The Netherlands, the Center of Islam (For Now)

Whereas the Dutch Intelligence Service AIVD had just concluded that domestic terrorism was largely under control and it is time to focus the attention abroad, we were reminded last week that the terror threat is still raging unabated. The tally at 'The Religion of Peace pieces' of terrorist attacks since 9/11, at the time of writing stood at 15,152.

The Telegraaf newspaper announced last week that the Netherlands is yet again the venue of a convention of the Muslim Brotherhood (that alone is telling in itself).
The theme of the
convention of radical Muslims is: 'Islam in Holland, meditations on present and future horizons'. The organizers say to aim at a 'positive dialogue between Muslims and Dutch political, intellectual and religious activists in view of erasing aany misunderstandings they may have in relation to Islam'. (...) [whoa, do they know how to play the politically correct violin ...]
- Caption: design of the Amsterdam money pit, the Westermoskee. The plan has now been shelved indefinitely -  
Dutch Intelligence annual report contains a caveat for the Muslim Brotherhood's efforts (...) Whereas the Muslim Brotherhood appears to be aiming at creating a Muslim-friendly climate in Europe, it is imaginable that the orthodox interpretation of Islam will lead to tensions with the foundations of the democratic rule of law."
You don't say! Brought to us by the people who are supposed to work for our safety and the survival of  democracy! Elsevier Magazine has better news:
Raymond de Roon, MP for Wilders' Freedom Party has requested an emergency debate with Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin (CDA, Justitie) about the Muslim Brotherhood convention. 'Qaradawi has declared Fatwas approving suicide attacks. That's incitement', says De Roon..
That's putting it mildly! Who is this Qaradawi?
One of the participating organizations is the International Support Organization, an affiliate of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, or the Muslim Brotherhood. It is an organization led by the radical Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi from Qatar. (...) Qaradawi leads the Union of Good, an institution blacklisted by the US as a Hamas pay master. (...) 
While a Muslim Labor candidate for Parliament is still able to disseminate his hatespeech on Twitter, as yet unempeded by his party, another high listed Labor candidate went as far as to propose in 2005 to invite Qaradawi to the Netherlands. Ahmed Marchouch, an aide to the former mayor of Amsterdam, Job Cohen - now the Labor PM wannabe, has all the makings of a snake like Tariq Ramadan, a postmodern Muslim who knows how to wield the weapon of taqiyah like no other.

Vote Labor, I'd say [/sarc].

What else do we know of Qaradawi?

In 2004 Middle East Quarterly had an interview with the respected Muslim cleric about the Fatwas he declared, for example over Christmas. And while we're on the subject, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, a.k.a. the Christmas bomber, a.k.a. the panty bomber, a.k.a. the crotch bomber had a marked admiration for Qaradawi.

Perhaps we've already forgotten, but if Jasper Schuringa hadn't bought a cheap ticket for his winter vacation, the religion of peace would have given us a 'man-made disaster' for a Christmas present. And some folk still manage to hold on to their illusions.

In 2004 the spirituele leader of the Muslim Brotherhood called in a Fatwa for the killing of our men and women in uniform in Afghanistan. Who knows, perhaps Qaradawi will be able to finally convince our Islam advocates, appeasers and apologists that Islam is here to conquer America and Europe. Read all about it in this article by Andy McCarthy.

Another authority in the field of Islam is Andrew Bostom, author of "The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism" and "The Legacy of Jihad". On his weblog he writes:

These orthodox Islamic views have been reiterated by Yusuf Al Qaradawi—“spiritual” leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, head of the European Fatwa Council, and immensely popular Al-Jazeera television personality, as well as Muhammad Sayyid Tantawi, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University, the most prestigious center of Muslim learning in Sunni Islam. Sheikh Qaradawi openly endorsed murderous Palestinian homicide bomber “martyrdom” operations against innocent Israeli citizens (all of whom are considered “combatants” who obstruct the “call to Islam”) during a fatwa council convened in the heart of Europe (in Stockholm, July, 2003). For the past decade, Sheikh Tantawi, who is the nearest equivalent to a Muslim Pope, has also confirmed the legitimacy of homicide bombing of Jews, characterizing these grisly attacks as…the highest form of Jihad operations…

Some people refuse to accept the obvious. As we've seen in "The Power of Ideas" Islam is different from any other religion on essential points. White Al Qaeda franchise-takers like Jihad Jane have delivered proof positive that terrorism has nothing to with race or racism, but everything with the ideology of Islam. Otherwise peaceful Indonesians suddenly tended to violence once they became Muslim.

Dutch author Leon de Winter, currently residing in LA, explained last week on PJM in 'a letter from Bibi Netenyahu to Barack Obama', what is at the core of the 'Israeli-Palestinian conflict':
(...) You really believe that Muslims will be confident and satisfied members of their societies the moment you open an embassy in East Jerusalem, don’t you? You really believe that potential suicide bombers will start studying a Scandinavian language, instead of destroying whole families? You really believe that Palestinians will immediately stop firing rockets at Israel the moment the Palestinian flag is atop the Temple Mount? 
No more improvised explosive devices killing your military heroes in Afghanistan, no Taliban “students” throwing acid in the faces of schoolgirls. Everything changes the moment Palestine is born … you really, truly believe it, don’t you? You really believe that Muslims will love you the moment you bring the Israeli Jews to their knees.
 (...)  It is not about us, this misnamed Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It is about the core values of the Islamic world. (...) Some geopolitical problems are complicated on the surface, but deeper there is often a simple truth which highly educated left-wing academics like you fail to recognize. The truth of our conflict with the Arabs isn’t longer than two dozen words: Muslims don’t accept non-Muslims ruling a piece of land that the Muslims consider sacred Islamic land until the end of times. (...) >>>
I take it that Sheikh Qaradawi will be requiring a visa to enter the country and abuse it as a soap box to declare Fatwas over Western civilization. It's up to the government to show at last that they take the defense of the democratic rule of law seriously.

Qaradawi can take his poisonous taqiyah and spit it elsewhere, thank you very much!
