Liberal Holland

It is two years ago this month that Holland had a shock.

The Dutch people are now frightened by the fast-growing immigrant quarters of their cities. In a few years’ time, half the citizens of Amsterdam will be from ethnic minorities, most of whom will be Muslims.

It seems that the Dutch are afraid that their liberal views, lax laws on drugs and racial tolerance may backfire on them. Theo van Gogh made a film showing verses from the Koran, which called for the subjugation of women, projected onto the bodies of naked girls.

Mohammed Bouyeri did not like this film. In Amsterdam, in broad daylight, he shot Van Gogh and cut off his head. This happened in November 2004.

Will this behaviour be repeated throughout Europe? It is difficult to think of a just and workable solution to the problem of immigration. It is sure to get worse. Is it possible for different races with different customs and religions to live together in harmony?

Perhaps Prince Charles should not become defender of the “faiths” when (if) he comes to the throne: maybe we should be a secular nation and ban all religions.
