why the Moroccans? two obvious questions

Reader comment on item: Hating Geert Wilders

Submitted by myth (Germany), Mar 24, 2014 at 05:22

The Dutch press is doing a bad job here. To me there is one open and obvious question the press does not ask. Why the Moroccans? What does Wilders actually mean to say when he singles out the Moroccans? He does not target all Muslims. The Netherlands is also home to a large Turkish immigrant group. Does Wilders see the Turks as different? What do the Turks in The Netherlands think about the Moroccans and Wilders' statements? Those are the questions I would definitely ask Wilders.

Unfortunately I will not get the opportunity to ask Wilders because of the heavy police protection around him. I will however ask the first Turkish-Dutch or Dutch-Turk I see in The Netherlands as soon as I am across the border next time.
