Dutch Foreign Minister Quizzed Over Matters Raised By ICLA Victims of Sharia Project

By  • on May 1, 2014

Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Hague

The Dutch Foreign Minister has been questioned about matters raised by the article that appeared on this site on 29 April.  The article Paul Weston – Victim of Sharia: Arrested For Quoting Winston Churchill inspired questions from Geert Wilders and Raymond de Roon of the Party for Freedom (PVV).  It related to the treatment of British politician Paul Weston who was arrested for quoting Winston Churchill in the increasingly free speech averse United Kingdom.

We welcome such interest in our Victims of Sharia Action Network, a project that we established to monitor such human rights abuses.  We encourage other political parties across Europe and the wider world to raise these issues that are of profound concern to those who value freedom, including in the increasingly repressive Western world.

A translation of the reference to our article appears on the Gates of Vienna website:
