the Crown Prince (and the Crown Princess). The Queen once told the Crown Prince that she "envied" him and would love to participate in such trip. The Crown Princely couple then planned the expedition for the Queen, however because of her pregnancy, the Crown Princess chose to fore-go the expedition.

Prince Henrik of Denmark is arriving in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk on Monday as a World Wildlife Fund (WWF) emissary. Prince Henrik is expected to award a nature guardian certificate to regional Governor Alexander Khloponin. ....

Also russian news said about some problems of Henrik with the royal hierarchy three years ago .
Could someone kindly explain what is the final of this story?
