“Right-wing protest banned in Venray,” from the Dutch Expatica, with thanks to Dutch Cares.
AMSTERDAM — Right-wing politician Michiel Smit has been banned from staging a protest in Venray, the scene of recent clashes between Lonsdale youths and Turkish immigrants.
Mayor Jos Waals said Saturday’s protest organised by Smit posed a threat to public order. He said vandalism could occur as protestors moved through the city streets.
But Smit — who founded the right-wing party NieuwRechts (New Right) after he was expelled from Pim Fortuyn’s Leefbaar Rotterdam (LR) — said the last word had not been said. A legal challenge to the ban is being prepared.
“We hope that an alternative can be discussed with the city council,” he said.
Waals banned the demonstration based on an emergency ordinance imposed last week. The by-law was sparked after violence erupted at the start of this month between extreme-right youths and people with Turkish ancestry after windows were smashed at a local mosque.
The Dutch youths were wearing Lonsdale clothing, which has come to identify racist Dutch youths. Lonsdale is said to be an unofficial abbreviation for ‘Laat ons Nederlanders samen de allochtonen langzaam elimineren’ (meaning in English: ‘Let us Dutch people gradually eliminate the immigrant together‘).
The national security service AIVD is now investigating the rise of right-wing Dutch youth and the threat they pose to society. Police chiefs have recently raised alarm about the rapid radicalisation of native youths….
Yet they do not face the possibility that this radicalization is being caused by their dhimmi weakness in the face of Islamic intimidation and violence.
Meanwhile, while they’re cracking down on this fearsome anti-Muslim threat, the real truth is that such a threat is declining: “Anti-Islamic violence declines,” from the Dutch Expatica, again with thanks to Dutch Cares:
The number of violent incidents against Islamic buildings and organisations has steadily declined since the high of 120 attacks reported in the month after Theo van Gogh was murdered last year. Some 44 incidents were still reported between 23 November last year and 13 March, 31 of which were directed at mosques and 13 at Islamic schools. In 33 incidents, prosecutable offences were committed, Justice Minister Piet Hein Donner and Interior Minister Johan Remkes told MPs on Wednesday. Since mid-March, violent incidents were also reported at an Islamic school in Uden and at a mosque in Venray.
