The Islamic supremacists along with their socialist leftist companions are out with their clubs. This time it’s in the Netherlands, and the hunted victim is US Ambassador Peter Hoekstra.
A mocking article in the Independent — “Donald Trump’s new ambassador to Netherlands struggles to defend claim Muslims ‘burned’ Dutch politicians” — zeroes in on a 2015 statement by Hoekstra, and he and Trump are now being bashed with it.
Hoekstra stated back then “about the chaos the ‘Islamic movement’ had brought to the Netherlands”:
There are cars being burned, there are politicians that are being burned….. and yes, there are no-go zones in the Netherlands.
Despite the hoopla about this old Hoekstra reference, the much larger issue is his accuracy in warning about “the Islamic movement” and “no-go zones.” In a Bloomberg report –-“Why the Dutch Turned Against Immigrants” — the demise of a once peaceful, respectable, picturesque neighborhood is described. It turned into a squalid place where “people started experiencing bad things — cars scratched, elevators urinated in.” A mosque with questionable ties to jihad terror was also built there.
Some more concerns for the Netherlands:
In a parliamentary speech in the Netherlands, Geert Wilders stated: “In our country today, Christians are being told: ‘We want to murder you all.’ Jews receive death threats. Swastika flags at demonstrations, stones go through windows, Molotov cocktails, Hitler salutes are being made, macabre black ISIS flags wave in the wind, we hear cries, such as ‘F-ck the Talmud,’ on the central square in Amsterdam.”
While no politician was literally burned in the Netherlands, there are certainly those who were “burned” in the figurative sense. Among them was Wilders, who has been dragged into court several times on spurious “hate speech” charges, and must travel with a team of bodyguards everywhere for the crime of offending Islam. Pim Fortuyn, “an energetic populist leader who had become one of the first Dutch politicians to actively criticize Islam, was shot dead in 2002.” Also, Ayaan Hirsi Ali was once a Dutch politician, who collaborated on the movie Submission, which was critical of Islam’s treatment of women, with film director Theo van Gogh. Van Gogh was murdered on an Amsterdam street by a Muslim who said he did it because van Gogh offended Islam. He left a note including a hit list of future victims, including Hirsi Ali, who now also lives under guard.
No-go zones are a real threat all across Europe, and the Netherlands is no exception. In neighboring Belgium, only 118 miles away, police have lost control of the dangerous no-go zone of Molenbeek ; a car fire epidemic was also recently reported to be raging in the also nearby no-go zone in Stockholm. Sweden is less than 800 miles from the Netherlands.
Sweden is on the verge of civil war. Policing is so difficult that 80 percent of police want to quit their jobs. Sweden’s National Police Commissioner, Dan Eliasson, pleaded for assistance on TV, stating that “Swedish police forces no longer can uphold the law and therefore must ask all good powers in the country to support them.” Swedish Chief Prosecutor Lise Tamm has described the Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby is like “a war zone”; Muslim migrants turned Sweden’s largest shopping center into a no-go zone, intimidating police, harassing girls and openly dealing drugs.
Pete Hoekstra is being disparaged wrongly for his important warnings, in a global climate that features a glaring double standard regarding public statements from those on the left and those on the right. Take some examples close to home:
Leftist so-called feminist leader Linda Sarsour tweeted out about activists Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Brigitte Gabriel: “I wish I could take their vaginas away,” while she and her supporters ignore the practices of child marriage, polygamy, honor violence, FGM and the overall inferior status of women under the sharia.
Islamic hate preachers who call for the death of Jews and Zionists and the destruction of Israel, even in the U.S. and Canada, also escape accountability.
University of California professor Hatem Bazian co-founder of the anti-Israel Students for Justice in Palestine, called for an intifada in America. He suffered no professional consequences.
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apologized to jihadist Omar Khadr and paid him 10.5 million dollars for allegedly being treated too harshly in Gitmo. The Prime Minister also welcomes returning Islamic State jihadists back home, and meets privately with Joshua Boyle, a suspected jihadist with 15 criminal charges.
Canadian Liberal MP Chris Bittle has labeled anti-Islamic State protesters “white supremacists.”
Hoekstra, meanwhile, is mocked in public. Political reporter Roel Geeraedts states that “he believed that Hoekstra’s behaviour confirmed some suspicions the Dutch have about the Trump administration.” Geeraedts wasted no opportunity to bash Trump as he made himself out to be spokesperson of “the Dutch” in a broad sweep. Dutch reporters focused on the one inaccuracy in Hoekstra’s statement:
Mr. Ambassador, can you mention any example of a Dutch politician who was burned in recent years?
Public space for discussion, intellectual investigation, inquiry and even necessary scrutiny in the West is narrowing. Woe be unto anyone who warns about the hijrah, the jihad threat and the Muslim Brotherhood’s ambitions. He or she will be accused of racism, Islamophobia, white supremacism, xenophobia, intolerance, etc. Even Ayaan Hirsi Ali was called “a white supremacist” by a group of Muslim women ahead of her planned visit to Australia.
