Skip to comments.Dutch: Mass Immigration Our Biggest Mistake Ever

AMSTERDAM, 27/03/08 - The majority of the Dutch are negative on Islam and immigration. Additionally, their knowledge of Dutch history is meagre, according to a survey by three history professors.
According to 56 percent of the Dutch, Islam is a threat to the Dutch identity. As well, 57 percent named admitting large groups of immigrants as "the biggest mistake in Dutch history".
The results come from the History Monitor. This survey was carried out among a representative group of 1,069 people by De Volkskrant newspaper, Historisch Nieuwsblad history journal and TV programme Andere Tijden in consultation with history professors James Kennedy, Niek van Sas and Hans Blom.
The History Monitor presented 20 multiple-choice questions on Dutch history and identity. Only for six questions did over 60 percent know the right answer. The worst answered was the question 'Since which century has the Netherlands been a kingdom'; only 17 percent knew the Netherlands was a republic before the 19th century.
Also remarkable is the self-criticism on the Netherlands' slavery past. Only 21 percent correctly gave the Netherlands a 5 percent share in the world slave trade; the rest estimated a higher share. The researchers attribute the overestimating to a feeling of shame, born of structural and years-long media attention for the dark sides of the dominant role the Netherlands played in the world in the 17th century.
All in all, the average Dutch respondent scored 5.2 for national historical knowledge. Immigrants scored 4.9 percent on average. The over 65s averaged 6.0; conversely, the 16-34 age group averaged just 4.4.
We’d better wake up, too.
In your country and throughout the rest of Europe is there an illegal immigrant issue like we have?
If you were going to speculate on how all this will play out what and when will this come to a head?
The West needs to deny in migration to all but true asylum seekers from nations with rebarbative policies concerning race & religion, i.e., muslim states across the middle east and beyond (plus a few others such as Cuba, Venezuela, Korea).
The Dutch are too busy murdering Dutch babies via abortion and killing folks with involuntary euthanasia. Combine that with widespread birth control and the Dutch are vanishing as a race.
The Dutch are addicted to immigrants as a result of the negative native population growth of the natives. Who else will do the work? Eventually Holland will be Islamic.
Same exact phenomenon is occuring in Blue State USA, only with hispanics.
This is progress — the people now realize it was a horrendous mistake. Probably the real share of The Netherlands that thinks this way is even higher than this leftist poll. When are they going to start demand the expulsioin of the Muslims? That has to be the logical conclusion from saying it was the worst mistake in Dutch history.
And after taking into account the “Osama Obama Effect” you know the actual percentages are much higher.
just like in our country, we have Hooters being celebrated as "normal" and yet we bemoan the overly sexualized youth, abortion, breast implants and the superficiality that Hollywood group has wrought....promiscuity....homosexuality...child abuse.......
I just don't get it....never will......
so sure, the Dutch should be worried about the Neanderthals that are rushing to their shores .......but IMO they gave up on a decent, good society long ago.....
Yes. So when do the mass deportations begin?
Has anyone forwarded this article to Jorge Bush or Juan MacCain yet?
We must learn from the Dutch. Why should we let one Islamist emmigrate? Is multiculturalism suicidal?
Yes, lots of other people all over Europe are starting to wake up. Like Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France and Italy. There a lot of politicians start to openly oppose immigration.
There are lots of illigal immigrants, mostly in France, the Netherlands but most want to go to the UK.
And how it will play out? I think Europe is too far gone to be saved. And one day, when muslims come close to being 50% of the population, things will go downwards quickly.
