 Press Release
The Danish Government Legitimizes Genocide in Gaza

Hizb ut Tahrir / Denmark strongly condemns the Danish government's legitimization of the massacres in Palestine.

On October 10, the Danish Prime Minister, Mette Frederiksen, was asked by a journalist if she would lay flowers for the civilian Palestinian victims, just as she laid flowers in front of the Zionist occupation embassy in Hellerup.

The Prime Minister answered the question by saying angrily:

"Israel has the right to defend itself, and that will mean that victims will fall. It bears no comparison, and the fact that a Danish journalist asks the question is deeply worrying for me, I would like to say, and a display of ignorance regarding history.” (TV2 10/10-23)

The Prime Minister said this while the whole world is witnessing how Gaza's schools, hospitals, ambulances, refugee camps and residential areas are being bombed. Describing the genocide of Gaza's population as "self-defense" is an explicit legitimization of the Zionists' massacres and siege of the Gaza Strip.

The politicians of the Zionist occupation power have made no secret of their intentions to carry out war crimes in Gaza and that their aim is total annihilation. The Zionist defense minister's statement that the Palestinians "are not human" and therefore do not have the right to access electricity, water, medicine or food is as dehumanizing as the Prime Minister's statements.

Because when Mette Frederiksen states that the Palestinian victims do not deserve flowers to be laid for them, it is an unequivocal dehumanization of the Palestinian population.

The lack of knowledge regarding history is demonstrated by the Prime Minister herself, as Palestine has been occupied for 75 years by the Zionists, who during this period have committed the most inhumane and indescribable crimes against the Palestinian population. It bears no comparison.

We further condemn the Danish state's close cooperation with the Zionist occupation, including the purchase of Zionist weapons systems and the sale of Danish weapon components used by the Zionist warplanes in their murder of Gaza's elderly, women and children.
