A Dutch secret service agent assigned to protect anti-Islam campaigner Geert Wilders has been suspended on suspicion of leaking details to a criminal group.
The agent has been identified as an experienced officer in his mid-30s with a ‘Moroccan background’ who was part of a team responsible for looking after the frontrunner in next month’s Dutch elections.
Wilders, who campaigns on an anti-Islam platform that includes closing mosques and banning immigration from Muslim countries that has led to the protection, condemned the alleged breach, saying he cannot function without adequate security.
Rachid el Hajoui – yet another moderate Muslim who agrees with Hitler and his Final Solution.
Another pearl in the long, long, string of mediapearls relating to Europe’s Muslim population, which just can’t seem to shake the false narrative of victimhood. Yesterday the Dutch Public Broadcasting Company (NOS) allowed Dutch Muslims to point their finger at the Dutch and shout ‘discrimination!’ again. One of the stories about how badly Muslims are treated and how difficult a life they have, came from Rachid el Hajoui.
Dutch secret service (AIVD) warned on Wednesday that not just so-called “Islamic State” (IS) fighters returning home to the Netherlands could pose a danger to the country but also their children.
Rob Bertholee, chairman of AIVD, told a Dutch television broadcaster that many of these children could have been trained to fight.
“Boys can attend training camps from the age of nine,” he said, adding that children of that age “or even younger” had likely been involved in attacks and executions. “Children in the IS area have lost their innocence due to all the violence,” Bertholee added.
For over a decade, Europe’s struggle to successfully integrate its Muslim population has been evident. But throughout the years a new and distinctly European phenomenon arose, which is as significant as it is underreported: Gangster Islam. It entails the conflation of the seemingly a-religious street culture of youths from a Muslim background on the one hand, and elements of the Islamic religion on the other.
The German publication Der Spiegel once very briefly touched on the matter, a Danish documentary highlighted Islamic extremists recruiting gang members from a Muslim background, and a Dutch terrorism expert pointed out how Syrian returnees were more likely to live a life of crime in order to finance the jihad, than to actually commit a terror attack.
The leader of Dutch political party VNL (VoorNederland, a classically liberal party) is lashing out at “the multicultural dream forced upon us” by the establishment.
Yesterday, Dutch outlet De Dagelijkse Standaard (I serve as its editor-in-chief) reported that increasingly more teachers at primary and high schools refuse to talk about certain issues due to fear of Muslim students.
They mention a similar situation in Turkey, led by the increasingly authoritarian President Erdogan, where homosexuality and terrorism are issues better ignored. The teachers say that there’s a “cultural conflict” in Dutch classrooms, and although some of them initially tried to hang on to liberal Dutch values, many have now given up.
With Geert Wilders ahead in the polls, progressive Islamic party hopes to halt rightward drift
Nourdin el Ouali has grown used to far-right attacks on Dutch Muslims, and to dog-whistle politics. But when the country’s prime minister wrote an open letter last week, in effect demanding that minorities integrate or “go away”, he was still shocked.
Mark Rutte’s letter comes less than two months before a national election, and after months of watching populist Geert Wilders rising into the top position in national polls. If the election were held tomorrow his far-right party would probably be the largest in parliament.
THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte sought to lure voters away from anti-immigration lawmaker Geert Wilders, as campaigning for the March 15 national elections heated up on Monday.
In a full-page newspaper message, Rutte said “we have to actively defend our values” against people who refuse to integrate or act antisocially. “Behave normally or go away.”
While Rutte’s message did not mention Wilders or his Party for Freedom, it was clearly aimed at winning over voters who would likely back Wilders’ hard-line platform.
Rutte, leader of the center-right People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy, said he understands calls for people who don’t integrate to leave the Netherlands. “I have that feeling, too,” he said.
A country whose most outspoken filmmaker was slaughtered by an Islamist; whose bravest refugee, hunted by a fatwa, fled to the U.S.; whose cartoonists must live under protection, had better should think twice before condemning a Member of Parliament, whose comments about Islam have forced him to live under 24-hour protection for more than a decade, for “hate speech.” Poor Erasmus! The Netherlands is no longer a safe haven for free thinkers. It is the Nightmare for Free Speech.
The most prominent politician in the Netherlands, MP Geert Wilders, has just been convicted of “hate speech,” for asking at a really if there should be fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands. Many newly-arrived Moroccans in the Netherlands seem to have been responsible for a disproportionate amount of crime there.
AMSTERDAM — A Dutch anti-discrimination group complained to police about a political party whose Muslim founders said Adolf Hitler was Jewish and that homosexuality is a contagious illness.
The Bureau Against Discrimination on Wednesday filed the hate speech complaint against the Free Democracy Party, which was established last week ahead of general parliamentary elections scheduled for March, the De Orkaan news site reported.
