It’s well-known that Western diplomatic officials stationed in Saudi Arabia generally exhibit embarrassingly obsequious behavior towards the religion of their hosts. Some of them — notably certain CIA station chiefs — even convert to Islam and studiously observe all the outward forms of the Mohammedan religion.
The latest egregious example of dhimmi behavior by the Dutch ambassador to Saudi Arabia has prompted an official protest by Geert Wilders and the Party for Freedom (Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV). Below is a press release sent out this morning by the PVV:
PVV: Recall the Dutch dhimmi ambassador to Saudi Arabia
This morning, Laurens Westhoff, the Dutch Ambassador to Saudi Arabia, put up the following text on his twitter account:
Congratulations to all Saudi people on a very sucessful #Hajj2013 a showcase of Muslim unity, faith. Islam shows it is religion of peace
Geert Wilders MP and Raymond De Roon MP, two members of the Dutch Party for Freedom, demand that the Dutch government recall the Ambassador. See below:
Parliamentary questions of the PVV parliamentarians De Roon and Wilders to the Minister of Foreign Affairs about our dhimmi ambassador in Riyadh:
1. Have you seen the tweet of our Ambassador in Riyadh, which reads: “Congratulations to all Saudi people on a very sucessful #Hajj2013 a showcase of Muslim unity, faith. Islam shows it is religion of peace”? 2. Can you explain how the facts that Muslims walk around a black stone, throw pebbles at other stones, walk seven times hence and forth between two hills and perform other duties of the Hajj, demonstrate that the Islam is a “religion of peace”? 3. Are you familiar with the texts in the Koran that call for violence, the oppressive mentality of the Sharia and the millions of people whose throats have been slit by Muslims shouting “Allah is great”? 4. Are you prepared to immediately call back this ambassador who obviously is ignorant of all these facts or who behaves as a dhimmi? If not, why not?
