Missing The Boat so Badly
HT to Little Green Footballs on this.
The piece I quote though is only after two large paragraphs of the viewpoint that Ayan Hirsi Ali deserves exactly what she is getting and by extension Theo Van Gogh. Of course the article refers to Dutch intellectuals "Since the murder [of Theo Van Gogh], a surprising number of native-born Dutch intellectuals have come around to the Muslim point of view". Of course, they refuse to defend their culture in lieu of surrender.
Well Dutch intellectuals here is an intellectual idea for you. It is called the bloody fringes of Islam. Where Islam is solidly in the majority or minority peace reigns. Where it is a small majority or large minority it isn't peace that reigns. The Netherlands is nearing that bloody edge. I suppose these intellectuals look forward to the days when there will be more Anne Franks.
