March 18, 2010 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Almost a million of Holland's 16 million population are Muslims - the majority coming from Africa [primarily Morocco and Somalia] and Turkey. Over 50% of the residents of Amsterdam are non-native Dutch and some areas of the city are 70% foreign born.
In the 1960s when the "special relationship" with Morocco was forged [primarily a glorified guest-worker concept] Holland's free thinkers supported a system of reparations in-kind, offered as partial atonement for the supposed sins of Dutch colonialism. The prevailing belief being that Dutch expansion/exploration had impacted North Africa negatively and it was far past time to address that perceived injustice.
Since then, often aided by bellicose foreign-born radical imams, young Moroccan men have been involved in criminal activity at a rate exponentially above their numbers in the general population.
In the latest incident, a case of vicious street crime, a youth from Veenendaal [located in central Holland near Utrecht] was beaten, robbed, partially stripped and laid across a set of railroad tracks by members of a Moroccan gang. The event was part of a crime wave in the city that has seen the mayor advising city residents to stay off the streets at night because the police couldn't protect them.
Other Dutch towns have suffered a similar fate with the mayor of Zaltbommel having received death threats after speaking out against the violence. Similar incidents have happened in the neighboring towns of Gouda and Utrecht, again perpetrated by young Moroccan hoods.
