Eurabias huvudstad: Rotterdam

Från Chiesa via Klein Verzet:
Here entire neighborhoods look like
the Middle East, women walk around
veiled, the mayor is a Muslim, sharia
law is applied in the courts and the
theaters. An extensive report from
the most Islamized city in Europe
Holland is an extraordinary test case.
It is the country in which individual
license is the most extensive – to the
point of permitting euthanasia on
children – in which the Christian identity
is most faded, in which the Moslem
presence is growing most boldly.Here,
multiculturalism is the rule. But the
exceptions are dramatic: from the
killing of the anti-Islamist political
leader Pim Fortuyn to the persecution
of the Somali dissident Ayaan Hirsi
Ali to the murder of the director Theo
Van Gogh, condemned to death for
his film "Submission," a denunciation
of the crimes of Muslim theocracy.
Fortuyn's successor, Geert Wilders,
has lived under 24-hour police protection
for six years.
There is one city in Holland where this
new reality can be seen with the naked
eye, more than anywhere else.
Here, entire neighborhoods look as if they
have been lifted from the Middle East,
here stand the largest mosques in Europe,
here parts of sharia law are applied in
the courts and theaters, here many of
the women go around veiled, here the
mayor is a Muslim, the son of an imam.
This city is Rotterdam, Holland's second
largest city by population, and the largest
port in Europe by cargo volume.
The following is a report on Rotterdam
published in the Italian newspaper "il Foglio"
on May 14, 2009, the second in a major
seven-part survey on Holland.
The author, Giulio Meotti, also writes for the
"Wall Street Journal."
Next September, his book-length survey on
Israel will be published.
The photo above is entitled "Muslim women
in Rotterdam." It is from an exhibition in
2008 by the Dutch photographers Ari
Versluis and Ellie Uyttenbroek.
