"Just as soon as Amsterdam seemed to be
settling down and the curfews and military
presence seemed to be quieting the population,
renewed violence broke out across the city.
The city was paralyzed by Islamic riots and
demonstrations. A local Salafi Imam, Fawaz
Jneid, declared that the Muslim Slotervaart
district, home of Mohammed Bouyer, the
murderer of Theo Van Gogh, was now under
Islamic law.
Utrecht was taken over by Islamists, who
stormed local government buildings and
burned them to the ground.
In The Hague, a group of officers of Islamic
descent led the army in a coup. The ranks of
the military, which were forty percent Muslim,
overran the House of Parliament and local
administrative offices, replacing local police
with members of the Muslim Brotherhood
and Al Queda.

jails, which was seventy percent of the prison

imams in charge. Salafists declared Holland an
Islamist regime, and Imam Fawaz Jneid was
declared “emir of the faithful.”

Malmö. Sweden’s third largest city, which

Muslim communities throughout Europe
also declared their neighborhoods “Islamic
Jurisdictions”: in Roubaix, France; in Bradford,
England; in Copenhagen, Denmark; and in
the Sint-Jans-Molenbeek neighborhood of
The French military continued to battle
guerilla wars in urban areas. Muslim
refugees, fleeing Belgium and Germany
into France and Switzerland, were turned
away at the borders. They had nowhere to
go, open targets for vigilante groups.
Hundreds were killed.
