In his 2008 book Et Delt Folk ("A Nation Divided”), The Danish historian and writer Morten Uhrskov Jensen carefully went through publicly available sources. He demonstrated that the opening up of his country for mass immigration was arranged by just part of the population, sometimes in the face of considerable popular opposition.
Roughly speaking, those representing the political and media establishment and the upper classes were in favor of open borders, whereas those from the lower classes were often opposed. This divide is viewed by those from the upper segments of society as caused mainly by racism, prejudice, ignorance and xenophobia.

Support for people who criticize their own Western democratic societies is now all too apparent among many Western intellectuals, academics, members of the media, international organizations, and religious groups which, while refusing to challenge cases of injustice, particularly in Muslim countries, instead criticize and condemn the state of Israel at every turn, despite the continuing physical and rhetorical aggression against it.
It's been less than five years since I first met the great Jewish intellectual David Littman, and it is with great sorrow I now hear that I shall never again enjoy his elegant academic style, razor-sharp criticism of the moral decay of the United Nations, of the dhimmification of Western authorities, nor his loving words to his wife and lifetime ally, Gisèle Littman, not to mention his eloquent and purposeful quoting of Shakespeare.

My friend and generous mentor, the historian and fearless human rights activist, David Gerald Littman, died yesterday, May 20, 2012, succumbing to acute myelogenous leukemia, after a stoic, typically intrepid struggle.
In addition to amassing his own unique and prodigious output, David was a devoted husband and champion of the pioneering scholarship of his wife of 53 years, Gisele Orebi, better known under her nom de plume, Bat Ye'or. Despite stultifying modern taboos, together, the Littmans worked indefatigably to educate humanity -- non-Muslim and Muslim, alike -- about the genocidal living legacy of jihadism.
