No. But i heard a crazy story about it.
I think it goes that there are "Drug Parks" in Holland, where drug addicts can just go there to take drugs, without being arrested. They are even provided with drugs there.
Well, I think you are talking about a church in Amsterdam which is providing a place for addicts to shoot up. Better to do it in a controlled environment where the needles go into biohazard containers than out in the open air.

haha, I always felt awkward in the US to have someone else pack my bags.

The liberalism is just allowing people to do prostitution (with all of the problems that entails such as AIDS), and allowing the nigerian drugs cartel to sell cocaine and ectasy openly to children and others on the streets.
The socialist model is a ridiculous way to run a country. Taking from the talented and hard working and giving to the criminal, ignorant and lazy.
The multiculturalism has led to a seething bed of islamic fundamentalism to which the indiginous population now object. There are more children of muslim immigrants (moroccans etc.) in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Den Hague than there are indiginous dutch children. The gay racist Pim Fontuyn almost became the ruler of this land.
Monique said:Prostitution, drugs and multiculturalism can be found anywhere.
Prostitution is regulated, drugs are regulated (ie stict screening for illegal trafficing on problem flights), allochtonous populations are in the process of being dispersed over cities and villages instead of having concentrated areas in suburbs.
I agree the socialist model is taken too far, which is being handled too: rescreening of people supposedly unfit to work, alleviating taxes on the succesful, etc.
Is his being gay supposed to make him worse than other racists or something?plus said:The gay racist Pim Fontuyn...
There have been many problems with integration and conflicts with fundamentalism. I live in an area dominated by turkish, moroccan and indian immigrants and I never experienced any problems and love the multicultural environment. The problems are with a subgroup of people that are not motivated to behave, I believe due to the negative attitude towards them.plover said:Anyway, I'm curious, what is the public agitiation with regards to the Islamic population in die Nederlands based on? Is it mostly fear? Is it a sense that Dutch tolerance and hospitality have been abused? Or is it more complex? (I know the main trigger was the murder of a film-maker there, I'm wondering what the sentiment behind the visible reactions is.)
