The Dutch are fearful of
too much, too soon.

According to Associated Press' Toby Sterling reporting from Amsterdam,
Netherlands, the Turkey intrusion upon the European Union could pose as a
strong negative with voters regarding the new EU constitution.
It is expected that the Netherlands will go along with France in saying a
resounding NO to the EU constitution. Many have not even read it;
nevertheless, they have already made up their minds against it.
The Dutch are fearful of too much, too soon. Things are moving along too
quickly for some of them. They fear that their little country may be taken
over by the more powerful nations in the proposed EU.
But it's Turkey - Muslim country - that brings looming fears in some Dutch
minds. They have heard that Turkey broadcasts itself to be a totally
secular nation. However, they know that Turkey is also Islamic spread
Turkey also has sought to include in EU proceedings a law stating that any
criticism of Muslim religion can lead to jail or worse. Such a law does
not equal freedom of speech to many Dutch citizens.
Sterling writes: ". . .voters will say no to voice their discontent
with the unpopular Dutch government. Many here are angry about price
increases that followed the introduction of the euro in 2002, and some
fear that Turkey will soon be admitted to the union, worsening tensions
between Dutch Muslims and the non-Muslim majority."
Muslims are swarming over the Netherlands, as far as many Dutch read it
these days. Muslims are amassing their strength to override Dutch
traditions and even kill non-Muslims. Dutch are very much aware that the
Koran stipulates that non-Muslims are regarded by Allah as infidels;
therefore, they must be slain. Those Muslims who do not join in the
killing of infidels are themselves to be slain.
The Dutch don't want blood in the streets by an increasing tension between
the Muslims and non-Muslims. They have lived with enough headlines
regarding fears looming between the two groups. The Dutch, liberal
themselves, are not liberal to the extent of having themselves
extinguished by a killing cult regarding itself as a world religion. They
know that it is not really a religion as much as it is a murdering based
With Turkey admitted to the EU, Dutch conclude they will be intimidated
mercilessly by Islamic rule. They have had their fill of that and want the
EU to turn back Islamic immigration-infiltration.
Therefore, it is expected that the anti-Turkey, anti-Muslim presence will
aid in dousing the approval of the proposed EU constitution.
