Fighting back

The Dutch have been the greatest anti-Dhimmis in Europe in recent times. First it was the production of a film by Theo van Gogh, then came the Jllands-Posten's publication of cartoon depictions of the prophet Mohammed and the resulting refusal of the Dutch prime-minister to meet protesting Muslim world leaders, then came the statement by the Dutch PM that he would give the Turkish PM a private lesson on Freedom of Speech. I'm probably missing a couple of other examples. But you get the picture.

Future anti-Dhimmi initiatives include the production of an film critical of Islam's treatment of gays and lesbians and now (Hat Tip: Dhimmi Watch), the Dutch are considering banning the Burqa:
The Dutch immigration minister says she will look into the legality of banning the burqa, the robes worn by some Muslim women to cover their bodies.

Rita Verdonk made the pledge after a majority in parliament said it would support such a ban.

The proposal was put forward by independent politician Geert Wilders.

"That women should walk the streets in a totally unrecognisable manner is an insult to everyone who believes in equal rights," he said.

"This law is a comfort to moderate Muslims and will contribute to integration in the Netherlands," he added in a statement....

If the Netherlands does decide to ban the burqa, it will be the first European country to do so.



[Update: Corrected entries with Danes -> Dutch. I am forever getting the two confused. Need to figure out a good way of remembering this. Thanks SixDaysMore #1]
