The sight of women's breasts won't deter Islamists – they're obsessed with sex
by Praveen Swami
Denmark's government is being called upon to employ a lethal new weapon in the fight against Islamist extremism: bare breasts.
No, I'm not making this up – and also deny outrageous suggestions that I'm looking for an excuse to tear myself away from the world-changing Wikileaks exposé. Peter Skaarup, the foreign policy spokesman of the Danish People's Party, wants footage of topless women at beaches to be included in a video shown to prospective immigrants, in order to deter religious fundamentalists.
"Topless bathing probably isn't a common sight on Pakistani beaches, but in Denmark it is still considered quite normal. I honestly believe that by including a couple of bare breasts in the movie, extremists may have to think twice before deciding to come to Denmark," he said.
The Dansk Folkspartei aren't a bunch of fringe loons. In 2007, the won 13.8 per cent of the vote, and 25 seats in parliament. Its support is important to the ruling alliance, which means we should take Mr Skaarup's ideas seriously – even if it's difficult.
