Hat tip to Gates of Vienna.
The recent invasion of a hospital by up to 70 men, many of whom were armed, in Odense, Denmark may very well be the most obvious illustration of the incompatibility of Islamic culture and that of the West. European hospitals have long suffered from the acts of both tolerant Muslim men who refuse to allow male doctors to examine their wives and and women who not only do the same for themselves but also insist that only females treat their daughters. Many may have read the report a while back of the husband who punched a male doctor in a French hospital for daring to attempt to examine his wife. Earlier in 2012, a Turkish immigrant's death that resulted from a confrontation with German police (The accounts/reports of the incident point to a situation in which police were justified) was followed by the vicious ransacking of the intensive care ward of the hospital. This included destruction of not only furniture and paintings/wall photos, but also medical equipment. Responding police officers were kicked and punched and had to withdraw until backup arrived. Violence and other bizarrely chaotic behavior consistent of that which is routine in Muslim majority countries (Particularly in hospitals) is no longer considered to be an anomaly in Western Europe
In the US, the worst our hospitals have so far had to deal with were cases in which Doctors who, treating patients who were Jehovah's Witnesses, were told by family members or in some cases fellow Kingdom Hall (Local Church) members, that the patient was not to be given any blood transfusions.
Still, the Odense invasion deserves special note.

The latest incident of such inexcusable savagery within the walls of a European public medical facility occurred last week in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark. Danish newspapers report that about 70 men, some armed with “cudgels,” invaded the Odense University Hospital emergency ward, looking to further harm, even possibly kill, a man who had just been admitted in critical condition with a gunshot wound. Luckily, no hospital staff member was injured, and it was most likely the heroics of the police officers present that prevented the intruders from reaching the injured patient.
“There were pictures torn down from the walls. There were vases knocked into pieces. It was quite intimidating to both staff and police there, and several officers had to fire their guns to get them to disappear,” said one Danish police official in describing the chaos.
Another police official stated: “They poured in with clubs into the emergency room…The staff at the hospital had to jump for their lives, and several police officers had to pull their service weapons to force the group out…”
Frustrated at being unable to reach their target, the vandals then took their anger out on ambulances and police vehicles. In all, the Copenhagen Post reported that “one ambulance and four police cars were destroyed in the night’s events.”
The trouble apparently began earlier that evening between rival immigrant groups when two members of one group drove up to the other’s Eid al-Fitr celebration that was being held in a shopping center parking lot. After being identified as an enemy, one report states the 26-year-old victim wound up being shot at least twice in one leg and stabbed several times in the other, but several shots were fired at the car the two were in. It is also at the crime scene that two of the four police cars may have been destroyed, while an ambulance summoned for the injured man was also reportedly attacked."
The frequency and escalation of the severity of such violent acts has been building up for years as the amount of Muslims living in Europe increases.
Also in 2006, France’s medical establishment became very concerned about Muslims rejecting the secular nature of French hospitals after a colleague was punched by a Muslim husband who did not want him to examine his wife. As a result, the French National College of Gynaecologists and Obstetricians issued a declaration that rejected “any moves to undermine the principle that public hospitals are part of the secular state, in which patients must accept being examined by a doctor of the opposite sex.”
Note that prior to the explosion of the population of European Muslims, most followers of Mohammed acquiesced to the cultural norms of their new country.
“Thirty years ago, Muslim women came into our hospitals without any alarm at being taken into care of doctors, most of whom were men, and there were none of these difficulties. Why are things going backwards? It is for Islam to adapt to the liberties that all must possess in a modern state,” the college stated.
"Such a declaration was probably long overdue. In 1998, for example, Le Figaro reports a Muslim fundamentalist physically prevented a male doctor for 30 minutes from helping his wife during a difficult delivery. He didn’t want a man touching her. The fundamentalist finally acceded, but his baby was born handicapped. The doctor apparently did not have the time “to carry out the examination that would have prevented serious neurological complications.”
And things do not seem to have gotten better in French hospitals since the declaration. In her book Menaces religieuses sur l’hopital (Religious Threats to the Hospital), published last year, writer Isabelle Levy gives examples of how catering to religious sensitivities, and not just to Islam but to other religions as well, are affecting proper medical care and wasting valuable time and resources. It sometimes takes 45 minutes, for example, to convince a woman with an earache to lift her veil for an examination, while some mothers won’t let a male pediatrician examine their daughters.
“Some have forbidden access to their room to male hospital personnel, not hesitating to post a sign ‘Forbidden To Men’ on the door,” Levy writes.
Ironically, Levy is reported to have once worked acquainting healthcare workers with different religious rites and practices so that they could “better respond to the needs of the sick.” But after seeing the abuse of such tolerance, both by patients and hospital staff, Levy has now “gone over to the other side” and become a big defender of the secular hospital. But as with many other ills created by multiculturalism in Western Europe, her awakening may have come too late.
The maddening thing about the barbarism now being enacted in western European hospitals is that it was predictable. One only has to examine the behavior in the hospital systems in the countries of the immigrants’ origin to realize what they are acting out is nothing new. Hospitals are invaded by angry individuals, family and clan members in countries like the United Arab Emirates,Pakistan and Yemen, among others, who damage the facilities, beat up staff and maybe even kill a doctor. Even in supposedly secular Turkey, attacks against medical personnel are reported to beon the rise. This year, a parliamentarian from Turkey’s Peace and Democracy Party reportedly beat up a doctor after throwing a tantrum in an emergency room.
Looking back, it seems incredible that such cultures were not examined for their compatibility with Western values and standards before their members were allowed to immigrate in such large numbers to the West. This is turning out to be the multiculturalists’ greatest sin.
An interesting reaction in normally politically correct Western Europe occurred in response to the invasion.
In response to the Copenhagen hospital attack, the Danish parliamentary Foreigner and Integration Policy Committee chairwoman “suggested” that those who wished to engage in such violence should “go home to their native country.” A pipedream! These barbarians will not voluntarily leave the welfare heaven of Western Europe, and leftist groups and human rights laws will prevent any effort to deport. Thus, such violence is in Western Europe to stay and will only increase with time. So the only option now is that one had probably better get building more hospitals. Europe will be needing them.
In that case for the government
To dissolve the people
And elect another?"
