80% of young Muslims in Netherlands see nothing wrong with jihad against unbelievers

(Reuters) – Support for the anti-Islamic Freedom Party of Dutch populist Geert Wilders has jumped to its highest level in more than a year after the Islamist militant attacks in Paris.

    This is getting interesting. The parties of the left don’t care a whit about muslims. They only see them as a reliable voting block.

    I’ll wager that 80% prevails among Canada’s present muslim population.
