Dutch government responds to OIC demands: “No,” says Dutch government
The Dutch cabinet has responded to unnecessary and inappropriate demands from the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation to “take necessary and appropriate action to contain the campaign of hatred and incitement by Wilders”.
Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal says:
The Dutch Government will continue to reject any call to gag a politician. The Netherlands enjoys freedom of expression and attaches great value to it.
We’ll take that as a “no” then.
Rosenthal did take pains, however, to point out that Wilders view’s do not reflect those of the Dutch government.
