dissent is great, but muslims have shown an amazing trait of killing or maiming those that don't agree with them. And those who don't kill or maim, largely remain silent and fail to condemn those that do. I bet the dutch are not willing to bet that a tape will change that situation.

Besides, why should the Dutch buy into this "one world" garbage and lose thier national identity?

I was really interested to see that article. I was in Copenhagen, visiting my neice who is living and going to school there this year. She is studying early childhood development. She did a study tour to the Netherlands in the early fall. She commented that the Dutch don't like the muslims being there and that they were trying to figure out a way to keep them out. NOT politically correct but the truth. They don't like 'em much in Denmark either.

A historian once explained to me that the reason Dutch homes had such flimsy lace curtains on their windows was that the culture's innate sense of privacy and attitude of tolerance allowed them to feel no need for drapes to keep out prying, judgmental eyes. More cynically, in the same conversation, an economist posited that the Dutch valued profit above all else and were willing to tolerate just about anything if it made money.
