Geert Wilders promoting his book "Marked for Death: Islam's War Against the West and Me" on GBTV.
Geert is spewing the same arguments with which he has dominated the Dutch integration debate for the past few years. Glenn on the other hand seems rational and doesn't buy into it. Feel free to shoot holes in Geerts' theory, it ain't that hard.
But it made me think. Hate and fear of Islam is very much present in the Netherlands. At least within a certain part of our population. Of course, the U.S. have Terry Jones, but other than that, I get the impression Islam is kind of a non-issue. Am I right about that? Can anyone tell me why this is? After all, it wasn't Amsterdam being attacked by Al Qaeda. We did have a political murder by a muslim. Mohammed Bouyeri, who killed Theo van Gogh, a dutch filmmaker, but other than that it has been pretty peaceful.
