An recent opinion poll in the Netherlands found that 44% of Dutch are becoming more afraid than before of a clash between Islam and the West. Almost half think that Islam and democracy are not compatible and 40% think it is a violent religion.
Bravo! To all those who burned Danish flags and vilified an entire nation because of what an independent paper did there: bravo! You just lost Holland as well. One of the most open and tolerant countries in the world. Their tolerance knows no limits to the extent that the Dutch left Amsterdam to the immigrants! I remember the last time I visited Amsterdam was for just one day, I had lunch at a Korean restaurant and got a free Coke from an Egyptian cafe. I bought Dutch souvenirs from a shop owned by a Chinese!
