The Netherlands becoming the playground for far-away disputes

The botched U.S. occupation of Iraq has thrown that country in ever worsening chaos, as was observed by the Gholam-Ali Haddad, Speaker if the Iranian Majlis or Parliament, to Turkish foreign minister Ali Babacan yesterday.

This means that there is has been no central authority in Iraq since 2003. The North of Iraq is Kurdish and is run by the Kurdish allies of the U.S. The Kurds are a minority in Iran, Iraq and Turkey.

The Kurdish allies of the U.S. in North-Iraq are giving refuge to PKK terrorists. The PKK is a Kurdish Communist Army the fights to liberate the Kurdish parts of Turkey. Kurdish separatism is a threat to the territorial integrity of Turkey. Turkey is an aspiring EU member state. Many Kurds and Turks live in Western Europe, especially in Germany and The Netherlands.

Turkey is now attacking PKK positions in north-Iraq. It has threathened to invade Iraq and some of its troops are already on Iraqi soil carrying out operations against the Kurds. Turkey is trying to find support in the region for its anti-Kurdish offensive.

Turkish public opinion is in turmoil over the threat of Kurdish separatism. There have been nationalist demonstrations in several Turkish cities. Demonstrators chant and display nationalist slogans.

Similar convulsions are also taking place in The Netherlands and Germany. In Berlin, Germany and Utrecht, The Netherlands, ethnic Turks demonstrated to express their dismay about the threat of Kurdish separatism. They demanded an invasion of Iraq by the Turkish Army.

Dutch viewers (Dutch) commented on the obvious loyalty of these Dutch-speaking Turks to Turkey. The Turkish diaspora in Western Europe knows exactly where their loyalty lies. It lies with Turkey and Turkish nationalism and goes against the host societies and Kurdish migrants in their host societies.

These demonstration give substance to the allegation by Dutch nationalist leader Geert Wilders that ethnic Turkish citizens have a "double loyalty", and that their loyalty to Turkey trumps their loyalty to The Netherlands.

Commie hate attack in Denmark

Yesterday the news came out (HT KV) that last Sunday Mr. Anders Gravers, the leader of Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) together with some of his compagnions, had been attacked. The van they drove in to a demonstration was ambushed and the occupants were assaulted by Leftist activists, with knives and crowbars. These "autonomer" attacked while the van and a following security car had just entered a underground parking lot.

The "autonomer" attacked a 74 year old women that had been driving in the security car with a crowbar as she was fleeing the scene. Mr. Anders Gravers was wearing a protective vest. His clothes were rent with knife gashes, but the vest saved him from serious injury.

Four of his compagnions were not so lucky and were injured by the Commie thugs. The injured were two men and two women, which shows you just how ideological this scum is. Equality before everything!

Mr. Gravers and some of his compagnions managed to drive off the attackers. It would seem that the autonomer tried to stop Mr. Gravers the same way the late Pim Fortuyn was stopped in 2002. Pim Fortuyn had been attacked by a Dutch group which is similar in outlook to the autonomer. Later he was assassinated by Volkert van der Graaf, a member of a far-left group of animal rights activists.

Groups as environmentalists, animal-rights activists, "autonomer", Antifa are heavily subsidized by governments in several European countries. They are protected by sympathetic judges when tried for using violence. They act as strong-men and enforcers for the political elites, stifling right-wing opposition to Left/Liberal political and ideological hegemony.

ANOTHER Amsterdam school stabbing

Yet another stabbing at school, now in Amsterdam South East also called the Bijlmer. The area is Amsterdam's black suburb, populated mainly by African and Caribbean blacks.

The stabbing (Dutch) was yesterday (Wednesday 24 October). The school was the "Open Scholengemeenschap Bijlmer". The victim is 15 years old. He was assaulted by to schoolmates after a quarrel earlier the day. They beat him up at the busstop and then stabbed him for good measure.

The victim is on the way to recovery in hospital.

Nothing has been said about the ethnicity of the victim or the perps.

Britain's Chief Rabbi slams Multiculturalism

Britain's top Rabbi Jonathan Sacks denounces Multiculturalism:
Liberal democracy is in danger,
Sacks said, adding later:
The politics of freedom risks descending into the politics of fear.

Sacks said Britain's politics had been poisoned by the rise of identity politics, as minorities and aggrieved groups jockeyed first for rights, then for special treatment.

The process, he said, began with Jews, before being taken up by blacks, women and gays. He said the effect had been
inexorably divisive.

A culture of victimhood sets group against group, each claiming that its pain, injury, oppression, humiliation is greater than that of others, he said.

That the Rabbi identifies the Jews as the first to take up multi-culturalism requires special emphasis. Next the question pops up: "why is the Rabbi abandoning multi-culturalism"?

Multi-culturalism involves abandoning the historic ethnic and cultural core of Western nations. It justifies mass immigration and condemns opposition to immigration as 'racist'.

The particular content of immigration in Europe is overwhelmingly Islamic. Muslims are becoming an important factor to take into account in elections in France, The Netherlands, Belgium and Britain. Due to the hostility of the Muslims towards Jews in particular parties looking to woo voters have to abandon support for Israel. This leads to Israel's cut off from alliances with nearby European countries and reliance on the far-away US, whose position is weakening globally, due to military, economic and political shortcomings.

The Conservative Muslim council, a consultory body to the British Conservative Party recently released a report stating amongst others:
The Conservative Muslim Forum also wants the compulsory history curriculum in schools changed to give "full recognition to the massive contribution that Islam has made to the development of Western civilisation
Regardless of whether one finds Israel a congenial country or not, on any objective assessment of the type of unqualified support given to Israel by the current government it is not conducive to British national interests as this could damage Britain's relationships with 15 billion Muslims (Sic!) worldwide, including those in Britain
Also Jewish citizens of European states become under threat of violent Muslim citizens, which can be seen most strikingly in France. This takes the shape of opportunistic street crime.

In conclusion: there are good reasons for the leaders of European Jewish communities to review their support for Multiculturalism and mass-immigration. In my view alignment of Jewish communities with nationalist movements in Europe must begin with affirmation of the historic ethnic and cultural core of European nations, by Jewish leaders.

Flowers for the police

Dutch newspaper "Het Parool" reports that the policemen who got injured during the suicide knife attack by Bilal Bajaka last Sunday are overwhelmed with flowers from the grateful Dutch public.

Under political correctness it is dangerous to express the hatred, distrust, disrespect and anger people feel for the invaders. Also known as immigrants.

When the police finally shoots one of the buggers, to express gratitude is also to express abovementioned emotions.

It would seem that quite a few cloggies found the opportunity too good to pass up.

From the frying pan into the fire

The Euro elites do not approve of the Christian view on nature:
European lawmakers approved a report condemning efforts to teach creationism in schools, underscoring concern about an emerging socially conservative agenda.

Meeting in Strasbourg, France, Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe members approved, in a non-binding 48-25 vote, a report that criticizes creationism advocate for potentially sacrificing children's education "to impose religious dogma" and to promote "a radical return to the past," The International Herald Tribune reported Friday.
The radical liberal egalitarianism that powers the Euro elites allows for no serious religiousness in Europeans. Creationism is a threat. This is a confirmation of the refusal to appoint Italian Roman Catholic politician Buttiglioni as a EU mandarin, because he was a serious Christian: he held that homosexuality goes against God's plan.
Creationism supporters endorse "a radical return to the past which could prove particularly harmful in the long term for all our societies,
The European Parliament (EP) seeks to surpress this threat. The next step will be to criminalize opposition to Darwinist Dogma.

But Darwinism itself is also a danger to Liberal dogma.

Noted DNA scientist James Watson recently said in an interview with The Times of London:
that he is inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours – whereas all the testing says not really”, and I know that this “hot potato” is going to be difficult to address. His hope is that everyone is equal, but he counters that “people who have to deal with black employees find this not true”. He says that you should not discriminate on the basis of colour, because “there are many people of colour who are very talented, but don’t promote them when they haven’t succeeded at the lower level.
According to an article in the Independent (HT Laurence Auster):
"The newly formed Equality and Human Rights Commission, successor to the Commission for Racial Equality, said it was studying Dr Watson's remarks "in full".... Anti-racism campaigners called for Dr Watson's remarks to be looked at in the context of racial hatred laws. A spokesman for the 1990 Trust, a black human rights group, said: "It is astonishing that a man of such distinction should make comments that seem to perpetuate racism in this way. It amounts to fueling bigotry and we would like it to be looked at for grounds of legal complaint."

The radical Liberalism highest ideal is radical egalitarianism. Both religion and racial / ethnic differences are at odds with egalitarianism. Darwin is not a suitable ally for the Euro egalitarians to defeat religion, as its outcomes point to a unequal humanity similar to that of the Old Testament of the Bible.

Darwin and Christianity may not be friends, but they do seem to be in agreement about the fundamental unequality of religions, races, nations and sexes.

And the history of the Soviet Union shows you can fool people about this inequality for a considerable period of time, but Truth can not be surpressed indefinately.

Persistent Jihad Syndrom update

Last night (Monday) there were riots in Amsterdam-West caused by the killing of Bilal B. Bilal, a Moroccan, attacked policemen in a police station on the August Allebé square with a knife.

Media are trying to spin the event, pointing to Bilal having received treatment for schizophrenia, arguing his attack has nothing to do with race or religion.

But if that is so, why do Moroccan Muslims act as one to seek revenge for of of theirs?

Footage of the riots. (HT Geenstijl.nl).

Another lethal stabbing in Amsterdam

In the same neighbourhood as the school where a Turkish pupil stabbed a Moroccan to death a week ago another incident took place.

Yesterday, a Moroccan youth entered the police station on the August Allebé Square in Amsterdam-West and started stabbing the on duty police woman at the desk. The police woman was stabbed three times in the chest and back. Another policeman who tried to assist his collegue was stabbed as well. Another police woman joined the fracas gun in hand and shot the attacker. The attacker died on his way to hospital.

The attacker was later identified as Bilal B, 22. He was known as a hanger-on of the terrorist Hofstad terror (Dutch) cell. This group was led by the assassin Mohammed Bouyeri, who killed Theo van Gogh. Bilal B. had been convicted by a court in 2006 to take treatment at a psychiatric ward "Valeriuskliniek". He had suicidal tendencies. During the weekend he went on a "accompanied leave" under guidance of a staff member of the ward. He shook of his warden and went on a rampage.

Bilal B. had an endless rap sheet. His first conviction was when he was twelve years old, for stabbing someone in the face with a sharpened screwdriver. Society allowed him to run amok for ten years before it stopped him. For good.

More stabbings at school!

Today another stabbing at school. Or well, near a school. It is the Accentcollege school in Rotterdam. The deputy-headmaster of the school was walking near the school with a 15 year old pupil, when they encountered another pupil. The pupils had a feud and got into a fight. A knife was pulled and the first pupil got injured. When the deputy-headmaster intervened she was stabbed as well. The incident took place at 11.00 in the morning.

Well, I am curious if there will be any further news.

Stabbing at Amsterdam school

It is Ramadan time, stabbing time! Yesterday there was a lethal stabbing between a 14 year old Turk and a 16 year old Moroccan at Technisch - College Amsterdam in Amsterdam West. The Turk killed the Moroccan in a fight over a pen. Friends of the Moroccan beat the knive-killer up before handing him over to the police.

This is part of a spate of stabbings, mostly at black schools, in 2007 in The Netherlands.

Amsterdam Labour major Job Cohen was shocked, shocked, by the stabbing.

Naturally Leftists have to be shocked by these events. According to the Leftists all people, races, ethnicities, religions and cultures are equal.

For those who keep their minds uncluttered by Leftism have seen this coming a long way. And it will only get worse. much worse as the borders are wide open. Trying to impose western style laws is not going to make much of a difference as the numbers of immigrants is too big and their capabilities too limited.

Ayaan finding out who are her friends

The news is out. Dutch parliament has decided NOT to fund the security detail for Ayaan Hirsi Ali. The debate on whether to funding Ayaan while she is in the States was unfocussed. Parliamentarians debated mostly on side issues, such as the way Ayaan and her legal representative tried to influence deliberations with confidential correspondence was proper.

Strictly speaking it indeed goes against the territorial principle to protect a citizen living in a different nation. Mrs. Ayaan Hirsi Ali has received two extensions of her security funding on foreign territory and she was amply warned.

In her defence it was argued that she was formally not allowed to solicit for funds while she was waiting for her US green card. Funding by the Dutch state was cut off almost immediately after she received her US green card. She did not receive a period of time to arrange new sponsors.

Ayaan is going to find out who her real friends are in the next few months. The US State does not fund the security of private persons. She has to find wealthy sponsor who are willing to underwrite her funding which runs in the order of two to two and a half million US Dollars annually. She has a extremely well-funded employer in the AEI.

Also we saw a media campaign in the Anglosphere with illustrious names as Anne Applebaum, Christopher Hitchens and Salman Rushdie writing highly moralistic pieces to urge the Dutch to fund her, without mentioning the issue of territoriality or the fact that Mrs. Ayaan Hirsi Ali was repeatedly warned.

The whole affair is dirty. The Dutch politicians reacted in a venal, overly formalistic way. Mrs. Ayaan and her legal representative Britta Böhler played it very hard on the assumption that the Dutch would not want to lose face in the world by cutting Mrs. Ayaan's funding. They were wrong. Mrs. Ayaan lost a lot of kudos amongst the populist right wing in The Netherlands by running off to the US. This made her look very strongly like an opportunist.

There is also a pattern here. Ayaan abondoned her clan and the Somali nation when her elders tried to force her into a marriage with an uncle. She made new friends in The Netherlands were she found asylum under false pretences. Later she was working for the Dutch Labour party. When she realized that the socialist were not interested in reforming immigrant communities in The Netherlands, she defected for the second time, now to the Liberal-Democrat Party (VVD) which put her on an electable seat on their party list. Once she had achieved international fame she made another move. She went on to work for the AEI in the US. She did not keep in touch with most of her backers in The Netherlands. So in effect it is another defection. The third.

A person that makes an enemy of a million Muslims should not neglect the base of her security as callously as she did.

She allegedly now has found funds to cover her security spending for less than a month. US imams have already called for her to be assasinated.

If Mrs. Ayaan is assasinated in the next few months were going to see a disgusting spectacle of our Dutch politicians trying to deflect the blame that is going to come down on them like a ton of bricks. It is going to be filthy.

To all those Americans who are screaming on Infidel-forums at the Dutch to protect Mrs. Ayaan I will say: "take your responsibility". The Dutch taxpayer has forked out more than two million US Dollars for her security, WHILE SHE WAS ON US SOIL". If you really want her safe, put your money where your mouth is. Money talks and bull***t walks.

Witnessing is a risky business

Abraham Zeegers, the witness to the trial of organised crime boss Willem Holleeder who died from poisoning two days ago had used cocaine, with his girlfriend "Shirley O.". Shirley O. is a Brazilian national. The cocaine might have been poisoned.

Mr. Zeegers had purchased the cocaine in restaurant Klein Kalfje in Amsterdam-South. The seller has been tracked down as a "Joop de B." apparently a well-known criminal and underworld figure. Joop de B. used to employ Shirley B. in his bar on the Beethovenstraat in Amsterdam-South.

Witness Abraham Zeegers had already made a full testimony on the blackmailing of Real estate mogul Willem Endstra by Crime boss Willem Holleeder.

The police is now transporting other witnesses in armored vehicles to the courthouse, where the trial against Holleeder is proceeding.

Organised crime witness murdered in Amsterdam

Snouck previously reported on the trial in Amsterdam of crime boss Holleeder. The trial began inauspiciously with an attack with anti-tank rockets (2) against a special organised crime courthouse in Amsterdam-Osdorp!

In a new and spectacular development the crown witness to the prosecution, laywer Bram Zeegers (58) was found dead in his bath last night at 03:45. The police excludes no causes at all for his untimely dead. Murder (Dutch) was specifically not excluded as a cause of his death.

The girlfriend of the laywer was arrested in "the interests of the investigation" in the house where the deceased was found.

Former friend and ally of Willem Holleeder Bram Zeegers gave witness for the prosecution a week ago. His children had urged him not to testify.

Ayaan in Limbo

Dutch Premier Balkenende Friday said that Ayaan Hirsi Ali (Dutch) should have taken care of funding her own security. The funding of her security had been extended twice by Mr. Hirsch Ballin, Minister of Justice.

Balkenende urged Ayaan to go back to the US and take care of her security there. "It can not be so that she comes back merely because she is protected here".

This is an out-of-this-world idiotic statement by the Premier. Mrs. Ayaan has to fear for her live all over the world, anywhere where Muslims live. As a result of her uncompromising criticism of Islam. She has no other choice to go there where she is protected. As the US State does not protect private citizens she has to do it herself, find sponsors or rely on the Dutch state.

The Premier makes it sound as if people can simply forego their security needs.

More on "Ban the Quran"

A Dutch television program called Eenvandaag conducted a poll into the question how many youngsters in The Netherlands agree with Geert Wilders' silly idea to outlaw the Quran in The Netherlands. Earlier polls had shown that a small majority of 54 percent of ethnic Dutch youngster agree with Wilders.

It turned out that even Wilders' notion to outlaw the Quran was supported by one in five of Dutch youngster support this idea.

The Education Minister Plasterk had retaliated by suggesting that Hitler's "Mein Kampf" would be released from its ban for a day. Which is even more odd a notion than the notion to ban the Quran.

But two thirds of Dutch youth support the idea to lift the Dutch ban on "Mein Kampf".

Obviously a significant portion of the ethnic Dutch youth have left behind the Second World War as a main point of reference and regard themselves under the threat of Islam.

Days of Confusion

There is a lot wrong with this story of Somali Islam-basher Ayaan Hirsi Ali coming back to The Netherlands.

1. She is not in touch with her friends in The Netherlands, her friends have attested;
2. The American Conservative media are almost ignoring her leaving the US and
3. The fact that the US State does not want to guarantuee her security;
4. To top it off a civil servant has leaked a letter by the Minister of Justice Hirsch Ballin that she is not under any threat in the USA. There is a link to this letter in Dutch in the opening ("brief") of this article by Robin van der Kloor.

What is als becoming clear is that Ayaan Hirsi Ali has lost a lot of honour in the eyes of the Dutch population by leaving The Netherlands for the USA. Right-wing forums show the nationalist part of the population in anger against Mrs. Ayaan. This is not so strange as there is an impression that Mrs. Ayaan used our country as a stepping stone to a higher and mightier seat. And now she running back to make the tax payer pay for her protection in a foreign land.

I do not have any sympathy for Mrs. Ayaan and I have consistently recorded my distrust of the woman on this blog (See Hirsi and Sharia, enemy of the West and "Hirsi has to go"). But this must be very hard on her.

But she has left her tribe and when one leaves one's tribe or nation, one may find one day that all one's friends are good-weather-friends.

Going back to the beginning: why are the American Conservative media ignoring what is happening to her?

The value of the immigrants

Esther at Islamineurope quotes an observation by writer Zacharia Shore that European Muslims are not willing to support the European welfare state with its aging native population. Esther follows it up with a description of a Dutch TV program ("Tegenlicht") that follows some Dutch Muslims who are looking around to leave The Netherlands and even go back to the country of origin.

This is not surprising , the immigrants just came here for the money and opportunities they could not get in their own countries. Now that some of them have an education paid for the European taxpayer they show their true loyalty.

And it draws the rug from under the argument that immigrants will eventually pay back all that has been invested in them by supporting the welfare state, that needs to support the old. Naïve idiots.

People are only loyal to their own.

The welfare state is a dead end. It encourages people not to have children and thusly weakens nations. To bring in people from third world nations is financially unsound. Peter Lakeman has calculated that between 1970 and 1995 native Dutch workers supported immigrants with transfers of 70 billion guilders (35 billion Euros) through benefits and subsidies. Finally it is societally fracturous and politically extremely dangerous.

Amsterdam Mosque organisation's accounts are confiscated

I have blogged before about the building of the monumental Westermosque in Amsterdam-West. The leader of the project, a Turk by the name of Üzeyir Kabaktepe was arrested on August the 23rd. Effendi Kabaktepe was the director of Manderen BV, the company that had been awarded the contract to build the mosque by Mill Görüs, a powerful Turkish Islamic organisation. Mr. Kabaktepe had been accused of embezzling Manderen BV's money. Yesterday his arrest has been suspended.

Building organisation "Het Oosten" who was owed money by Manderen BV in the course of the mosque building project (Dutch) has confiscated the possessions and bank accounts of Manderen BV.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali's new line

Ayaan Hirsi Ali has come back to The Netherlands. Because she has not found anyone there willing to pay for her protection.

What is interesting is that she has a new line on Islam according to Rod Dreher, who quotes an interview on Reason, which is not yet online (HT Mr. Laurence Auster).

Ayaan: "Only if Islam is defeated. Because right now, the political side of Islam, the power-hungry expansionist side of Islam, has become superior to the Sufis and the Ismailis and the peace-seeking Muslims.

Reason: Don't you mean defeating radical Islam?

Hirsi Ali: No. Islam, period. Once it's defeated, it can mutate into something peaceful. It's very difficult to even talk about peace now. They're not interested in peace."


Ayaan: "There is no moderate Islam. There are Muslims who are passive, who don't all follow the rules of Islam, but there's really only one Islam, defined as submission to the will of God. There's nothing moderate about it.

Reason: So when even a hard-line critic of Islam such as Daniel Pipes says, "Radical Islam is the problem, but moderate Islam is the solution," he's wrong?

Hirsi Ali: He's wrong. Sorry about that."

In the discussion on View from the Right there is a suggestion that one of the reasons why Ayaan is moving back is because the neo-cons that she is working for at the AEI are forcing her to toe the line on "the solution to radical Islam is moderate Islam". It is this crazy belief that has enticed the US to waste its strength by bringing democracy to Iraq and Afghanistan.

That is one frightening suggestion. The neo-cons are worse than useless in the fight for the West and against Islam.

Find the article by Rod Dreher on Ayaan here.

The article has an interesting treatise of difference of the role of religion in US and European societies.

Find the discussion of the Rod Dreher's article on VFR here.

She's baaaaack!

Somali religion basher Ayaan Hirsi Ali is back in The Netherlands after living and working for several months in the USA. The well-known Islam critic was protected by the Dutch state whle working for think-tank AEI in Washington. The Netherlands is picking up the tab for her body guard/personal security detail. Ayaan returned to The Netherlands when the Dutch state said it was unwilling to continue to pay for her security, while she was working and living in the USA. Read MORE...


The Greens have already a debate in Parliament about Ayaan's security, noting that it may be necessary that international spokespeople may require Dutch protection outside the territorial borders of the Netherlands. (The interior Minister had noted that the Dutch state only has the duty to protect those who reside on Dutch soil).
