Camera Lucida (the 7th comment) wrote a shining bright first entry:

5. I understand that one is meant to feel sorry for her, but her battles and positions have nothing to do with Holland and with Dutch society. What she is really saying is contradictory – it has to be since her arguments do not belong there: “Help us Muslims reform Islam [which is unreformable], and do not put us into multicultural ghettoes.”

Snouck sez:
It used to be called "the white man's burden"

Take up the White Man's burden--
In patience to abide,
To veil the threat of terror
And check the show of pride;
By open speech and simple,
An hundred times made plain
To seek another's profit,
And work another's gain.
