Netherlands votes to ban weapons exports to Saudi Arabia

The Dutch parliament has voted to ban arms exports to Saudi Arabia in protest against the kingdom’s humanitarian and rights violations.

It sees the Netherlands become the first EU country to put in practice a motion by the European Parliament in February urging a bloc-wide Saudi arms embargo.

    The Netherlands has to rid itself of progressives.

    • Geert is polling well.

    • Justin St.Denis

      That will never happen. They cannot kill all the Dutch women off just like that.

    That’s Islamophobic! I’m reporting them to the Toronto Chief of Police.

    • Justin St.Denis

      You mean Mr. Limpy? 😉

      Mr. Limpy always goes soft whenever a muslim is present, then bends over and asks to be fucked.

      For over 20 years we heard how better things would be with Minorities in power or to get a Black Police Chief in Toronto.
      Black crime with guns has gotten worse since Blair left , plus now Saunders appears as a Uncle Tom to the islamists as he sticks his nose into a Federal crime investigation by the RCMP and CSIS to scold us about islamophobic backlash .
      Wynne is a disaster as Hillary too is a disaster while Obama has ruined it for any other Black male wanting to be president .

      How do you like Diversity so far .

        It worked out great for Detroit. If Torontonians weren’t so narrow minded they’d have more success adapting to minority rule. I’m sure they’ll come around though.

    Guess the Saudis refuse to do any military business with them so the Dutch hypocrite elites are trying their hand at making lemonade.

      yes , some spin here.. can still buy anything they want through other countries

      I didn’t know that the Dutch made any weapons of consequence in the first place.

  • In truth, the West should refuse all advanced technology to Arab/Muslim countries. Not only weapons of war, but personal computers and cell phones should not be sold to them. They are savages who misuse technology for their nefarious ends. The Internet to spread lies and hatred. Phones to organize murderous acts. And so on. Just to make a few more bucks, the enemy is given the means to kill us with. This means we have to spend billions and trillions to defend ourselves against them. It is stupid.

      DIdn’t the Libs rail against Canada’s deal with the Saudis while they were in opposition. Now it’s okay. Guess the PM doesn’t want to miss out on getting a selfie in Saudi garb.

      They use construction cranes to hang people so no trade in any construction or agricultural implement either.

      • Quite – let them see for themselves that they are backwards non-entities.

    I can still remember that response by a Justin fan that tried to bash Harper after the election because Justin was going to cancel the $18 billion deal with the saudi’s for Military equipment because it’s 2015 .
    But now Justin seems to want to keep the $18 billion deal with those
    bad Misogynistic homophobe saudi’s because it means steady jobs in Canada.
