The Netherlands to Abandon Multiculturalism
Conservative Papers ^ | April 26, 2013

The Netherlands , where six per cent of the population is now Muslim, is scrapping multiculturalism:

The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants create a parallel society within the Netherlands ..

A new integration bill, which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads:

“The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people.

In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role.”

With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society.

The letter continues: “A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens.

It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands ..
The new integration policy will place more demands onimmigrants.

For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants who ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.”

The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner;
“It is not the government’s job to integrate immigrants.” (How bloody true).

The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress.
More specifically, the government will impose a ban on face-covering, Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2013.

Holland has done that whole liberal thing, and realized – maybe too late – that creating a nation of tribes will kill the nation itself.

The future of Australia , the United States , UK and Canada may well be read here.

NOTE: Muslim immigrants leave their countries of birth because of civil and political unrest “CREATED BY THE VERY NATURE OF THEIR CULTURE.”

Countries such as Holland , Canada , the UK and Australia have an established way of life that actually works, so why embrace the unworkable?

If Muslims do not wish to accept another culture, the answer is simple; “STAY WHERE YOU ARE!!” “Or go back to where you were!”

They drove the muslim hordes out of Spain around the end of the 1400’s. They need to do it in Holland and call it the Haarlem Renaissance.

Not to be pedantic, but a start is a start is a start.

Now, a successful start is when their parliament passes the bill. But I didn't specify a successful start. I just said it was a start.

And no one does anything in life if they insist beforehand that any start must be guaranteed to be successful. Just being willing to make some effort and make a start is a good thing. I hope that, in addition, it becomes a successful start.

Spain did two things simultaneously ~ demanded that Moslem and Jewish residents become Christian, and they discovered America.

Within a century Spain had to carve North America up among the European powers of the time, and probably didn't even have enough men at arms in the homeland to defend itself ~ and by 1700 that was demonstrated.

So, you might ask, what happened to all the Moslems? First, there were some who went to other Moslem countries ~ e.g. Morocco, which had been part of a cultural and economic sphere focused on Spain. You can still find European surnames 'buried' in the morass of Moroccan surnames ~ particularly in Belgium which has been a heavy target of Moroccan re-immigration.

Most simply became Christians, that practice having been common over the previous 700 years ~ populations would adopt the religion of the local ruler, so in some centuries they'd be Moslem and in other centuries Christian. Jews performed functions a tad alien to the overwhelmingly rural environment of Spain so they rarely changed, nor were they asked to change ~ the Moslem and Christian civil laws indicate a definite social preference for keeping Jews tied down manufacturing products and conducting trade.

The Moslem environment was not comparable to the Jewish environment in Medieval Spain, nor even at the conclusion of the Reconquista. They'd had military forces and were intermarried with the most powerful noble Christian families. For the most part they simply disappeared as an identifiable separate religious entity. Later on when the Protestant Reformation seemed poised to penetrate even Spain, they became even better Catholics. End of that story.

Spain proves that moslems can be successfully integrated, but you have to use force to help that along. Then, you need to keep newcomers out. It takes a good century to do the job.

The fixation by Euro-liberals on achieving a more perfect society through “diversity” has been an act of cultural suicide in slow motion. Muslims immigrants have no intention of assimilating into a culture that they intend to protect. Once Muslims reach a sufficiently large enough minority, the Ummah-mindset takes hold and they demand that their own society be allowed to carve out exemptions and special considerations. The Muslim hive-mind would seize and destroy every indigenous cultural institution that the host country gives it control of. In short, Islam in a culture of conquest.

Now as to why liberals (er, now “progressives”) insist that society would be better off through “diversity”, please notice who is the target population. It is my theory that this is projection of self-hatred by liberals, and the effect of their policy is to destroy their own culture via dilution and being overwhelmed by cultures the liberal considers to be morally superior.

And it appears by who liberals look up to and applaud that the criteria is basically any culture is worthy except western culture that was founded on Judeo-Christian values, starting with the United States as shaped by the Founding Fathers and what is left of that culture in secular Western Europe.

Multiculturalism is a massive liberal FAIL project. Before it is over, it will be responsible for bloodshed between the indigenous peoples of Europe and the Muslims they invited to live among them.

Forced conversion is an interesting way to define "successfully integrated" but I get your point...

One thought has always provoked me...if the Spanish monarchy was unsuccessful in defeating the Moors, how much would it have changed American history...since the search for gold was the monarchy main objective in Columbus 1492 adventure... to replenish the treasuries after a long drawn out war to reconquer their lands

Let's see ~ after 700 years of war the Moslems in Spain ran up against the fact that their earlier allies/backers/cousins ~ the Arabs ~ were flat out broke themselves and the Turks were takers, not givers. That's a high spot in Turkish aspirations BTW ~ 1492 ~ they, in fact, could have discovered America. After all, they had the maps!

Spain ultimately replenished its own accounts by discovering silver, not gold. That was the origin of the Spanish milled dollar, or piece of eight ~ it's still in use as a valid 'currency' ~ the US credits it with a value of exactly $1 US dollar ~ for trade. Obviously all those coins are worth much more these days, but the Spanish venture into silver was quite judicious.

The Hapsburgs themselves were always looking for silver in Europe as well as the Americas. The Stid family operated a major silver operation in Bohemia for the Hapsburgs ~ they invented the 'thaler'. The same Stid family pioneered West Central New York, but I don't know if they discovered any silver ~ maybe we just don't know. Stid Hill is all they left behind for the heirs, and it's worthless.

Although we think of the Hapsburgs as having a predominantly German origin, they really didn't. King Filipe I's grandmothers were part and parcel of the ring of nobles based in Brittany and the Loire valley who'd controlled European gold and silver supplies for centuries. As many supposedly Spanish Conquistedores sailed out of St. Malo (in Brittany) as they did out of all Spanish and Italian ports combined.

Failure to eradicate the Moslems as an active entity in Spanish politics would probably have made no difference in the early exploitation of American wealth.

King Filipe might have found resistance to providing the Spanish fleet to the Catholic League for the purpose of sinking the Turkish fleet ~ or maybe not. By that time Moslems in Spain were pretty isolated from that crowd. On the other hand, the Protestant Reformation might have held an attraction for them and that would have made a big difference.

In short, Islam in a culture of conquest.

Because it has to be in order to survive and thrive. Otherwise, it is stagnant at best and normally regressive. What a totally different world this would be if oil had not been found in the ME.

Europe has done just that cyclically throughout the millennia of its history. Generally through genicidal wars.

Old problem. Old solution.

You will find that I have been predicting it would get to this point and that Europe will choose the same solution when socialism runs out of money since I have been on this site.

I have gotten a hell of a lot fewer people debating the accuracy of my prognostication this past year.

The Dutch are notoriously slow to anger, but the Muslims seem to have reached the threshold. The really interesting part is that every other European country will be watching to see what happens.

And also the effect of ending multiculturalism. With the big question: how does it effect the economy?

If we don't end multiculturalism, how will it effect the economy? Maybe it won't matter after they've killed us all.

I have in-laws in England and Italy, and they tell me the same thing. Once the Moslems really try to take over, they’re in for a rude awakening. The Europeans really have ethnic cleansing down to a science. Just ask the Huguenots.

In multiculturalism, all groups and tribes get to have an ethnic idenity, culture and history EXCEPT for Western people. Western people’s idenity, history and culture is degraded by the superior invaders/racists of multiculturalism.

Immigrants bring their cultures with them... Would anyone in their right mind want to live in any middle eastern country? Not as a tourist - but as a citizen? Same goes for the people who break into our country and demand citizenship... their culture and values come with them...
