More Dhimmytude...

The Dutch newspaper NRC.next published more dhimmytude today, in response to the commotion caused by Minister Ellen Vogelaar's interview in Trouw, which got some attention earlier on this blog. The opening lines tell a story in themselves:

"In the US, Muslims are Americans, just like the rest. Minister Vogelaar's attempt to reduce the fear for Islam recently caused angry reactions. Why is it that Muslim immigration in the US progresses so much smoother?"

The article continues by relating to a Muslim basketball event in Sterling, VA, held in the local mosque. For an hour, players yell instructions at each other in both English and Arabic. There's a lot of physical contact, all part of the game. Sajjad Ahmad, a 27 year old financial advisor who started the initiative, explains that "it's a way of showing young Muslims how to integrate in American society without giving up Islam".

According to the article, Muslims in America are much more integrated than in Europe. Americans feel that Europe is handling the immigrationproblem unwisely. Daniel Benjamin (former aide to Pres. Clinton) stated that the EU keeps immigrants too much outside of society. Well, I've got news for him: immigrants keep themselves out of society. They refuse to integrate. They chase people from their old neighbourhoods and create no-go areas for the natives. And all the while government pampers them with free money, housing and every right to make their backward sharia demands. According to Benjamin it's our fault that Muslim youth don't finish their schools. Well, he could have a point there: if you shower them with free taxpayer's money, why would they ever want to go work for a living? But I'm sure that's not what he meant.

"Americans take in new immigrant groups much easier. The fact that after 9/11 there were no successful terrorist attacks in the US, while Europe suffered losses in Madrid, London and Amsterdam (Theo van Gogh) proves this" (emphasis added). Ehh.., how exactly does that prove anything?

"America has a big heart towards other religions. Not one nation-wide paper published the Danish Cartoons, as it was felt that Muslim feelings would be hurt." How's that for dhimmytude? According to the article, a survey by Minnesota U. last year confirmed that distrust towards Muslims has increased since 9/11. But it also states that "when you ask an American whether they would have their child marry an atheist rather than a Muslim, the vast majority of the respondents will choose the Muslim". I rather doubt that, unless the survey was held among the American Muslims from the second paragraph of this post.

The article rampages on, also mentioning Ayaan Hirsi Ali. According to ex CIA analyst Marc Sagerman, she has her facts wrong. He says she cannot prove her statement that Islam itself feeds terrorism. Typical dhimmytude: a Western bureaucrat claims to be more informed than a woman, who was victim of Islam herself, fought herself free, analyzed Islam thoroughly and has a strong and valid view on the subject. Apart from that, Sagerman is simply proven wrong by 14 centuries of Islamic savagery.

Apart from anything else, a Pew Research Center Study showed that Muslims in America are only about 1% of total poulation, while this is over 5% in The Netherlands. And they have a much harder time entering America than the Netherlands: they have to cross an ocean and have an education, among other things. They are excluded from public welfare (for the first 5 years if I'm correct), while in Europe they just have to cross open borders and get welfare, housing and medical attention starting from day one.

"Only 5% of American Muslims support Al Qaeda; in Europe this percentage is much higher" (emphasis added), according to Luis Lugo, a Pew director. I think it's fair to say we get more of the backward inbreds, compared to America, and over 5 times as many, relatively speaking.

This article, intended to support Vogelaar's statements, clearly shows the leftist guilt cult that has taken over Europe and The Netherlands. It's our fault Muslims won't behave. We don't treat them well enough. Well, most Muslim crimes are tolerated, as they are induced by their religion, and critics will get labeled fascist, racist, Islamofobic, xenofobic and a number of other terms I'd never heard of about two years ago. But the lemmings are clearly heading for the cliffs.

By the way: the same article mentions a visit to Barak Obama's Islamic haidresser. Barak, of Islamic descent, frequents an Islamic hairdresser. Whether this has any bearings on his intentions after he gets elected (hope not) cannot be said, but I'd be careful. After all, given the article's info, only 1% of American hairdressers should be Islamic. Maybe it's 'just' political correctness, maybe not...

Exactly!!!
Apparently, this gentleman temporarily forgets the obvious fact that America is arguably the most hated country in the world by Muslims, outside of perhaps Israel.

Apparently, making sure a terrorist attack is not *successful* is not a compliment to security agencies, but a result of what exactly: a change of heart and sudden newfound love for America by potential, planning terrorists?

Furthermore this man treats the EU like a state, whereas England, Spain and Holland are singular countries with their own national problems.

And when it comes to the Danish cartoons, this guy pretends that Muslims are peaceful because they are respected, when in fact the question of being peaceful can only be measured by how people deal not with blind respect, but with criticism and even mockery.

In other words, a perfect example of irrationality in a man obsessed with being politically correct, the ultimate deniers of objective reality.

Recently in a discussion on the US site of Townhall I got a comment from someone said to be in the Obama campaign. This was in respect of an article by Paul Belien of Brussels Journal in an American paper and featured Vlaams Belang. Believe me, the commentary by that person was anything as bad as the usual European political correctness. Of course the by now tired and long drawn card of "anything more to the right than we are, is extreme right". I wonder how long that trick must yet fly! Holland is in a terrible state: what's more, the discourse hasn't moved an inch since I went into exile a year ago and it hadn't for at least four years prior to that. You have my sympathy.
Best regards,
Cassandra,
an exile in Greece.

The strange thing is that Americans are pointing to the way that Canada has integrated its Moslims. Canada thinks that the Australian way is the better. Aussies think that the American way is better.

The reality is that not a day goes by when the FBI or other security service in the USA, does not arrest some Moslem or Moslems on terror related charges. Some integration.

We are all deluding ourselves, that some nation somewhere or sometime, has found the magic elixir that allows Moslems and Kuffars to live in peace and harmony. There is no such elixir in time or place.

A civil war is coming to Europe, and it will not be pretty if the last two wars in Europe are anything to go by - in fact it will be much worse, it will be street by street and community by community - there will be no POWs. Beheadings of Kuffars by Moslems will take place, as they normally do when one is at war with Moslims, and the natives will react with the same ferocity.

The reason trouble with Muslims in America hasn't been at the European level is because they constitute a smaller percentage. The trouble starts when the percentage grows until it reaches critical mass.

Also, the US i think i probably inclined to be much tougher on them if they misbehave because cops in the US are actually still tough, unlike the weak, sensitive types in, for instance, Holland, where most of their activity seems taken up by giving speeding tickets and violent crimes make them weak at the knees.

But in the end, the trouble in the US will start too, unless Muslim immigration is kept to a minimum (although procreation will still increase their numbers)
