    "...A Long Last,...They at last Come to their Senses......."

    The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands.

    A new integration bill which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads: "The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people.

    In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society."

    The letter continues: "A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens. It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands.

    The integration will not be tailored to different groups."


    The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants. For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants to ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.

    It would be wishful thinking that the US could adopt a law which champions American culture over imports. There are literally millions of people out there who think that Americans (edit: aren't) entitled to have a common language and core culture. Too many of those idiots are employed as teachers and professors.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
