Copenhagen -  Scores of mostly men have attended the burial of the 22-year-old Danish Muslim who shot two people dead and wounded five others at a free speech event and a synagogue in Copenhagen last weekend.

Police called it “a private ceremony” and declined to comment on media reports that up to 500 people attended Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein’s funeral Friday in suburban Broendby. Denmark’s TV2 channel said many didn’t know him but came out of respect for his family.

The head of the Danish Islamic Funeral Foundation, Kasem Said Ahmad, said the hearse left a Copenhagen mosque after a brief ceremony and drove to the burial ground 10 kilometers (6 miles) away.

Ahmad said the body of El-Hussein, who was killed Sunday, was released by police earlier in the day.

No need for the Western World leaders and media to connect any dots, lest a trace of that most cursed disease, Islamophobia, rear its ugly head.

Der golus.

You will note when some American, French or Australian Muslim goes nuts and starts killing there is always a problem as nobody wants the body. Things seem different in Denmark.

What a show of support for this beast! Obama is right we're not against Islam. We're against the fools who think Islam does not support its terrorists. See. They support them wholeheartedly. They consider the terrorist high class. They look up to his family. They think he is holy. They wish they could have done it themselves. They celebrate after terrorists kill Jews.

What do we expect? Why would we think that hundreds WOULDN'T show up for this spectacle? This is their thing. They do it all the time. Muslims torture and brutally kill EACH OTHER every single day; and yet there's always a parade of mourners praising their fallen martyrs.

So while a few hundred buried their terrorist trash in Copenhagen... over 1,000 Muslims formed a Ring Of Peace around the synagogue in Oslo for Havdalah. It doesn't erase antisemitism by any means, but it's something positive.
