Yes, in a few years, the people who attend this mosque will be loyal, productive members of Dutch society. Won’t they?
The Netherlands, and Europe is general, is teetering on the edge of the abyss.
Here is the Turkish text of the sermon, and here is an English translation:
“Jihad preaching in Hoorn,” by Silvan Schoonhoven, translated from “Jihadpreek in Hoorn,” De Telegraaf, February 17, 2018 (thanks to VH):
Hoorn – A war sermon about jihad and martyrdom dictated by Turkey was presented in at least one Dutch mosque yesterday. In Hoorn, from the pulpit came the declaration that the Turkish army was fighting a sacred battle and that Turks should strive for martyrdom.
With this dictated sermon, the Turkish government wants to give religious support to its controversial attack against Kurds in Syrian Afrin.
Minister Koolmees (Social Affairs) wants to sort out the case. When jihad is preached in mosques, he finds it “very serious.”
The sermon preached in Hoorn is recorded by De Telegraaf, translated and compared with the official text from Istanbul. It is unclear in how many Turkish-Dutch mosques the dictated war text was also preached yesterday. 140 prayer houses in the Netherlands are affiliated with Diyanet. This religious ministry in Ankara sends weekly sermons for all Diyanet mosques in Europe.
Dutch-Turkish imams write, according to the Diyanet representative in The Hague, their own sermons. He even claimed yesterday that the war sermon was not spoken anywhere in the Netherlands. “That is a lie. That is not possible. We have been using our own sermons for one year instead of the official texts from Turkey. The Dutch sermon for this Friday was about charity.”
In the Hoorn mosque could be heard this: “Our soldiers show the whole world that we are sacrificing everything to protect our faith, flag and country. (…) Every son of our country who, in the power of his life, drinks the sweet nectar of martyrdom, shouts at us. (…) The one who dies in the way of Allah, never call him dead, but call him alive.”…
Koolmees says that he certainly does not want Turkish-Dutch youngsters, inspired by preaching, to carry out the “Turkish jihad.” “We have to prevent that.”
