Bruce manages to decrypt a Dutch government report on violence against gay people in Holland. I would like to ask one thing though before you read his report.
Even if the Dutch report is accurate and there is no chicanery of any kind, just because there is one delinquent in your family does that mean you have to allow the delinquents of every other family to come live with you?
On to Bruce Bawer’s excellent article. If you have not read his book While Europe Slept get it and read it and buy copies for your friends this Christmas

November 24, 2008 (6:59 P.M., CET): For years, gay-bashing has been on the rise in Amsterdam. It's well known among Dutch gays that young immigrant-group men are disproportionately responsible for these attacks (the great majority of which go unreported). There's no need for any study to prove this: the anecdotal evidence is immense. In the last couple of years, there have been several high-profile – and increasingly audacious – assaults on gay people, and routinely the perpetrators have been young Muslim men. It's obviously no coincidence that the perceived climb in gay-bashings over the last decade has seemed to track the increase in Amsterdam's Muslim population during the same period. (Meanwhile, the proportion of ethnic Dutch Amsterdammers has declined steadily.) For the rest of this article please go to http://memo.brucebawer.com/
