Labour knee-jerks

The Dutch Labour Party released a study this week by parlementarians Nebahat Albayrak and Bert Koenders.

The report proposes to win the hearts and minds of Muslims. By buying them.

The parliamentarians propose a comprehensive program to bribe the Muslims into loving The Netherlands and our Western way of life.

- Imamschools must be financed, using tax money;
- moderate books about Islam must be subsidized, using tax money;
- foreing policy must be more critical of the Americans, be more hostile to the USA;
- discrimination must be fought more strongly;

The report "Van wijk tot Wereld" ("from the 'hood to the world") singels out Rita Verdonk for having it made impossible for Muslims to integrate, thusly failing to fight terrorism.

The present Cabinet has ignored the "complicated national and international background of the War against the Jihadists". Foreign policy has been too servile towards Bush' policy on Iraq and Afghanistan.

The authors see a big role for the state in integrating Muslims into Western society. By bending over for the immigrant population these will become part of the fabric of Dutch society.

For sure. There is nothing the state cannot do, if it is well-directed. We must all say this and believe this. The state is a great thing. It can suspend gravity if it wishes it so.

If we parrot the Labour Party line and pay our taxes everything will be alright and apart from that there is nothing we have to do.

Arrests amongst a Flemish Neo-Nazi group

Islam in Europe reports that Belgian police arrested a group of members of the Belgian Military which: "busied itself with talking about plans, collecting weapons and explosives and playing war games."

So that is illegal possession of arms basically. Plus talking. And playing too.

The police spokesman stated also: "Though there were no concrete plans".

Justice Minister refuses to investigate the sordid past of Fortuyn's assassin

Thursday 7 September Dutch Justice minister Piet Hein Donner announced that there will be no investigation into the possibility of Volkert van der Graaf having murdered civil servant Chris van der Werken.

Volkert van der Graaf murdered anti-multiculturalist Pim Fortuyn in 2002. It was recently alleged that he had killed before. The case concerns the unsolved murder of civil servant Chris van der Werken in 1996.

Amongst the new facts are:

1. a "Farmer B." who told police that Chris van der Werken had come to his farm in a state of shock because Volkert had threatened to kill him. This was a few weeks before he was killed.

2. The landlord of Volkert of the house where Volkert was living at the time of the murder of the civil servant has declared that he entered the house unannounced during the tenancy of Volkert van der Graaf and found a pistol on the attic were Volkert slept. He identified the pistol as a Walter PPK.

According to the Minister however, there are no new facts that justify opening a new investigation.

And that must be true. Because Minister Piet Hein Donner says so.
