Most of the people here don't like what's happening right now with the murders and the torching of mosques, churches and islamic elementary schools. You may not hear about it in the US, but most if not all Islamic organizations in the Netherlands have rejected the killings.
One of the main concerns right now is that none of the Imams are actually trained in the Netherlands but hired from abroad. We can not control them. Some of them may well be radical extremists. This is a concern that is, only now, being dealt with by the government. A bit late, but never late then never.
I think it is time for the Dutch government to deport these people.
I'd also like you to define those people. And also please tell me where you want us to send them? Please bare in mind that not many countries are going to accept them. Not even the countries where they/their ancestors came from.
They are not part of Dutch society, they segregate themselves, and have "kept that society at arm's length, despising its freedoms.
Fair enough, let's throw out everyone that segragates himself. But that would of course have to include the strong christians that enver seem to leave the Veluwe (can't blame them, beautiful area)? The gypsies that rarely set foot outside their camps? The Chinese that never seem to leave their restaurants? By your logic they would have to be deported as well?
I already know your response "hey, they have not killed anyone". That's true, but neither have the mayority of muslims that have segregated themselves.
This reticence still applied in February 2002, when Mr. Fortuyn...
Speaking of mr. Fortuyn, he was not killed by a muslim. He may have been a pain in the arse for muslims, but they did not kill him or (as far as I know) threaten to do so.
: RJpieces, why are you telling us what to do when you ahve repeatedly told us not to critisize with US policies. Just wondering!
