Reader comment on item: Anti-Islam & Anti-Islamism Trumps Islam in the West: Polls

Submitted by Michael van den Laan (Netherlands), Nov 29, 2013 at 04:58

I am a dutchman and I have just read your artikel about Wilders. It is very well written and contains a wealth of information, Mr Wilders is by far the most important politician/personality in the Netherlands today. Since the murder of the nationalist Dr Fortuyn in 2002 and film- and opinionmaker Theo van Gogh in 2004, the Netherlands has been engulfed in violence and clashes with the muslim community in a scale never seen before in our small well organized and tolerant country. Right up to the smallest community level, Dutch people have witnessed a dramatic 'changing of the guard' in their neighborhoods and streets. Everywhere muslim people started to move in, the typical Dutch social infrastructure slowly disappeared and disturbances and irritations appeared. Within 30 years the Netherlands have seen a enormous immigration flow which has risen from next to zero to almost 1 milion muslims. Mind you, our very small country now harbours 16 million people, so you can immediately see what the problem is. Especially if you know that most muslims always group together in the larger cities, the problems all come together. Mr Wilders was not the first politician to warn against the islamic influx in the country. In the 1980's the first voices started to be heard, mostly in the extreme left and right in Dutch politics. Such as the nationalist Janmaat. Not much happened (although the right was vilified and demonized).

In the 1990's Mr Wilders old party, the VVD continued a very polite discourse on the subject, but again were margelized by the political correct mainstream, supported by a even more virulent political press.Then came the nationalist Dr Fortuyn in 2002, taking the country by storm only to get murderd right before the elections, after an all out frenzy by the press and the multicultural elite, demonizing him as the next Nazi Fuhrer who would open the deathcamps again, this time for the muslims. He was executed by an extreme leftwing activist (who btw, will be released from prison shortly, serving only... 12 years). The rest is history. Are the Dutch going nuts? No. People are responding ever louder to the call: enough is enough. Stop islam, stop islamization, stop islamic immigration. Stop importing intolerance. Next year the there will be new elections on Europe. Let's wait and see if Wilders with his nationalist friends like Le Pen from front national can stop win the election. I Am going to vote for the nationalistic PVV. .
