I can't agree

Reader comment on item: Europeans Fleeing Eurabia
in response to reader comment: Dutch cowardice reaches the lowest of lows...

I can't agree that the Dutch are cowards, but I suspect you don't mean it anyway. They have made excellent citizens in Australia, never causing upheaval and tension and being very successful in whatever work they have done here. But perhaps this is your idea of cowardice! The problem with European countries like Holland is that they have been programmed to accept "the other" and to be tolerant.

I do not believe that they expected these traits to lead to so many incompatible migrants, who have no such compunctions. Even here in Australia, Muslims are demanding Sharia Law and many other privileges, re dress, one sex swimming pools, the banning of certain Christian symbols etc. They are being encoouraged in this by certain groups of Australians - I'm not sure how to 'label' them. But most Australians believe that multiculturalism (but not multiethnicity) is a failed experiment.
