Growing 'ISLAMOPHOBIA?' in the Netherlands

“There is no moderate Islam, there is only Islam from the Qur’an, which is a fascist book. We have to win the war against Islam otherwise we will lose our cultural identity.” — Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders


hijabThe problem of ‘Islamophobia’ in the Netherlands has grown considerably in the past year, not only in terms of negative public opinion towards Muslims but also in terms of the increased violence directed at this community and the growing tendency to turn a blind eye to crimes of expression aimed at them. This is one of the most salient findings in the Racism & Extremism Monitor, a work published December 10, 2008 that is part of the running scholarly study being carried out by Leiden University and the Anne Frank House.

Besides this rise in Islamophobia, there have been two other striking findings. The right-wing extremist landscape in the Netherlands has undergone drastic change in recent years, caused not only by the sharp increase in extreme right-wing street activism but also by the public stance taken by the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, or the PVV), which has become more radical. The PVV can be called an extreme right-wing party.


Typical left-wing response, when anyone criticizes Islam, liberals like to call it far-right racism. The world ‘Islamophobia’ is manipulative rhetoric since a ‘phobia’ is an irrational fear of something. Take a look to the right colum of this page and notice that over 12,000 deadly Islamic terrorists attacks have been perpetrated just since 9/11. It isn’t Islamophobia when they really ARE trying to kill you.
