    dutch Courage!


    The Netherlands, where six per cent of the population is now Muslim, is
    scrapping multiculturalism: The Dutch government says it will abandon
    the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim
    immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands .
    A new integration bill, which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner
    presented to parliament on June 16, reads:

    "The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural
    society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch
    In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a
    central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model
    of amulticultural society.

    The letter continues:

    A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also
    demands that from its own citizens. It is necessary because otherwise
    the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home
    anymore in the Netherlands.

    The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants. For
    example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and
    the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants who ignore
    Dutchvalues or disobey Dutch law.

    The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim
    immigrants because, according to Donner: ‘It is not t government's job
    to integrate immigrants!’

    The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced
    marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim
    immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress.

    More specifically, the government will impose a ban on face-covering,
    Islamic burqas, as of January 1, 2013.

    Holland has done that whole liberal thing, and realized it may be too
    late, that"creating a nation of tribes will kill the nation itself.”


    Muslim immigrants leave their countries of birth because of civil and
    Countries like Holland and Australia have an established way of life
    that actually works, so why embrace the unworkable?
    If Muslims do not wish to accept another culture, the answer is simple:
