I believe that the government wants to send the message to others in Holland to shut their mouths. At the same time they want to put muslims at ease: Look, we're on your side. Ayaan Hirsi Ali is the bad one, we're the good guys.And if to emphase Hirsi Alis point, this week it emerged that Interior minister Guusje ter Horst (PvdA) commissioned a curriculum aimed at reducing radicalisation of 'youth' at an organisation whos members are known radicals. Islam in Europe has the details.
