Teachers of the Mozaiek elementary school are very concerned about the radicalization of their pupils. Mohammed B. [Bouyeri :The killer of Van Gogh] is revered as a hero, when Hirsi Ali is shown on school TV they mimic ‘shooting’ movements. When they visited the Anne Frank House pupils said “they deserved it” and
"They should have killed more Jews".

The radical behavior is not new. The teachers of the Christian elementary school say they ask for years now attention to this problem. Teacher Marlene van den Berg: "After the September 11 attacks, they made a St. Nicolas [children feast where presents are packet in self made creative wrappings] surprise of the WTC towers, complete with flames and falling people. We started the dialog: What do you mean, why do you do this? Then you get a ruthless answer: They deserved it, they had to do it a long time ago"...

Hat tip to Dutch Report. I recommend you bookmark that site.

On a population of 16 million, The Netherlands count 1.6 million, or 10%, non-western immigrants. 1 million of them is Muslim. Somali-born Dutch MP Ayaan Hirsi Ali, who spoke out against Islam and who since the fall of 2004 has to be kept under close guard on a Dutch marine basis in central Amsterdam because of death threats by Islamic extremists, estimates that 2/3 of those 1 million Muslims are NOT integrated, nor do they show any desire to do so. Criminality among young Moroccans, who make up the bulk of the Muslim population in The Netherlands, is rampant: 80% of crimes committed in Utrecht, famous for its university, is contributed to Moroccan youths. It is estimated that by the middle of the century the Dutch population will count some 18 million plus inhabitants, of which 32% will be immigrants or their descendants. The number of native Dutch emigrating from their homeland is growing year after year, and in 2004 passed the peak of 1954.

"My name is Walter Moore and I'm running for mayor, and you know what? I don't speak Spanish and I don't intend to learn." -- L.A. mayoral candidate Walter Moore

I don't think he'll win but I do admire his refreshing lack of pandering.
