    The University of Copenhagen in Denmark is home to a unique collection of Ancient Egyptian papyrus manuscripts. A large part of the collection has not yet been translated, leaving researchers in the dark about what they might contain. "A large part of the texts are still unpublished. Texts about medicine, botany, astronomy, astrology, and other sciences practiced in Ancient Egypt," says Egyptologist Kim Ryholt, Head of the Carlsberg Papyrus Collection at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark... "It's totally unique for me to be able to work with unpublished material. It doesn't happen in many places around the world," says PhD...

    Danish prosecutors on Tuesday charged an imam with calling for the killing of Jews in the first case of its kind in the Nordic nation and which sparked political outrage. Imam Mundhir Abdallah, who preaches in the Copenhagen neighbourhood of Norrebro at the Masjid Al-Faruq mosque, which media have linked to radical Islam, is accused of citing a hadith or koranic narrative calling for Muslims to rise up against Jews. “Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them,” Abdallah said in a Facebook and YouTube video post in March.

    Hundreds of people, including Danes, Denmark-based Americans and US citizens visiting Denmark attended a rally in support of the March For Our Lives movement outside the US Embassy in Copenhagen on Saturday. The event, with speeches by US residents in Denmark, teachers and school students, was held in solidarity with the national March For Our Lives event scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C. later on Saturday. The movement in the United States is led by students of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Florida, which suffered a gun attack that killed 17 pupils and staff on February...

    A suspicious package found near the Embassy of the United States in Copenhagen on Wednesday proved to be harmless. Police in the city have now removed a temporary cordon in the area of the Østerbro neighborhood around the embassy premises, reports Ritzau. Earlier on Wednesday, police were dispatched after receiving a report of what was described as a “suspicious situation” near the embassy. Army bomb disposal technicians and the Fire Service were also called to the scene. After bomb disposal experts investigated the package that had given rise to the suspicion, police confirmed that it had not been found to...

    An analysis has revealed that as many as 15 percent of Copenhagen residents eligible to vote in Denmark’s upcoming municipal and regional elections are citizens of countries other than Denmark. The report, published by Copenhagen-based thinktank Tænketanken Europa, also shows that EU citizens alone make up eight percent of the non-Danish citizens eligible to vote in Copenhagen. Citizens of other EU countries plus Norway and Iceland, as well as other non-Danish nationals who have lived in the country for three years or more prior to the election, are all eligible to participate in the November 21st municipal and regional polls....

    The Jewish Community in Denmark will contact police about an imam at a mosque in Copenhagen’s Nørrebro neighborhood who encouraged attacks on Jews during a Friday service, reports newspaper Kristeligt Dagblad. The complaint will be based on a video recording of a Friday service at the Masjid al-Faruq mosque in Nørrebro on March 31st this year. The recording was translated from Arabic to English by American institute MEMRI. According to the translation, imam Mundhir Abdallah quotes a hadith — a report of a speech by the Prophet Mohammed used in Islamic scripture — which incites violence against Jews. “‘Judgment Day...

    Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th president of the United States on Friday should be the biggest show in town; but according to a recent report, it’s likely to be dwarfed in size by the Women’s March on Washington the following day. A DC council member told the local NBC affiliate that the city has issued around three times as many tour bus permits for the march than it has for the Inauguration Day events themselves. […] Not only is Copenhagen no exception, the so-called ‘sister march’ here may draw one of the largest crowds outside of the United States....

    Money quote; “Police spokesman Jens Møller Jensen told TV2 News that the 21-year-old man is a resident of Amager and is of ‘a different ethnicity than Danish.’” Uh huh. The mental gyrations the media goes to to avoid the “M” word and the “I” word would be funny if they weren’t so dangerous. The media speaks in sharia-complaint language, the language of the conquered. These fires have been raging for weeks. The enemedia is silent. And it’s not new: a few years ago Muslims set tens of thousands of cars on fire in Paris. And car fires have been raging...

    The 25-year-old man who shot three people in Christiania on Wednesday night has alleged ties to terrorist groups, police said late on Thursday. “He apparently has ties to [militant Islamist group] Millatu Ibrahim and sympathies for IS,” police said in a statement, using one of the many names for the Islamic State terrorist group. Saying the man was a Danish citizen who had come to the country from Bosnia when he was four years old, police said there was “currently no evidence that [his alleged terrorist sympathies] has influenced the shooting incidents.” …

    Staff at Center Sandholm, Denmark’s largest asylum center, have suspicions that young refugee boys are being prostituted, Berlingske reported. Jannich Bisp, a supervisor at the center, told the newspaper that concerns have been raised about a group of teenage boys. “There are situations in which the boys receive a phone call, take off for a few hours and then come back with designer clothes,” Bisp said. […] The concerns at Center Sandholm, located some 30 kilometers north of Copenhagen, came to light after the Swedish newspaper Sydsvenkan reported similar stories about refugee children at the Aleris Asylum Center in Malmö....

    A glimpse into Europe’s future. This has been going on for five years, with authorities either indifferent to it or powerless to stop it. And with the massive influx of Muslim migrants, these “Sharia patrols” will certainly grow larger and more aggressive.====================================================== “Copenhagen bars tired of ‘Sharia patrols’ rampage & threats raise issue with integration minister,” RT, May 12, 2016: A group of bar owners from one of Copenhagen’s suburbs, who have been endlessly harassed by Muslim youth activists trying to impose a so-called “Shariah zone”, have taken their case to a government minister, urging her to protect their businesses...

    Danish research is behind a new epoch-making discovery, which may prove decisive to future brain research. The level of salts in the brain plays a critical role in whether we are asleep or awake. This discovery may be of great importance to research on psychiatric diseases such as schizophrenia and convulsive fits from lack of sleep as well as post-anaesthetization confusion, according to Professor Maiken Nedergaard. Salts in our brain decide whether we are asleep or awake. For the first time, researchers have shown that the level of salts in our body and brain differ depending on whether we are...

    Danish police are being stretched by a migrant crime wave in capital Copenhagen as foreign outlaws “flock” to the city in ever greater numbers. Latest crime figures for 2015 obtained by Danish newspaper MetroXpress reveal that of 2,633 criminals who went before a judge, 2,049 were foreigners, some four fifths. This proportion — 78 per cent — is up from 65 per cent eight years ago. Although crime is low in Denmark compared to many other European countries, it has struggled with problems imported from abroad through Europe’s open borders Schengen agreement. ... These latest figures will add credence to...

    It has been said that the period between 760 BCE to 656 BCE in Egypt was the 'age of the black pharaohs'. It was during this time that ancient Egypt was ruled by a dynasty or succession of kings from Nubia, the Kingdom of Kush, a rival African kingdom just to its south in what is today northern Sudan. Beginning with king Kashta's successful invasion of Upper Egypt, what became known as the 25th Dynasty achieved the reunification of Lower Egypt, Upper Egypt, and also Kush (Nubia), the largest Egyptian empire since the New Kingdom. They introduced new Kushite cultural...

    Pedal Pusher: Peduto sets Pittsburgh on down cycle by Daniel Clark “It isn’t the way it was in 1970,” says Pittsburgh mayor Bill Peduto. “Not everyone’s dream is to have their own car and use it to get to work.” Actually, you’d have to go back a lot farther than 45 years to find a time that having a car was “everyone’s dream.” The Model T had made that a reality half a century earlier. By 1970, it was just a normal facet of life in a civilized Western nation. Well, we can’t have that, now, can we? Peduto vowed...

    Norwegian Muslims organized a peace vigil in Oslo Saturday in a show of solidarity with Jews a week after fatal shootings in Denmark targeted a synagogue and free speech seminar. As the small mainly elderly Jewish congregation filed out of the synagogue after Shabbat prayers, a group of young Muslims, many of them teenage girls wearing headscarves, formed a symbolic ring outside the building to roaring applause from a crowd of more than 1,000 people, reports AFP. "This shows that there are many more peacemakers than war-makers," 37-year-old Zeeshan Abdullah, one of the organizers told the crowd. "There is still...

    In the aftermath of the killing of a man at a Copenhagen synagogue by a member of the Religion of Peace, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “This wave of attacks is expected to continue. Jews deserve security in every country, but we say to our Jewish brothers and sisters, Israel is your home.” Russian emigre Natan Sharansky echoed Netanyahu’s call, stating, “There is no future for Jews in western Europe.” In response, European leaders shouted down Netanyahu. “We know there are doubts, questions across the community,” said French President Francois Hollande, who was elected with in excess of 93...
