Aboutaleb, the Trojan

The new cabinet for the Balkenende government has become public. Contrary to what I wrote previously Achmed Aboutaleb, the focus of the Muslim voting block that is becoming increasingly powerful in urban zones of The Netherlands, was not made a Minister. Instead he will be a Deputy Minister ("Staatssecretaris") of Social Services under Minister Donner. Piet-Hein Donner is the former Justice Minister, made infamous by his remark that Sharia could become Dutch law through the democratic process.

In view of the very high rate at which Muslims receive welfare from the Ministry of Social Services, Aboutaleb will be able to argue to his voters that he is taxing Dutch infidels to support them, which follows Islamic law.

Achmed Aboutaleb will be groomed for a higher position in the Dutch government by Piet-Hein Donner, who is a heavy-weight in the Christian-Democratic party. In view of what Donner has said about the prospect of Sharia becoming constitutional in combination with the fact that the government is throwing the country wide open to further settlement by non-Europeans, these developments are signally important.

I'm wondering if I could persuade you to post on a topic that deeply interest me. I'm curious about the relative levels of dhimmihood and Islamic penetration of the CDA, PvdA, SP, and GL. I'm an American and I don't read Dutch, so it is hard for me to get the nuances of what is happening.

I'm working a right-wing environmentalist response to the lunacy of Green parties and a better understanding of the GL dhimmihood in particular may be helpful to me.
