The Netherlands Without Islam

Hat tip Gallia Watch

Dutch politician Geert Wilders has a partner in the Dutch Parliament. Machiel de Graaf, a member of Wilders' PVV party gave a speech calling for an end to Islamic immigration and the closure of mosques in the Netherlands.  His theme is "The Netherlands without Islam".  The speech is 20 minutes long in Dutch with English sub-titles. I am cross-posting this from the French blog, Gallia Watch.

I know liberal readers will denounce this speech as racist and intolerant. If so, please weigh in, but you should be prepared to specify where de Graaf is wrong as to his points. As always, I invite my Muslim readers to comment and engage in a respectful dialogue.

Not a real fan of Islam myself, but folks like these make me sympathize with Muslims.

Interesting how few of de Graaf's fellow MP's remained in the room to listen to his speech. His only real audience is among the right wing blogs.

I get it, but what parts of his speech can you say are false? I will admit that I myself avoid the comments he made about Mohammad, but are you familiar with Holland and the situation there?

Mostly All of his speech is false.

How can one blame Islam for campaign pamphlets in the Netherlands being printed in Turkish (especially since Arabic is the language of Islam)?

Imagine if someone were to blame Christianity/Catholicism for voter guides in America being printed in Spanish.

If mostly all of his speech is false, why can you only give me one example?

"Without Islam, the Netherlands would be a wonderful country."

The Netherlands IS a wonderful country already. According to many global survey's the Dutch people are among the happiest in the world. The Party of Freedom feeds on Hate and Sadness.

"Without Islam, the Netherlands would not lose something like 7.2 billion [Euros] a year on mass immigration."

As you know only Muslim receive Welfare and Social Services /Sarc

7.2 Billion Euro's is still just a fraction of the amount we spend here in the US on Christian immigrants from Latin America.

How can you compare what a country like the Netherlands spends on anything with what the US spends. Of course it is a fraction. Keep'em coming.

While we're at it, let's close all the Roman Catholic churches in the USA. Never should have let those Papists in, in the first place. Jews neither. Close the synagogues too. What was George Washington thinking?

And what hate and calls for violence are coming out of churches and synagogues?
