From the Italian Catholic magazine Chiesa, we get an outsiders view of the impact of islam on the Netherlands in general and Rotterdam in particular.
Here entire neighborhoods look like the Middle East, women walk around veiled, the mayor is a Muslim, sharia law is applied in the courts and the theaters. An extensive report from the most Islamized city in Europe.
Go over and read it for yourself. It is a bit of a depressing read, however. Listing a number of incidents, partly covered on this blog as well, together in one piece just shows how far we’ve let ourselves be backed into a corner.
Let’s meet the director who has brought sharia to the Dutch theaters, Salaheddine Benchikhi. He is young, modern, confident, and speaks perfect English. “I defend the decision to separate the men from the women, because here there is freedom of expression and organization. If people can’t sit where they want to, that is discrimination. There are two million Muslims in Holland, and they want our tradition to become public, everything is evolving. Mayor Aboutaleb has supported me.”
I didn’t know that last part, by the way. Maybe I need to revise the earlier, somewhat favourable opinion of the man.
