Netherlands bans Islamic veils and infuriates Muslims around the world by saying it is “the first step to de-Islamize the Netherlands”

The question for every non-Muslim society is whether they will preserve and defend their own customs and mores, or submit to the hegemony of Islamic principles. In every case, Muslims press for their own customs and principles and demand that others give way. The West is going to have to deal with this eventually, one way or the other, by insisting that all citizens obey the same laws, or by giving way and disintegrating as a unified society.

“Holland bans Islamic veils and ‘face-covering clothing’ as senator declares the move ‘the first step to de-Islamize the Netherlands,’” Pattaya One, June 27, 2018:

The Netherlands has approved a limited ban on ‘face-covering clothing’ in public places, including Islamic veils and robes such as the burqa and niqab. The move does not the hijab, which covers only the hair.

Firebrand far-right politician Geert Wilders had pushed for the ban for over a decade.

Parliament’s upper chamber made the final approval in a vote Tuesday.

Wilders’ Freedom Party claimed the development as a major victory, while Senator Marjolein Faber-Van de Klashorst called it ‘a historical day because this is the first step to de-Islamize the Netherlands.’

Successive Dutch governments have tried to ban niqabs, which cover most of the face but still show the eyes, and burqas, which cover the face and body.
