Dutch parliament rejects Turkish party’s offer to discuss Islamophobia

According to the results of the U.S.-based FRA survey, the Muslim community in the Netherlands is more widely discriminated against than any other Muslim communities in the EU. In response to the results of the survey, the Dutch Denk Party, founded by Dutch-Turks, is seeking to bring the subject to the agenda of parliament. However, the Denk Party’s attempts to discuss the issue were rejected in parliament.

    You can’t discuss something that doesn’t exist.
    Phobia means unfounded fear. Based on Islam’s 1400-year history, fearing what Islam can do to a country/society is totally rational, as is fearing the Black Plague.

    Stupidity is asking muslims if they are victims, knowing what they’ll all answer.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Considering they want special washing facilities for their ablutions, take 20 minutes (or more) 5 times a day to raise their behinds up to Allah, have holidays that follow the lunar cycle ( change constantly), don’t want to handle pork or alcohol, commonly reject the business of those with service dogs, and dislike women that are western…would you as a business give pause to hiring such people?

    FRA isn’t US-based.
    It’s the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights which is based in Vienna
