Denmark: Well over half of young Somali, Lebanese, Moroccan, and Kuwaiti men have criminal histories

Alien-related crime and violence are hotly debated topics in Denmark, just as they are in Sweden and many other western countries.

Now the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten has published statistics having to do with crime among certain alien groups in Denmark, and the numbers are quite telling.

In its recent study, the thinktank Unitos examined young men born in 1985, 1986, and 1987 who’ve lived in Denmark since they were 14-years-old. The figures unearthed in the study revealed that over half of men with Somali, Lebanese, Kuwaiti, and Moroccan backgrounds had been convicted of a crime on one or more occasions before they reached 30-years-old, Danish online newspaper Den Korte Avis reports.

Among young Somali men born in 1985, 1986 and 1987, 222 out of 357 (62 percent) have at some point received a sentence for a criminal offense.

Lebanese men didn’t fare much better, with 322 out of 535 (60 percent) born between 1985 and 1987 having been convicted of a criminal offense. In Denmark, the people referred to as Lebanese are usually Muslim Palestinians who immigrated to Denmark from Lebanon.

Among Moroccans in the same age group, 98 out of 181 (54 percent) had been convicted of a crime prior to the age of 30.

The study revealed that the most crime-prone alien group Denmark are those from Kuwait, with 23 out of 33 (70 percent) having been convicted of a crime before turning 30-years-old.

In contrast, among Vietnamese immigrants, 48 out of 219 (22 percent) have been convicted of crimes before turning 30.

Among Danes in the category, 14,043 out of 78,120 – just 18 percent – were convicted of crimes before turning 30.

Unfortunately, no data was collected for other large alien groups in Denmark like those from Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Syria or Poland.

The criminal penalties that were examined in Unitos study included fines or prison sentences for violence, theft, robberies, burglary or vandalism. Traffic violations were not included. It’s important to note that since not every crime committed resulted in an arrest or a conviction, the real percentage is likely much higher.

Interestingly enough, the four alien groups who commit the most crimes – Somalis, Lebanese, Moroccans, and Kuwaitis – all have one thing in common: the religion of Islam.

Conversely, the Buddhist Vietnamese immigrants committed crimes at a much lower rate.

The percentage of Muslims living in Denmark is difficult to calculate, but according to estimations by the Pew Research center, 5.4 percent of Denmark’s legal population were Muslims in 2016, slightly less than the percentage seen in most Western European countries, but far higher than the numbers seen in the Visegrád and Baltic countries.
