I wrote at some length yesterday about Muslim advocacy groups crying “racism” at any hint of criticism “” but this one is far beyond that. It shows that large numbers of Muslims do not share many of the values that most Westerners assume they share. It also shows that at least some are demanding that the Dutch abandon all vestiges of Christianity in their culture.
The blogspot Live From Brussels (thanks to all who alerted me to this) tells us about Dutch artist Chris Ripke, who painted a mural containing the words “Thou shalt not kill” (“Gij zult niet doden”) in response to the murder of Theo van Gogh:
But because the head of the nearby mosque complained to the police that this was ‘offensive’ and ‘racist’, the cops came and sent in city workers to sandblast the mural. A local journalist, Wim Nottroth, who wanted to protest against this by standing in front of the mural was arrested. His story, in Dutch, here. Video of the event, here.
It has come to this.
