This week the Netherlands were culturally enriched with a new group, Shariah4Holland. Head on over to Esther for the scoop.
Right now the outfit is nothing more then a Youtube channel, with video highlights such as some primitive beard by the name of Abou Imran telling our Queen Beatrix she should submit to islam. Standard islamist fair, ridiculous and overbearing. According to Trouw (NL), Shariah4Holland describes itself as ‘a group of Dutch young people’ who are prepared ‘to fight for legislation from Allah’. Additionally they will only stop ‘when death overtakes us or the flag of shariah will wave above the Royal House in The Hague’. Also, Shariah4Holland looks ‘with a bleeding heart (…) at the number of so-called muslims that go to voting stations to vote for democracy’. Just the movement the Netherlands were waiting for, no?
What is quite interesting, though, is to see who in Dutch society are sympathetic to the idea of turning the Netherlands into a sharia hell-hole. The first indication was from De Dagelijkse Standaard: Dutch UN youth representative sympathizes with Sharia4Holland.
Just like any other modern organisation Shariah4Holland has a Facebook page with at the moment of writing has 128(!) friends. One of these friends is Elsa van de Loo (…) a muslim convert that represented Dutch youth with in United Nations. In that capacity she represents Dutch youth on matters of international co-operation and human rights.
Which goes quite naturally hand in hand with sympathizing with an outfit like Shariah4Holland, you will all agree.
In a follow-up DDS note van de Loo distancing herself from Shariah4Holland, saying her befriending Shariah4Holland was ‘by accident and subconscious’. But they discover a whole list of Dutch, unsurprisingly of the left persuasion, who apparently think the goals of Shariah4Holland are all swell ideas:
Samira Bouchibti, Ex-MP for the PvdA,
Jos Meeuws (board member for GroenLinks Limburg),
Nina Jurna (RTL and NRC-correspondent),
Binnur Berkholz Zengin (secretary of the Landelijke Inspraakorgaan Turken in Nederland),
Martijn de Koning (‘Dr. Scimitar‘)
In the mean time the National Co-ordinator for counter-terrorism has stated that the statements by Shariah4Holland are reason to ‘keep a finger on the pulse’. And according to Elsevier (NL): Geert Wilders wants members of this illustrious organisation summarily de-naturalized and expelled. Something we heartily agree with.
