Riots in Geldermalsen, Netherlands – shots fired by police

An original article explaining the situation in a Dutch village where locals rioted against yet another proposed government funded refugee center for muslims in population replacement numbers.

Just don’t look. It will be OK

By SIMONXML with much thanks

Dutch cheese, Dutch butter, Dutch milk, Dutch cows, dairy products have always been a major part of the Dutch economy and a reason for its fame. With nearly 4.5 million cows, each producing approximately 12 tons of manure per year, that is an incredible amount of BS. The Dutch solution is to inject it back into the soil, bit by bit, from February to September, working on the principle that if you spread it thin, no-one will complain.

So too with refugees. The list of official centers reads like a telephone book: [Aalten 300, Alkmaar 460, Almelo 378, Almere 800, Alphen aan den Rijn 1,140, Amersfoort 301, Apeldoorn 400, Arnhem – De Berg 400, Arnhem-Zuid – Vreedenburgh 339, Azelo 375, Baexem 425, Bellingwolde 345, Bergen aan Zee 95, Borculo 130, Breda 400, Budel-Cranendonck 1,700, Budel-Dorplein 239, Burgum             450, Delfzijl 430, Den Haag 600, Den Haag – Loosduinen 40, Den Helder – Doggershoek 575, Den Helder – Maaskampkazerne 300, Den Helder 372, Deventer 50, Doetinchem 350, Drachten 460, Dronten 1,000, Echt 414, Ede 370, Eindhoven 700, Emmen 500, Geeuwenbrug 75, Gilze en Rijen 1,200, Goes 300, Gorinchem 300, Grave 600, Groningen                550, Grou, Oer ‘t Hout 195, Gulpen-Wittem 250, Haarlem 400, Heerhugowaard 600, Heerlen 412, Hengelo (OV) 135, Hoogeveen 1,000, Katwijk 1,170, Kolham 400, Leersum 675, Lelystad Schepenen 230, Leeuwarden 600, Leiden 250, Luttelgeest 1,000, Maastricht 600, Middelburg 330, Musselkanaal 450, Nijmegen Heumensoord 3,000, Nijmegen 325, Oisterwijk 450, Ommen 370, Onnen 480, Ootmarsum 230, Oranje 700, Oude Pekela 467, Overberg 200, Overloon 800, Rosmalen 500, ‘s-Gravendeel 375, Schalkhaar 550, Scheerwolde 35, Sint Annaparochie 400, Stadskanaal 538, Sweikhuizen 242, Ter Apel 2,000, Terneuzen 600, Tilburg 400, Utrecht 450, Utrecht Kanaleneiland 500, Valkenswaard 400, Veenhuizen 600, Venlo 480, Vierhouten 60, Vledder 180, Wageningen 246, Wassenaar 750, Weert 1,000, Winterswijk 500, Zaanstad Rijshoutweg 300, Zaanstad Burg. in ‘t Veldpark 500, Zeist 379, Zweeloo 450, Zwolle IJsselhallen 400 …] spread them thin, avoid large concentrations and it’s impressive how many you can hide away in a country a little large than twice the size of the state of New Jersey.

The recent “refugee crisis” has meant however that even this is not enough. Refugees are being shuttled from one temporary location (where they are legally only allowed to stay for 72 hours) to another – sports halls, empty office buildings, vacation parks, tents. It’s hardly any wonder that locals, who see their children no longer able to take part in school sports because the local gym is occupied, are getting annoyed. It no wonder that the refugees themselves are becoming increasingly aggressive, and no surprise that problems like scabies outbreaks are beginning to appear.

Rather than limit the number of incoming refugees, all Dutch citizens are urged to step up and accept their moral responsibility. The Dutch COA agency sent out an appeal to local authorities to “do the right thing” and find locations where the refugees could be housed and the local authorities have responded.

Dutch Democracy

Dutch democracy, like a lot of things Dutch, appears to be very similar to democracy in many other countries but, like a lot of other things Dutch, the Dutch have their very own interpretation. The democratic part of Dutch local authorities is the “Raad” or council. These are elected. Well, not quite. Votes can be cast for individuals (with literally hundreds of names of anonymous individuals appearing on ballot forms) or political parties. The parties then choose their office holders based on the number of total votes they received. This can mean that an office holder may actually have received only a few tens of votes. Above the council is the “burgermeester” (mayor, appointed, not elected) and the “wethouders” (aldermen, chosen by the council, not elected), together forming the “college van burgermeester en wethouders” (“B&W” for short). While the council may veto B&W decisions, the B&W holds the executive power and makes its decisions independently of the council.

Why is this important? It’s important because this is the reason why there have been riots in Geldermalsen, protests in Steenbergen, demonstrations in Glanerbrug, and why there will be many, many more.

Locals in Dutch town have had enough

Reuters: Riot in Dutch town over plan for asylum-seeker center

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Dutch police on Wednesday fired warning shots in an effort to disperse a crowd, as a protest against plans to house asylum-seekers in a small town turned into a riot.

Police in Geldermalsen, near Utrecht, said via their official Twitter account they had “so far made numerous arrests, it’s is not clear yet how many”. No serious injuries were reported.

Images and videos of the incident showed dozens of youths tearing down fences, throwing beer bottles and fireworks at police, and chanting slogans against the proposed center for asylum-seekers.

According to national broadcaster NOS, around 2,000 people joined the protest in a town of 27,000.

A meeting of the town’s council to decide on whether to build the center to house 1,500 asylum-seekers had to be halted. A regional broadcaster showed footage of the meeting being evacuated by shouting policemen as rioters sought to force their way into the building. […]

There will be more on this tomorrow. This is not the first time the Dutch government has tried to force a large population on a small Dutch town and it did not go well. Researching riots in Blitterswijk, Apeldoorn, and Otterlo would show similar events. I hope to have an article on that tomorrow as well as more on this.


Declaration of Geert Wilders before the Court sitting in Chambers, Tribunal The Hague, November 25, 2015 at 3:00 pm

Mr. President, members of the Chamber,

I have the right to a fair trial. That is why I am here.
Not to ask you a favor. But to ask you what I am entitled to.
A fair trial. And the right to defend myself in the best possible way.
If you do not give me that chance then this trial will be a farce.

During the first meeting the investigative judge told to me, “You should have a fair chance, the law will be interpreted broadly.” But the opposite has happened. All my 39 requests, all the requests from the defendant have been rejected.
Apparently, I am not allowed an adequate defense.

The investigative judge is uncritically following the Public Prosecutor. The Chamber agreed with the Public Prosecutor to reject the first twelve requests. Hopefully, that will not be the case for the 27 rejections that you must decide on now. Because if all reasonable requests are rejected, then I cannot defend myself, and I apparently have to be sentenced at all costs.

I am taken to court for what I have said.
But I have said nothing wrong.
Fewer Moroccans, fewer Syrians, fewer Mexicans, fewer Russians, I do not see why stating that is punishable. However, when Turkish members of the Dutch parliament call me a tumor that must be fought and when they compare me to Hitler, then there is no consternation, no massive complaints on pre-printed forms, no prime minister who speaks shame of it and no Public Prosecutor to come into action.
What kind of country are we living in?!

I speak for millions of Dutch. And I will continue to do so.
That is my duty as a representative of the people.
And that is my right. It is a travesty that I have to stand here before you today.

I have done nothing wrong.
At least, I want to be allowed to defend myself in court.
I want to hear witnesses and experts so that I can defend myself.

The investigative judge promised me a fair chance, but he did not give me such a chance.
I now turn to you: Give me the chance to defend myself.
Give me the chance to a fair trial.

Lone muslim gunman gets taken down at Dutch TV station


Muslim goes into Dutch TV station with handgun, makes demands, gets taken down

(Article in Dutch consists of only: “An armed man has invaded tonight NOS studio. He was overpowered by police.Check out the images of his arrest.” by google Translate)

Thank you Don L.,

M sends this video. It appears that our gunman is named Tariq Zahzah

(Exactly what do security guards in The Netherlands do?)

M sent us an image of the note handed to the security guard and a translation:

‘When you read this, dont panic. dont yell and dont warn your colleages. Act like there is nothing happening. I am heavyly armed. when you just collaborate neatly, then nothing will happen to you. Realise that i am not alone. There are 5 more plus 98 hackers that stand ready for a cyberattack. Also there are eight heavy explosives placed that contain radioactive material. If you dont bring me to studio 8 to make a broadcast then we are forced to take action. You dont want that on your conscious right? So lead me now to studio 8, the NOS studio.’

‘We are being taken hostage by heavily armed men. (arrow in studio 8 media park Hilversum) There are more of them in the rest of the country and they have 98 hackers standing ready for a cyberattack. There also have been placed 8 heavy explosives containing radioactive material. They want to do a live broadcast to tell their story. If the live broadcast is disturbed by any means, they will go to action. From the outside they watch if the live broadcast can be watched throughout the Netherlands. Their conditions are among others: 1. This building wont be stormed. 2. The live broadcast wont be slowed down, not a single second and not edited. 3. To be clear there would be no information beam and no subtitles added to the love broadcast. If the conditions are respected we will be released. I will repeat it again (REPEAT)

“Without Islam, The Netherlands would be a wonderful country”

The Netherlands must be de-Islamised,

All mosques must be closed,

Jihadists must be expelled from the country and never allowed back,

The borders must be closed to people from Islamic countries,

The government must commit itself to voluntary migration to Muslim countries,

Criminals with a double passport must be expelled,


And only if these measures are implemented will the Netherlands see a positive change.

Possible fraud under investigation in at least five anti-jihad projects

An original translation by SIMONXML

From this Dutch site:

By: Merijn Rengers, John Schoorl – 09/20/14, 07:01

The Public Prosecutor (OM) is investigating fraud and corruption in at least five major anti-radicalization projects. This has been revealed by investigations by the Dutch Volkskrant newspaper into the  misuse of subsidies to combat jihadism in the Netherlands.

According to a spokesperson for the OM there are two suspects in a criminal investigation into fraud involving subsidies provided by the Institute for Multicultural Affairs (FORUM). Those involved say that it concerns two anti-radicalization experts who were arrested on July 31 in The Hague

One is FORUM program manager and Labour politician Halim el Madkouri, the other the Hague Berber activist, Farid L. Shortly before his arrest, the latter had been seen by a number of undercover agents giving an envelope containing four thousand euros in cash to El Madkouri  in a coffee bar.

Dad, I’m sorry to say that I can no longer defend your religion

An original translation from SIMONXML

From Volksrandt:

OPINION – Ferdows Kazemi – 09/14/14, 09:00

Open letter ‘Now the evil of your faith is taking over the world, it’s your turn to resist those who will not spare their own brothers,” writes Ferdows Kazemi in an open letter to her father.

Dear Daddy,

Over the last two weeks I have been teaching the daughter of your brother Dutch. As you know, she has to become naturalized before she is finally reunited with her husband in the Netherlands. She’s a sweet girl and above all very eager to learn, like many girls in Iran. She can already say short sentences.

She asked our daughter, in Dutch: “Do you have a children’s book for me?” I was proud of her that she had only been here for two weeks and already could speak a complete and correct sentence. And even prouder that she asked for a book. Admittedly, a children’s book – just like I started 21 years ago – but a book.
favorite song

Last week I let her hear a song, my favorite Dutch song with the lyrics. She had to listen and fill in the missing words in the text. Stef Bos sang “Daddy … and you believe in God. So you’re going to heaven. And I believe in nothing. So we will never meet again after death, never again after death”.

It does not matter how often I hear this song. This part of the text still touches me. Your cousin did not notice that I had tears in my eyes. She was busy filling in the holes in the text.

Dear Daddy, you believe in God and his Prophet Mohammad and I believe in nothing. I had already lost touch with your God and his prophet by my 21st. So, we grew apart; we do not understand each other. We did this without losing each other. You still pray that God forgives me for my wickedness, because you do think I am a good person.

And I have always loved you, despite my dislike of your God, because I think you’re a good man. But Daddy before your God forgives me for my wickedness, you must forgive me that I do not need forgiveness. I’m sorry to say that I can no longer defend your religion. I can no longer downplay so many crimes that your fellow believers in the world commit. “Can you explain so many crimes committed by Westerners in the name of civilisation”, would be your answer. No dad, I have no explanation for that either. But you know that I have always fiercely opposed that. I have never downplayed it. Now the evil of your faith is taking over the world, it’s your turn to resist those who will not even spare their own brothers and sisters. Continue Reading →

Breaking scandal in the Netherlands: Hundreds of muslims in assassination gangs

This is a translation of the relevant bits of an article from the Dutch press done by SimonXML with thanks.

From Volkkrant

The group of Moroccan-Dutch youths who are involved in at least six assassinations in the Netherlands and Antwerp in a series of extremely violent robberies, is much larger than expected. According to the Amsterdam police it is not a few dozen, but “hundreds” of young people in the Netherlands and Morocco. These drug dealers, shooters, agents and facilitators, all of whom are linked to one another.

According to detectives, a quarter to a third of the new apartments in Tangier, one of the safe havens across the border in Spain, is financed with dirty money – from the Netherlands and other countries. Almost weekly trips are made by one or more Dutch police teams to Morocco for criminal investigation or seizure. The Dutch police and the judiciary have already had assets seized amount to approximately 100 million euros in the North African country, mainly in real estate with which money is laundered.

Islamic School in the Netherlands declared bankrupt

Translation by XML SIMON With Thanks.

Ibn Ghaldoun declared bankrupt, 8 October 2013


The Ibn Ghaldoun school in Rotterdam has been declared bankrupt. The Court in Rotterdam declared the bankruptcy on Tuesday.

The Islamic secondary school drew media attention this summer when 27 exam papers were stolen.

In addition, it emerged from inspection that the quality of education had been poor for years. There were also administrative and financial problems.

State Secretary for Education Sander Dekker (VVD) announced last month in response to the findings of the inspection that state financing would stop as of 1 November. Shortly after, the school filed for bankruptcy.

The more than six hundred pupils of the school can for the time being be accommodated by the Christian association Melanchthon. They will be taught at the current location as a temporary branch of the school association. There will however be completely new teaching staff.

(Note from translator below)

What is more disturbing is that apparently the authorities had been tipped off about grade and exam fraud at the school in April, 2 months before it came out about the exam papers being stolen, and did nothing. They are now claiming that it was because they had planned an inspection anyway. There will be an enquiry, but you can be certain the excuses will come thick and fast. Should point out the seriousness of the exam paper theft – all schools thoughout the country get the same exams. The papers had been stolen, so in theory every kid in the country could have known the questions in advance. The authorities had to do some serious damage management.

The NRC newspaper has a copy of the letter sent by an anonymous teacher in April to complain about the school.

It turned out that teachers has been fiddling with the grades, letting kids go on to the next year they should have stayd behind. Apparently the school’s true academic results were shocking.
