Sagunto emailed us this morning from the Netherlands with his translation of an article that appears in today’s De Telegraaf:
Mosque calls infidels “dogs” during school trip
What should have been an educational school trip to a mosque for ten year olds from the public primary school “The Horizon” in Amsterdam turned out to be a tirade about unbelievers.
The stupefied children from group 7b and their senior companions got a lecture by the chairman of the mosque “El Mouchidine” who stated that unbelievers are dogs. The multicultural school regularly organizes trips to various religious institutions […] because the board thinks it important that their pupils become acquainted with all kinds of religious backgrounds.

In a letter to the parents the school authorities say they regret the incident: “We are shocked that the chairman of the mosque during the tour said to the children accompanied by their parents that unbelievers are dogs. This statement is unacceptable to us, because we involve our children is this project in order to develop respect for a free choice of religion.”
The board meanwhile has stated to the mosque that the behaviour of the chairman is unacceptable. Both parties don’t wish to give any further comments. “We will sort it out together and I’m not at all in the mood to talk to the Telegraaf”, says Mariët ten Berge from the school board. “We went to the mosque before and it always went well.”
When I pulled up the De Telegraaf story to check the link, I found the Google ads shown at right accompanying the text.
This has become more and more common lately — the most rabidly Islamophobic websites and blogs feature context-sensitive ads that are clearly aimed at Muslims, thanks to certain keywords that appear in our texts all the time.
Do you think that Islamist websites that rant and rave against the evil pornography and booze of the infidels are accompanied by ads for Jim Beam and Hustler magazine?
If so, it would be poetic justice…
