The Dutch Minister of Finance Wouter Bos is visiting the United States, and has some interesting things to say. He urges a comparison of Muslim immigrants in the Netherlands with American blacks. Does this mean that the ancestors of Dutch Muslims were brought to the Netherlands in chains centuries ago? The minister doesn’t say.
Our Flemish correspondent VH has translated a Dutch newspaper article on the topic. He includes this introduction:
Here is the latest brilliant brainwave from a Dutch Socialist Idiot who happens to be the Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Finance. He not only legalized over 26,000 illegal asylum seekers, allows over a hundred thousand low or no-skilled immigrants in, raises all taxes, possible and impossible, but also recently happily nationalized a few banks with the money of Dutch taxpayers, their children, and grandchildren: the national debt rises one hundred million euros per day…

Dutch Vice Prime Minister to American audience:
Compare the Muslims in the Netherlands with African-Americans
By Robin van der Kloor
The Muslim problem in the Netherlands is comparable with the problems America has with African-Americans. The United States does not have any trouble with Muslims, because they usually only allow in the mostly highly-educated immigrants — The Dutch Socialist Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Wouter Bos spoke in America on the Muslim problem in the Netherlands.
Lobby for G20
The Dutch Socialist Wouter Bos is in the USA to talk about, among other things, a possible Dutch participation in the G20 summit this September in Pittsburgh. Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende (Christian Democrat, CDA) will soon be traveling to America as well, to meet with President Barack Obama. That is what Vice Prime Minister Wouter Bos (Socialist-Labor, PvdA) said during a meeting in America on leftist politics, newspaper NRC Handelsblad reports.
According to Wouter Bos, within the Center for American Progress [where he gave a speech before, in 2005 — translator], which organized a discussion on left-wing politics, quite a lot of attention is being paid to Geert Wilders (Party for Freedom, PVV) and his approach to Islam.

To better understand the “Muslim problem”, according to Wouter Bos, Americans should not look at the Muslims in their own county, but rather at black Americans. America especially allows in more highly-educated immigrants; therefore there is little tension between Muslims and non-Muslims. The comparison with African-Americans is more to the point, says Bos.

Former Minister Vogelaar
Wouter Bos as leader of the Socialist PvdA interferes more often in the integration debate, a dossier that actually belongs to tasks of the Minister of Integration.
At one time the Socialist Ella Vogelaar used to do this, but Wouter Bos sacked this Minister [she was an absolute idiot and PR-disaster: an old school Marxist hailing the burka and mumbling about an Islamo-Christian-Jewish culture, but even so, she wasted billions of taxpayers money on Muslim ghettos — translator] and replaced her with (Socialist) Eberhard an der Laan, who is more in sync with Wouter Bos.
