Anti-sharia Netherlands Wilders



Kudos! The pendulum is shifting in the other direction as more lawmakers are seeing the logic of Geert Wilders’ argumentation, who by the way has an excellent op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal that mentions Elisabeth’s case.

Dutch senator’s call for ban on sharia law is enthusiastically welcomed by Wilders

Monday, February 21, 2011

Islamophobiawatch: Christian Union Senator Roel Kuiper wants to amend the Dutch constitution to include a ban on Sharia, Islamic law. Senator Kuiper made his statement in an interview with newspaper Trouw.

The Christian Union politician wants to ban Islamic law because it is “not rooted in principles which form part of Dutch culture. Our rights, the way we treat each other, our norms of good and evil have all been molded by Christianity.”

Mr Kuiper argues that Islamic law is still grounded in retaliation, while the laws of a democratic constitutional state are geared toward forgiveness, correction and reconciliation. “Our laws are not based on ‘an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth’. Our legal system applies the law, but knows reconciliation must follow.” Senator Kuiper also wants to regulate the flow of money from Arab countries to Dutch mosques. The Christian Union politician says these measures are necessary “to take the Islam debate in the Netherlands a step forward”.

Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders has enthusiastically welcomed Senator Kuiper’s proposal. “Sharia is based on the Qur’an. So this means an end to head scarves, halal food, the Qur’an etc.”

  1. The West is waking up to the reality of Islam. Its working out just as I knew it would.

    Thank you Pres Bush and PM Blair mainly, but also the leading politicians, leaders and the main opposition leaders, of the entire Western world.

    1. I like your optimism DP111 but there is a long way to go.

      A major problem is the staggering ignorance of many voters, not to mention their apathy, or what I would call their pathological inertia.

      Until politicians start to sense that the winds of change are blowing and that people are starting to wake up to the agenda underpinning the cult of Islam, things will not change.

      Correspondingly, the majority of politicians will only change their stance when they sense their jobs are in jeopardy.
