    Proposed Dutch Bill on Islam

    Author(s):

    Summary: 

    Greetings to all who shall see or hear these present! Be it known: Thus We consider that it is desirable to designate Islam for what it really is and to, therefore, establish a ban on certain Islamic manifestations in the public space. We, therefore, having heard the Advisory Division of the Council of State of the Kingdom, and in consultation with the States General, have approved and decreed as We hereby approve and decree:

    Section 1 Islam is not a religion or a philosophy of life but a violent, totalitarian ideology.

    Section 2 1. The following Islamic manifestations are banned:

    a. mosques

    b. schools

    c. the Koran

    d. wearing a burka or a niqab

    2. The term used under subsection l.a should also be taken to mean every space used as an Islamic house of worship or prayer room unless it takes place in a domestic setting.

    3. All educational institutions referred to under subsection 1 .b that teach Islamic ideology are banned.

    4. The printing, distributiori or sales of the Koran referred to in subsection 2.c is banned.

    5. Wearing a burka or a niqab referred to in subsection 1.d .is banned unless it takes place in a domestic setting.

  • Summary: 

    "Not long ago Professor Koopmans found that as much as seventy percent of Muslims find Islamic rules more important than secular laws." -- Geert Wilders Research also points out that 11 percent of Dutch Muslims in the Netherlands are prepared to use violence on behalf of their religion. That is a 110,000 people, twice the size of the Dutch army!" – Geert Wilders I personally believe there are extremist people and moderate people. But I do not believe in two kinds of Islam. There is only one.... You get your head chopped off should you wish to interpret Islam....People who want to come to the Netherlands from Islamic countries should think: this is not a place we want to go to! And we do not do this to bully Muslims, but to keep the Netherlands of the future a free Netherlands." -– Geert Widers

  • Summary: 
    • The Dutch have officially been enjoying the feast of Pentecost since 1815, but the church wants it replaced by an official holiday on Eid-al-Fitr, the day marking the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

    • We are too tolerant to intolerance. We think that by allowing freedom to the enemies of freedom we prove to the world that we stand for freedom. But in reality, by refusing to draw boundaries to our tolerance, we are handing away our freedom.

    • If we want to remain the free and tolerant society which we used to be, we must realize that the West has a concrete identity. Our identity is not Islamic, but based on Judaism, Christianity and humanism. Our freedoms result from this identity.
