The following report was just sent in by our expatriate Dutch correspondent, H. Numan.
A few days a minor stir troubled the multicultural correctness of the Netherlands. Ms. Bouchra Ismaili replied as if stung by a wasp to perfectly reasonable questions from Mr. Jos Parbleu. I reported on this, and so did others. Here’s the latest:
Ms. Ismaili is now in serious political trouble. At first the faction chairman said this reply was merely stupid. However, he’d like to give Ms. Ismaili the benefit of doubt. As we all know, foxes may be able to loose their hair, but not their tricks. So right after being towed away from the cliffs, Ms. Ismaili reversed course, and went full steam ahead to crash on the rocks.
She posted the following remark on the Hizb ut-Tahrir website. On Sunday, after she was rebuked by here party for stupidity.
It’s high time to get rid of a culture which damages our Islam and for us to spread the true beauty of Islam. Only that way we can grow in our Islam. We should not waste energy in changing others but let us change ourselves.
Which culture is damaging Islam? The Greenland culture? Perhaps the culture of the Papuans? Or maybe the culture of the Dutch? Can a councilwoman representing a constituency say something like that? Right after being lightly slapped on the (covered) wrist?

Obviously not. Even some multicultural correctness goes to far, even for the supreme beings of multiculturalism. Ms. Ismaili has been asked, officially, by her entire PvdA faction to resign forthwith. Waiting for the political debate next Tuesday was a waste of time, according to her fellow faction members.
It all depends now on Ms. Ismaili, if she will gracefully resign. Which, in all likelihood will not happen. More than likely she will remain councilwoman, but operating now as an independent. (This is legal under Dutch law. A politician can be thrown out of the party, but unless criminal charges are filed, will keep his or her seat in the council or parliament. In fact, this happened to Wilders, and more recently Mrs. Verdonk.)
It seems to me Hizb ut-Tahrir will have their personal political representation in the city council of Charlois very soon. Since Ms. Ismaili can’t control her feelings, I assume she will do so dressed as offensively as possible. Exactly how is difficult to say, as a law is in progress to forbid wearing a burqa in political meetings and in schools. Nice for all those not-so-bright Dutchmen who voted her in.
